Q: After the entertainment show comes a calm. does this sound natural?
A: You can put it in this way,

"You can hear a penny drop after the show has ended."

Just means that it is so quite after the show that you can hear a coin if it is dropped on the floor.


Also the idiom by the other commenter is unfortunately wrong. It isn't,

"after the storm comes a calm"

It is,

"The calm before the storm"

Examples of this in life can be seen there are moments of peace before a time of war, or it is quiet before it gets loud and so forth like this.

Hope it helps!
