We are one of the few performance groups in the country specializing in ambush murder mystery dinners. For smaller groups of people, especially those in corporate or family situations where tension exists, an ambush murder mystery is perfect for creating a fun evening that will burst the bubble of tension and be memorable for all in attendance.
An ambush murder mystery begins in the guise of some other purpose. One of our more popular is that of our providing a stand-up comedian for the evening. That comedian is there with his girlfriend and having a nice time with the attendees. During cocktails and the beginning of the meal these characters are having a nice time mingling with the crowd. There are other characters as well, such as an assistant who believes himself to be a comedian, who also are outgoing and entertaining people.
During the actual meal, the comedian's wife appears and confronts the couple. Instead of a major argument, the comedian claims that the girlfriend is actually just there to take photos or his make-up artist. Tension builds as audience members struggle with the moral implications of not saying anything. The characters continue to grow the problems between them and walk a fine line to try to cause tension but not to the point that audience members intercede.
The comedian gets up to perform at the beginning of dessert. The comedian states that before he performs he wants to make a toast. He takes a drink of water and dies. At that point the audience is made aware that it is a murder mystery. After all, we don't want them calling the police!
The comedic detective takes over. Often, this is played by the victim. The detective pulls people up and does a comedy routine to get information out about the crime with the help of the audience. Once the suspects are narrowed down, the audience is asked to determine the murderer for the chance to win not-very-expensive prizes!
The audience believes that a comedian was hired for the evening and he shows up with his girlfriend. It's all fine until his wife arrives! Similarly, we have a Game Show Host scenario and a Dueling Comedians scenario.

WE COME TO YOU!
We do not have our own venues. We come to any restaurant, hotel, resort, cruise ship, or home. We can work with groups of any size in whatever location you want. The specific location may impact the cost and availability. We will discuss this with you.
Many US companies continue to grow one of our most productive relationships in the region. We understand the needs for local entertainment for Americans operating in Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Kobe, Osaka, and Yokohama. We help bring together Japanese and American business interests.
While the government of China has many restrictions and legal hoops to jump through, the companies that operate In Beijing, Shanghai, Sanya, Hong Kong and Macau find great business opportunities. The employees can feel isolated and we work to alleviate their longing for home.
The countries of Southeast Asia, including Indonesia in Jakarta, Vietnam, Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur, Thailand in Bangkok, Singapore, Brunai, and The Philippines, are filled with wonderful destinations for meetings & incentives events and hard-working people looking for opportunities.
India is a powerhouse that is on the move. Not only have they renamed Bombay to Mumbai, Madras to Chennai, and Bangalore to Bengaluru, Delhi dropped the New and Hyderabad has emerged as a major center for tech companies to operate.
America has long had a close relationship with the southern half of the peninsula. We work with the US military bases as well as multi-national companies to enhance their relationships and improve morale.
The companies that operate on the island are given to more stress due to the precarious nature of international tensions. Having a bit of escapist fun in Taipei or elsewhere can relieve that tension and allow the employees to concentrate on other things.
The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. Is it more than just entertainment? If you are looking to show appreciation to clients or employees, for example, then we would take one approach. If it is family and friends, we might approach it differently. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.
We need to know the city where the event will be as well as what kind of venue might be used, which can let us determine cost issues as well as legal hurdles that might be required. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options for the performance and have a better feel for the resources required. Knowing who might attend can impact language and content.
Let us be honest. Operating in Asia is not inexpensive. In fact, it can be quite costly. If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to try to operate at the lowest cost possible and not provide options to achieve the results that will exceed your requirements and expectations.
