After reading trip adviser reviews, we bought tickets. It is a poor excuse for Theatre and comedy. We saw The Gin Club show. It was silly.

We saw the theatre as we were walking around Charleston and decided it would be a fun and unique experience for our last night in town. It was wonderfully entertaining and more fun than I had even imagined. The owner and fellow actors are so amazing and witty without being mean at all. This is the epitome of a class... More

Ok, let's cut right to the chase - this event is a riot! What a lot of fun! Run by a husband and wife team - who write the scripts, act, and host the event - make sure you put your hand up to participate in the storyline. About 2-ish hours - fun for all ages!

my sister, brother in law and I went to the show on Saturday night. I had seen it recommended on Trip Advisor and we were all very pleased. Great fun and the audience participation was hysterical.

We walked by on our first night in Charleston and heard the fun from the door before the show started. We (myself, and two boys 9 & 12) returned on Tuesday for the Clueless show. Fun was had by all! My 12 year old volunteered and did a great job with the script he was given. It was a hilarious... More

You MUST go to a show! Totally interactive and so much fun. The actors/actresses are so funny and it's small enough of an audience that you feel like everyone is involved and you are all friends. Definitely worth going! Not to miss!

Visiting from Australia with my husband & older children. Great local venue with excellent performers. Unique experience for the audience. Recommend for couples, families with children 12 and older and small groups. Funniest and most enjoyable night. Highly recommend.

This was by far one of the most fun activities we did in Charleston. My boyfriend and I were literally crying from laughing so hard. The actors were great and the audience participation was completely optional. Had a wonderful time and will definitely go again if we are in town!!

My husband & bought tickets in advance for the Murder/Mystery comedy show here (I highly recommend purchasing your tickets in advance, because they do sell out quickly, they were sold out when we went). It's a small place, but they pack the people in. There are tables in the middle, a small bar when you come in to sit &... More

Imagine if Agatha Christie did one of those "Real Housewives of..." reality shows as a sketch on Saturday Night Live. That will give you a good description of the Black Fedora's production of the "Church St. Daughters of the Late Unpleasantness Garden, Gun & Gin Club". Oh yes, there's the part (literally) where you and I come in. Before the... More
