Why is a comedy act good for your cruise ship entertainment?

  •  Setup
  •  Time
  •  A happier experience

“Laughter is a universal language and our guests really love to get together and laugh,” says Chris Nelson

A cruise is a great place to find the most diverse of crowds, the many number of languages being spoken, the number of ethnicities is just so vast. Finding an act which can blur the lines and help your audience actually enjoy together is quite tough. A comedy act, however, checks most of the boxes.

Laughter does not have to be Chinese or Canadian. Laughter is just a form of expression of happiness. It is so simple for comedians like Mark Crocker to bring the crowd together with their brand of humorous and clean comedy!

With acts like a light show or a dinner theatre, you are going to have to consider the amount of space this may occupy. Sometimes it leaves a lot less room for the audience to gather. But with a comedian, you just need a stage and you are good to go. Mark even brings his own puppet!

The time slot for most entertainment shows is during or post dinner. What if your guests needed a little change in the evening? Or during breakfast? You cannot possibly have a theatre in the breakfast hall!

But that is definitely not so with a comedian! They put the funny in wherever and whenever! The show never stops when you have Mark Crocker running it! Your guests can be entertained regardless of the time and the place!

With so many things happening around, sea sickness, bad weather or any other mishap that could happen, or even if the cruise is just having the best day ever, adding a bit of humor to the mix can never go amiss. The audience would definitely love a cruise ship entertainment which does not require them to put in much effort, just smile and have a great time!
