I would probably find him and turn him outside or kill him as that would keep me awake

A cricket in the house is supposed to be good luck. I would just leave the cricket alone.

I've had crickets in the house before but I never had to worry about it for long because I have cats and they love to catch bugs or anything else that moves, lol.

Pinpoint the exact location of the cricket. You will need to be very quiet and listen closely until you can determine the source of the chirping without scaring the cricket. Once you locate the cricket's hideout, move away slowly and carefully.
2
Try to obtain a visual of the cricket. This is probably going to be difficult and unlikely, since crickets like to hide in tight spaces, behind and underneath things. Catching and killing the cricket is much easier, obviously, if you have it in sight.
3
Place a cricket bait in the proximity of the cricket's hideout. Assuming that you have the patience to wait it out at least one more night, you can set out the bait or insecticide of your choice and probably catch the cricket in one night. Mix some molasses and water in an open jar and set it out near the cricket's location. The cricket will be attracted to the sweet, syrupy substance, but drown in the water when it climbs into the jar. Sprinkle some boric acid around the area, or use a cricket pesticide, depending on your preference and household needs.
4
Set a trap for the cricket using sticky bug traps. You can also use strips of duct tape or another strong double-sided tape to immobilize and catch the cricket.
5
Enlist the help of your pets. If you're fortunate enough to have a dog, cat or other pet that's a great hunter, bring them into the area to seek and destroy the noisy cricket. Although certainly not foolproof, it can at least provide you with some great entertainment.

i think the best way to get rid of a cricket is to listen to where it is find it then smash it but some ppl thin killing crickets are bad luck so smash at your own risk

I have never had a cricket in my house before. There is probably a site on the internet that you can find out how to get a cricket out of your house.

This is quoted from the website http://pests.getridofthings.com/get-rid-of-crickets.htm
"Place cricket traps along walls and in corners. Sticky traps or glue boards for mice and rats are better at catching crickets than they are rodents. Place a small amount of cornmeal at the center of each trap for bait and set a few traps in offending areas along walls, in corners, near heat and moisture sources, and wherever you’re having problems. They will soon be transformed into ghastly insect graveyards, which make great gifts. If your infestation is small and you’ve worked to pest-proof your home, you won’t need anything more expensive or complicated to control crickets."
