The Dinner Detective

Now the largest Murder Mystery Dinner Show in the United States, The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show was voted 2007, 2008 and 2009 "Best Dinner Show" in Los Angeles and Denver. Having worked in the professional theater, TV and film industries for over 20 years, the collection of actors and producers have mastered the art of improvisational theatrical role playing and have ultimately created the perfect evening of entertainment. By hiding the actors among the customers and leaving everyone to suspect who is part of the show and who is not, the events are proven to be very engaging.

The Dinner Detective was founded on three simple ideas: to create a show with no hokey costumes, no lame scenarios and no campy dialogue. Having produced thousands of public and private shows and entertained tens of thousands of customers since the Los Angeles grand opening in November 2004, The Dinner Detective Murder Mystery Dinner Show is at the forefront of interactive dinner show entertainment. Specializing in everything from Fortune 500 company parties to individuals celebrating their birthdays and anniversaries, the options are very flexible. The Dinner Detective strives to engage all of the senses from the moment guests walk through the doors and they meticulously keep the focus on the overall entertainment experience.
