The Dinner Shows
Frequently asked questions about the dinner shows
I have absolutely no idea what to expect when attending a Comedy Dinner Show! Can you enlighten me?
The Dinner Shows are professional comedy interactive theatre where the audience (that’s you!) are the diners in a restaurant.
So, what is the format of the evening?
The show begins in the bar over pre–dinner drinks, where the audience are greeted by the characters. Then, when the time comes, you will be invited through into the restaurant where you will be served a three course meal.
The show is half–scripted and half–improvised by the actors, taking place around you whilst they eat. It references all the most famous bits from the original shows whilst having a narrative all of its own.
How long does the show last?
The show lasts for approximately two and half hours.
Is the show suitable for children?
Yes. The show is entirely “family friendly”.
Is there an interval?
No. There is no interval but you are free to get up whenever you like.
Will we be able to meet the cast after the show?
Yes. The cast will always return to the restaurant after the show to thank the audience and answer any questions.
Am I allowed to take photographs at the show?
Yes. Taking photographs is absolutely fine as long as you do not encroach upon the acting area.
Am I allowed to film the show?
No. Unfortunately, we do not allow the show to be filmed.
