Have you ever heard the saying, “Laughter is the best medicine?” Who ever created that saying, I must give them a pat on the back for putting something into words that equals so much truth.

A saying like that might be kind of obvious, but never the less it manages to get the point across that sometimes all somebody needs is a little bit of laughter. And laughter, is exactly what you will get at a show called Shear Madness.

Shear Madness is one of the most popular entertainment shows around the world. The show gives out laugh after laugh with its’ unique blend of improvisation and a spine tingling mystery that is begging to be solved- by you!

About Shear Madness

This unique comedy-whodunit show takes place is the Shear Madness hair salon, where you will be witness to a murder. Your job as a member of the audience is to solve this committed murder.

What is so great about Shear Madness is that that audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and eventually solve the funniest mystery you will ever take part in. Instead of just sitting in a seat and being entertained, you get to be personally involved, which makes the experience all the more memorable.

Another wonderful thing about Shear Madness, is that the show is different every time. The plot will always be different, so the killer will never be the same.

Shear madness has been voted “Best Comedy of the Year” seven times by the Boston Globe and has received the title “Best Play of the Year” by both the Chicago Sun-Times and the Philadelphia Enquirer.

This show has also received the Raven Award from the Mystery Writers of America and has been inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame, the first play ever to receive that accolade.

Hilarious is one of the many adjectives that describes the content of this show, I promise you will not regret going.

With the new year starting in a full swing, it might do you some good to get out and have a laugh; after all, laughter is always a good idea.
