Thank you for watching the playlist videos about Sharpo!® Murder Mystery Parties and Dinner Shows. I hope you can see from watching me talk about it that that I love doing these parties. I did my first murder mystery show in 1989 and instantly fell in love with the whole art of interactive performing. These shows are not merely audience participation but they are immersion theater in the real sense. The professional actors stay in character throughout and create the adventure and comedy by interacting with the participants. Since that first show all those years ago I have played detective in countless murder mystery parties, performed in a thousands of events and dinner shows in every type of venue, for audiences big and small. The biggest group? 1100 for a convention in Atlanta. They projected me onto a huge screen and I felt like I was the Rolling Stones. The smallest group? Intimate Dinner Parties in the home for a family of 7.
There are too many to count. I have been everywhere and played everywhere but - I really love the murder mystery weekends at the historic Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, Private groups and corporate murder mystery events on board the incredible (and haunted if you ask me) Queen Mary in Long Beach, and of course our fantastic "home base" for our murder mystery dinner theater in the San Fernando Valley: The charming 94th Aero Squadron.

A Fresh Ever Evolving Show:
So have I seen it all in my many years doing this exciting and fun work? I kid you not - I learn something new on every show! The act is continually evolving and must keep evolving. Keeps it fresh, current and relevant to all audiences! By the way, we made an independent award winning movie adapted from our famous "Haunted Painting" murder mystery show! Its called "Canvas the Night" and is on Amazon and Vimeo on Demand. It was fun to do and - hey - that's what I am all about. I am on a mission to make life more fun! We have several Murder Mystery plays to choose from and we customize each event.
Show Me That Magic Trick Again?!
Did you watch the magic video too? The video features me doing my patter and some fun routines. I got involved with magic many years ago. I was an actor trying to get my big break in Hollywood and I needed a day job. I started entertaining as pirates and clowns at kids parties. I had to learn some magic as part of the gig. Loved it right away. I had three tricks and I milked them for a half an hour! The kids howled and screamed for more and so did the parents. I started playing harmonica and writing some kids songs too - One of which is prominently featured in the famous Jim Carrey movie, "Liar Liar." I'll bet you've heard the song too. "I'm so happy today, I live in the U.S.A, Where I am different, and special and unique, it's good to be me." Now that I have kids of my own I really get the importance of making birthdays special! My children sing that song to me all the time now and we all laugh about it. I have been performing for kids parties in Southern California since 1992!
Hooray for Hollywood!
When I got some breaks and started working in TV and Movies, One role I landed was a Co-starring role on the long running NBC sitcom, "Wings". I played a Three Card Monte Dealer in New York City who hustled Crystal Bernard out of a couple of hundred bucks. I didn't know how to do 3 card monte but if you watched the video above you can see I sure got the hang of it. It is still a blast to do at cocktail parties and with the patter it really gets the crowd rolling! Over the years I have added many closeup routines that I do while strolling. I also produced the Magic Comedy Dinner show at the Santa Fe Cafe in Northridge.

Yes, I have indeed lead a very charmed life. It is a mystery to me how that happened! My Grandma Dotty always told me, "Be Lucky!" - I think it was a command so I listened. I am glad I did.
