We weren't expecting to find a place like this; we were walking down the street and the merchandise in the window looked cool. They have some awesome board games and other cool merchandise based on Sherlock Holmes and other detectives and suspense figures. They also put on live shows; we watched and participated in an original Sherlock Holmes mystery. There's only a handful of actors; most of the (small) parts are played by audience volunteers. I ended up in the role of Dr. Watson for this play, which led to a bit of embarrassment as I had to do some ridiculous things in front of a large crowd of people. It was a lot of fun. You can feel the love the owners have for this unusual business venture. They really pack in the audience; there are some chairs (like one of ours) that are not in great locations, with a poor view of the "stage." It's a small space that they try to utilize, but there's a lot going on. The food is nothing to write home about, just some light snacks and beer bottles.

This "hole in the wall" comedy club is a spot that many tourists pass every day due to it's central location, but once you step inside, you'll find a show full of laughter, audience participation, and wonderful entertainment! We saw the No Clue show on a Sunday night and the quaint spot was filled with an audience ready to have a great time! There's only a few "real" actors and the rest of the scripted parts are given to some audience members. You can order drinks, snacks, and desserts, and all looked very appetizing! If you're looking for something to do after dinner one night in Charleston, I'd highly recommend!

My husband and I went to see Inspector NoClues Mystery last night. What a great way to spend the evening. In an intimate setting 4 cast members and volunteers from the audience presented a Clue like murder mystery with a lot of laughs, improvisation and just fun! And in the end you get to try to solve the mystery. Relax and just enjoy, you won’t be disappointed!!

We wish this group, concept and scripts could be sent to more cities. Having some audience members participate as characters was a great idea. They all did good jobs, but seeing how their friends enjoyed it, made it special. The script was very funny. And the four actors did wonderful jobs. We want to come back here to see another play.

Really awesome time, all the actors are clearly passionate about their work and really funny. I bet the shows could totally depend on the audience participation, but this audience was great too, and everyone in the room was in high spirits after we got warmed up by the cast. Also, they have 30-something pictures of detectives on the walls and they give you a sheet to fill them all out with- our family had a lot of fun guessing who they all were while we were waiting for everything to start. I’d love to come back again!!
