The Dinner Detective's renowned troupe of talented actors engages audiences with an evening of laughs, intrigue, and suspense as mock murder accompanies a four-course meal where everyone in attendance is a suspect. A dressed-down cast of professional Hollywood- and Chicago-trained sleuths circulates through the crowd, sniffing out phony alibis and asking the hard questions to solve the mystery of each whodunit. Before the night is over, the fictional criminal is cuffed and the most accurately detecting diner takes home a prize package.

The Dinner Detective leases out its gumshoes to clean up crime during private events such as fundraisers, family reunions, or embezzlement hearings. The thespians have sharpened their entertaining chops by performing for such Fortune 500 companies as Universal Studios and Walt Disney Imagineering.

Sprouting from rock 'n' roll roots, Rockabillies fuses the reverberating echoes of classic guitar riffs with handcrafted, half-pound burgers and a menu stocked with comforting eats. Guests inaugurate noshing sessions with sizzling starters such as buffalo chicken rolls—a symphony of grilled chicken, buffalo sauce, and blue cheese crumbles held in tune by crispy spring rolls. Next, dining duos or foursomes set aside air guitars to wrap hands around a Memphis burger, which is served balancing tiers of applewood-smoked bacon and a cloak of sweet barbecue sauce. Burger baristas outfit the cool rider with jalapeños and cream cheese, and crispy fries piled atop the Route 66 encourage groups to melodiously crunch to the beat of their own drum or the drums of on-stage performers.

Biography—Life as a Comedy mixes interview with improv to give audiences a one-of-a-kind comedic experience. Like an enchanted truck driver, host and Bovine Metropolis co-founder Eric Farone will take a different special guest—a mother, a restaurateur, or some other Denver-area denizen—down a busy eight-lane memory highway for each of the show's 18 performances, stopping along the way to examine various life experiences. As each guest discusses the events of his or her life, the show's cast will build on the stories to create hilarious ad-libbed scenes and other comedic spin-offs designed to tickle funny bones and massage humor nodes. The improvised action will include poetry, live music, and dance—all forged from the same sort of on-the-spot creative ingenuity that gave mankind such hilarious inventions as the Koosh ball and the daddy longlegs spider. After the show, head down the street to receive a free appetizer with the purchase of two beverages at PrimeBar. PrimeBar is a contemporary ale house that's accented with plenty of leather booths and plasma TVs for post-show show-watching.
