Frequently asked questions

How does a ticketed comedy show work?


We encourage everyone to purchase tickets online in advance to all shows. We have a limited number of tickets available to each show, and often sell out. (Buying tickets in advance also saves our guests some dough!) Tickets levels are VIP or General Admission. Tickets can be purchased HERE

Each weekend, we offer two shows on Friday and two shows on Saturday, unless otherwise specified on the events page. Showtimes are 7PM (Door time 6PM) and 9:30PM (Door time 9PM). Attendees will be greeted (valid I.D. is required for entry), and seated by our friendly staff. We provide cocktail table service for all of our guests’ beverage needs, so you can relax and enjoy the show.

If you require special assistance or seating, please call us prior to 5PM the day of the show.

***Please be advised: comedy shows may often contain adult content. The views and opinions expressed by the comics during shows, or statements made publicly (such as on social media), are not reflective or affiliated with the views of Dead Crow Comedy Room, its owners, or staff. Dead Crow strongly encourages all prospective customers to preview a comic’s material prior to considering ticket purchases. Tickets are non-refundable.




Whats the difference between General Admission and VIP tickets?


General Admission tickets guarantee seating designated by staff, and are filled in first come, first served. Cocktail service is available.

V.I.P tickets allow audience members to be seated comfortably near the stage with their own dedicated cocktail server. V.I.P. ticket holders will be seated first, but also have the advantage of seats being saved if they're running late for a show. Reservations may only be made for V.I.P. ticketholders, and are accepted up to one hour prior to showtime.




Do you offer dinner?


No, Dead Crow does not serve food. However, we do host food trucks in the garden bar for customers to enjoy prior to, or after showtime. Check our Food Truck Schedule for more info.




Can I buy tickets the night of the show?


We strongly encourage guests to purchase tickets in advance, but we do sell tickets at the door one hour prior to showtime. Please keep in mind that these tickets are limited and CASH ONLY.




Do you refund, switch dates/times, or exchange tickets?


Tickets are non-refundable.

In the event of emergencies, tickets may be transferred to another date or time, so long as seating is available for the show requested. Ticket transfers must be made prior to showtime, and a ticket not claimed for a show cannot be transferred after the show has ended. Tickets may be transferred to another name prior to showtime. All ticket transfers must be requested at least one hour prior to showtime by calling (910)399-1750 or emailing info@deadcrowcomedy.com

As a reminder, the views and opinions expressed by the comics during shows, or statements made publicly (such as on social media), are not reflective or affiliated with the views of Dead Crow Comedy Room, its owners, or staff. Dead Crow strongly encourages all prospective customers to preview a comic’s material prior to considering ticket purchases to minimize potential misunderstandings




Reservations: Should I reserve seats, or how do I reserve seats?


Reservations may only be made for V.I.P. ticketholders. Tickets must be purchased in advance, and reservations must be made up to one hour prior to showtime by calling (910)399-1750, or emailing info@deadcrowcomedy.com.

General admission tickets are not eligible for reserved seating, and seats may not be saved for groups; all general admission ticketholders who wish to sit together, must arrive together.

Dead Crow is fully accessible, however, if you require special assistance or seating, please call us prior to 5PM the day of the show.




House rules, or can I be removed from a show?


Our goal is to provide a relaxed, fun, and safe experience for all. Table talk and heckling are not permitted, and are considered extremely rude to other paying customers. If anyone disrupts the show, they may be asked to leave the premises without a refund of their ticket purchase.

If a guest arrives noticeably impaired, staff reserves the right to refuse entry, and any tickets purchased in advance will not be refunded.

Cellphone use is not permitted during shows – this includes taking phone calls, photos, or video during the shows.

Please note: if you arrive after a show has begun, please be aware the lights will be dimmed, and the room can be difficult to navigate safely. Please allow staff to escort you to your seats.

Is there an age requirement?


We do not censor any acts, and therefore some may be more graphic than others. For this reason, we request that guests be at least 16 years of age. Anyone 16-17 years of age is required to have a parent or guardian present. Valid I.D. required.




What do you sell?


We offer a full menu of mixed drinks, spirits, beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages.




How can I pay?
