Event Details

For the first time ever, join Joel Hodgson, creator/host of the critically-acclaimed Mystery Science Theater 3000 TV show and its new host Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray) as they bring the first live touring production of MST3K to San Diego during Comic-Con. The tour will have shows both Friday and Saturday nights, with show #1 the MST3K favorite Eegah featuring all new riffs and sketches. Show # 2 is a “Secret Surprise Film!” It’s a fun, sci-fi thriller never-before featured on MST3K.

Tickets start at $39.50 and will be available on the San Diego Theatres website.

More info on the MST3K Live! Watch out for snakes! Tour that will be nationwide in July and August can be found on their tour site.

Appearing with Joel and Jonah live on stage will be robot companions Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy, along with Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen. Of course, it wouldn’t be MST3K without the ever-present surveillance of the Mads, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) checking up on their unwilling test subjects via remote video.

The tour consists of two separate, completely unique shows, each with separate admissions. Fans wanting the complete tour experience should purchase two tickets, one for each show. Each event will include all the things expected from an MST3K experience: a cheesy B movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches plus – for the first time – audience participation!
