How it works

Upon booking, we will schedule a 15-minute call with The Dinner Detective to go over logistics for the event to ensure the night runs smoothly! Each show features a host/stage manager, co-host/customer service specialist, and up to 6 actors. What makes our shows so unique is improv-based comedy. All our plot lines are modern-day and loosely based on FBI cold cases. We are NOT period-themed, avoiding cheesy costumes and campy dialogues. Our Detectives lead the show, and table actors mix in with the crowd. We directly, unbeknownst in advance, involve 5-10 guests in each performance. This creates a very interactive and all-inclusive feel.

Please Note:

  • If the client wishes, they can provide a different office or venue
  • The cast will need to be able to rehearse at the venue on the day of (approx. 2 hrs before showtime)
  • The cast requires some sort of green room to be able to store belongings during event
