After an incredible tour in 2017, “Mystery Science Theater 3000” announces the MST3K Live 30th Anniversary Tour featuring, for the first time in 25 years, original host and MST3Kcreator Joel Hodgson back in the red jumpsuit as Joel Robinson. Alongside new MST3Khost Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray), Joel, Jonah and the Bots will bring new movies and all new riffs and sketches live to the stage across U.S. cities this fall. The MST3K 2018 Tourkicks off October 9in Portland, ME and hits 29 cities to perform 42 shows across the U.S. Tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, June 8 via AXS.com and local venue box offices.
Of the upcoming tour, Hodgson says, “The craziest and most exciting thing for me is that I am putting on my old jumpsuit and will be riffing live, shoulder to shoulder with Jonah, Crow, and Tom Servo for two incredibly strange feature films.I’m going to have to go into training to get caught up to the skill level of Jonah and this new cast. If you saw last year’s tour you have some idea just how talented these young movie riffers are.”
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live 30thAnniversary Tourconsists of two separate, completely unique shows, each with its own admission. Fans wanting the complete tour experience will want to purchase two tickets, one for each show. Each event will include all the things expected from an MST3Kexperience: a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, plus – for the first time – Joel and Jonah riffing together side-by-side. Both shows feature movies never before seen on the MST3K series. Show # 1 is “The Brain”, a Canadian science fiction suburban nightmare. Show # 2 is “Deathstalker”, a fun sword and sandal epic with a horrible monster.
Following its record-breaking #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter campaign, the inaugural new season of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” launched on April 14, 2017, exclusively on Netflix and earned a critics’ rating of “100% Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes. The New York Times hails, “At last, a revival of something actually worth reviving… a different cast but the same outlook and style — and mercifully, the same reliable, giddy humor.” “MST3K is just as hilarious as ever in rebooted form, turning its bemused eye on old, schlocky fare for some good, old-fashioned riffing,” raves Vanity Fair. And Nerdist says, “The references are updated, the sets are snazzier, but the heart and soul of MST3K certainly remains intact.” In November of 2017, it was announced that Netflix was renewing the series, and the second season will air “in the not-too-distant future.”
HISTORY OF MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: For almost 30 years, the award-winning comedy television series Mystery Science Theater 3000 has been known as one of the top cult TV shows of all time. The story of a human host and his robot sidekicks trapped aboard a satellite and forced to watch cheesy movies by their captors, MST3K has maintained its reputation thanks to its fervently devoted fan base, known as MSTies.
Created by Joel Hodgson, the first season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 aired in 1988 on KTMA-TV in Minneapolis. Set on the Satellite of Love, the series follows a hapless host trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space, who is forced to watch some of the most outrageously unfortunate B-movies ever created. To keep sane, he’s built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a lively movie theater peanut gallery.
MST3K’s national broadcast life began in 1989 on the Comedy Channel (later to become Comedy Central), where it ran for seven seasons. The show’s final three seasons aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. Series creator Hodgson originally played the stranded man, Joel Robinson. When he left in 1993, series head writer Mike Nelson replaced him as the new B-movie victim, and continued in the role for the rest of the show’s run. The format proved to be popular, and during its ten seasons and 197 episodes on Comedy Central and the Sci-Fi Channel, it attained a loyal fan base and critical acclaim, including a Peabody Award and two Primetime Emmy® nominations.
In late 2015, Shout! Factory and creator Joel Hodgson formed a new partnership known as Satellite of Love LLC, to acquire the global IP rights to MST3K with the aim of producing new episodes and managing and developing the IP in other areas. The highly successful Mystery Science Theater Kickstarter campaign to #BringBackMST3K, spearheaded by Shout! Factory and Hodgson surpassed its goal by funding the production of 14 new episodes and set the world record as the highest-funded Film and TV crowdfunding campaign in history. The new episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000debuted as a Netflix Original Series on April 14th, 2017. Later in 2017, Netflix renewed the series for another season.
