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.
Opener/Special Guest - our openers and/or special guests are either local amateur comedians or traveling comedians who pop into the club and might typically perform between 5-10 minutes.
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 and some ambient lights, 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? Our washrooms are just down the corridor with ample space for multiple patrons - we are working to equip them with speakers so that you don't miss any of the show!
Crickets Comedy Club is pleased to offer a wide array of beverages available before and during the performance.
Table top lights are available to alert the wait staff to your order request during the show. Please refrain from getting up during the performance if at all possible, the low lighting and tripping hazards make it dangerous; our staff are trained to assist you with anything you need.
Our Winnipeg club is pleased to feature a full food menu as well to complement your stand-up comedy experience. The food is fantastic, ALMOST as good as the comedy!
