Once settled in banquet seating in a medieval-styled hall, guests dig into a four-course, family-style smorgasbord, which has previously included dishes such as slow-roasted beef, cranberry-nut bread, rosemary fowl, and cinnamon fritters. (The menu changes regularly.) Once stomachs are satisfied, audiences turn their attention to a 15th-century comedy show full of modern satire before getting a close view of an intense sword fight with fully armored knights. A new script begins airing in September and will run through the end of the year. Shows are held Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m.

Medieval Madness

Even though the banquet hall at Medieval Madness is eternally stuck in the 15th century, its court isn't content to perform the same show forever. Every four months, the troupe updates its production of comedy and knightly combat, swapping out anachronistic nods to politics and modern life as often as kings jail their favorite jesters for disobeying the fashion police. Each evening's reverie begins with a four-course meal served family style and eaten entirely without utensils at long banquet tables. Like the show, the menu regularly rotates, though it always includes a succulent pear sauce crafted from an 800-year-old recipe, a perfect complement when drizzled over roasted meats or smeared on an opposing clan's coat of arms. Throughout the evening, guests watch on as the duke and duchess lob insults at each other, wenches break into tawdry songs, and knights fully clad in chainmail part the tables to challenge one another in exhilarating sword fights.

The show is excellent and so is the food.

Medieval Madness is as unique as it is excellent. I'm sorry that Karla has left the show; but Thomas and the cast were awesome. I totally enjoyed the new show and Thomas' stand-up was great.
