The Birth of Crack ‘Em Up Comedy
About Our Founder
In 2003, our Founder, Nichelle Murdock, turned a passion for stand-up comedy, a love for live entertainment and her keen eye for talent into a growing business with unlimited possibilities. Nichelle developed her first stand-up comedy show, Crack’Em Up Thursdays at the World Famous Comedy Store located in West Hollywood, CA, now known as the Crack’Em Up Comedy Show. Nichelle saw an opportunity to fill a void, providing another platform for comedians. Nichelle’s dedication and focus on the ‘young up and comers’ aka the ‘rising stars’ of comedy, helped to shine the light on these sometimes over-looked acts.
Crack’Em Up provided an enjoyable work-out space (outside of the open mic nights at the local coffee houses) for the professional comedian. Supplying the comedians with a real audience (not just comics) generated a creative energy for those who want to incorporate crowd work into their sets while writing and developing new material.
In the years that followed, the quality of our shows, our ability to identify and embrace fresh diverse funny faces in a heavily saturated comedy market and our growing roster of talent, have been very instrumental in building a best in class & a hilarious stable of talent for our television and film projects.
Today, Crack’Em Up Comedy Entertainment (CEUCE), is one of Hollywood’s most consistent providers of live comedy entertainment. We currently have live weekly shows in Hollywood, CA as well as various pop-up shows across Southern California. In September 2017, we launched the Crack’Em Up Comedy Podcast (Seasons 1 & 2) on iTunes and SoundClound. Our uncut podcast was recorded live from the basement of The Comedy Store and featured comedians and guests from our Thursday night show. Season 3 coming soon, LIVE from the Belly Room green room. We retired our Crack’Em Up Wednesday Show at the Jazz Cafe at Music Hall (Detroit, MI) in 2017 after a five year run.
