The Dinner Detective currently performs public shows across the country in 75 locations, usually on Saturday nights, but hosts private events any night of the week.  Unlike a typical murder mystery dinner theatre performance, you won’t be watching a handful of actors stiffly reciting lines in front of the room.  The action happens all around you, and any person in the audience can end up being a part of the show, even YOU!  Throughout the night, you’ll find yourself wondering if what just happened was scripted or real!

We also offer customized private events and group murder mystery parties at each of our locations!  We have entertained tens of thousands of companies and private groups across the country, both large and small, and we’d love to craft a once-in-a-lifetime event for your team as well.  We can host murder mystery dinner theatre parties from 30 to 400, at our onsite locations and offsite at the venue of your choice!

Create a night to remember with a customized private event!

Hosting a party or private event? We specialize in custom private events for companies, groups, and organizations of almost every size! We can host your event at our locations, or we can bring a show to your home, business, or venue.

Since our Los Angeles Grand Opening in 2004, The Dinner Detective has quickly become the largest murder mystery dinner show in the United States, if not the World.  Our signature blend of intrigue, comedy, and spontaneity has enthralled millions of guests at our public and private shows.  Come see what all the fuss is about and choose your nearest location above to join us at an upcoming murder mystery dinner show! Or if you are buying tickets for someone special, we offer gift certificates as well!

Our professionally-trained actors have performed and taught worldwide, with credits from esteemed improv training centers such as UCBSecond City, iO and iO West, Annoyance Theater, and Voodoo Comedy, and with credits in Orange Is The New Black, Jurassic World, Preacher, and dozens of other shows and theaters.
