Shows are carefully put together, run approximately 90 minutes and typically include:
Host - The host varies from time to time, but will outline the rules of the club and the show as well as perform for anywhere from 10-30 minutes each show.
Openers/Special Guests - Our openers and special guests are typically local amateurs or visiting comedians who will do a short 5-10 minute set to open the show.
Feature - Our feature comedians vary in experience and expertise but do a great job warming up the crowd for the headliner; features are usually up and coming talent that perform for 20-25 minutes each show.
Headliner - This is the main event, the person on the poster and typically the most experienced comedian of the night, the headliner will typically perform anywhere from 40-60 minutes.
Lighting is turned off during the show except for stage lighting, as a result please keep cell phones off to avoid distracting other patrons.
Talking is also prohibited (unless the comedian asks you a question) though laughter is thoroughly encouraged.
Need a washroom break? Besides momentary periods of changeover throughout the show, the washrooms are equipped with speakers so you don't miss out on the show!
Crickets Comedy Club is pleased to offer a wide array of beverages available before and during the performance.
Tabletop lights are available to alert the wait staff to your order request during the show. Please avoid getting up for service as it can disrupt the other patrons and otherwise be hazardous with minimal lighting.
Our Thunder Bay location does not have a kitchen, though we do have a small selection of snacks available for purchase. If you are looking for a meal we highly recommend ordering from one of the city's great restaurants and bringing it with you; we have an open food policy that will allow you to bring whatever you like to eat in with you.
However, as we serve drinks - both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, outside drinks are not permitted.
