January 2020 - Make 'Em Laugh: Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live
It’s time to “laugh your tail off” at Popejoy Hall! Catch Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour with show creator Joel Hodgson, and the world’s greatest movie-riffing robots – Tom Servo, Crow, and Gypsy – as they embark on a hilarious tour of the cheesiest films ever made. The tour is based on the original show that aired for 11 years starting in 1988. Mad scientist Dr. Clayton Forrester and his crony, TV’s Frank, forced him to watch bad movies as part of an evil experiment. To keep his sanity, Joel built a cast of lovable robot sidekicks: Crow, Tom Servo, Gypsy, and Cambot. Together, they watched bad movies and through their wisecracks, quips, and friendships made it through never-ending terrible cinema while entertaining audiences with gut-busting hilarity, jokes, and commentary. The show won over fans and became one of the most beloved cult TV shows of all time. This tour will be the last chance to see Hodgson perform the unique comedic art form he created on his final live tour, with Popejoy transforming the stage into a circus-themed party with non-stop humor, spirited sketches, songs, and jokes riffed on a “So-Bad-It’s-Good” Feature film. Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour is on Friday, February 14th, 2020 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are available online at popejoypresents.com.
