Sorry to leave you this note. I've been taken into custody by the police.

Last night I was woken by a gunshot and came downstairs to find Mr. Jest, (founder of Jest Murder Mystery Co), dead in this very chair. The police seem to think I know more than I'm telling them about the murder.

Until I get back, can you make yourself comfortable? Feel free to poke around.

Check out the books on the book shelves for more information about Jest Murder Mystery Co.

Randy Manning

Jest Murder Mystery Company is the creation of St Louis actor/writer Randy Manning.

When he started the Jest Murder Mystery Company in 1999, Randy realized he had plenty of competition in St Louis.

So, even though he was the smallest mystery provider in the St Louis area, he thought if he hired “the best” comedy improv actors and combined them with his original comedy scripts…Jest would succeed. With that formula Jest has now become the funniest, (and largest), murder mystery company in St Louis, (and perhaps nationwide?).

You may recognize Jest mysteries when attending shows at places like: The Lemp Mansion, Orlando Gardens, Pere Marquette Lodge, Eckert’s, and many others.

Check out these locations for our Public Shows.

Pere Marquette Lodge


And our actors? They’re the best! Many have University training, but also have worked with Bill Chott’s Improv Trick, Ed Reggi’s Paperslip Theater, and many others!

So, if you are interested in entertainment for your corporation, group, club, birthday party, etc…you should keep in mind that, unfortunately,…not all murder mystery companies are created equal.

In fact, our clients tell us all the time, “Jest is the best murder mystery show I’ve ever attended”. Well…thanks. We think so too.
