Thanks to Jacob's heckling the lead actor of the play has quit, but the show must go on. Christopher Carver has been murdered and Jacob is the only one who can solve it. Now with no script and no rehearsal he must unravel the mystery in Gumshoe.

Gumshoe ran at the 2014 Edmonton Fringe from August 14th to August 24th, it had six shows at the Telus Building.

The cute and campy Gumshoe is the perfect companion to a sunny Fringe afternoon and green onion cake. ... Jacob—and Maloney himself—carries Gumshoe from a bland beginning into a delightful hour of kitschy characters and heartfelt plot turns. While this meta mystery won’t jerk any tears or make you question the meaning of life, the clever script and whip-smart acting are well worth your $12.50.

Driven by two main actors whose physical comedy and wry line delivery are laugh-out-loud worthy, Gumshoe works on both levels it’s playing at – its meta, snarky commentary on noir tropes, and its comedy, where Patrick Maloney’s Jacob is delightfully bewildered as he stumbles through an unexpected performance. ... Ormandy’s performance revealed a talent for physical comedy, switching between a suspicious bombshell wife, a mistress, a police chief and a flakey actress simply using voice, posture and facial expressions more or less seamlessly. Simple twitches of her eyebrows got laughs.
