MST3K Goes Back on the Road with The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour

Coming to a theater near you: the all-new Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour! Join show creator and original host, Joel Hodgson, and the world’s greatest – and only – movie-riffing robots, Tom Servo, Crow T. Robot, and Gypsy, as they take you on an exhilarating roller coaster ride through some of the cheesiest films ever made.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 has earned its place in history as one of the Top 100 TV Shows of all time and is currently a hit show on Netflix. Now you can sit in the same theater with your favorite characters and experience this comedy phenomenon in a universally acclaimed LIVE event.

This is the last chance to see Joel as he celebrates his final live tour performing the unique comedic art form he created. As he shared in a message to the fans who donated to the show’s record setting Kickstarter that brought the show back.

“I should also tell you that this tour is very special to me, because this will be my final national tour as host. So yeah, I’m hoping to have the opportunity to meet as many of you as I can during my final circuit on the road. Don’t worry, though: that doesn’t mean it’s the end of MST3K, or MST3K LIVE! Jonah is in his holding-pen and deeply involved creatively with this tour as a writer and riff producer too. (Also… he’s promised me he’ll go out on the next tour!) “

The exhilarating, nonstop, rapid-fire hilarity is brimming with hundreds of jokes riffed on a “So-Bad-It’s-Good” feature film, plus spirited sketches and songs that turn the stage into a circus-themed party.

This year’s live tour will feature two new cheesy movies (the worst the can find) for prime riffing action.
