MST3K Vets Live-Riff Today

The Mads – consisting of the original Mystery Science Theater 3000’s Trace Beaulieu (“Dr. Clayton Forrester”) and Frank Conniff (“TV’s Frank”) – will live-riff A Night of Shorts 2 today, January 12, at 8 pm ET.

The event will find the duo riffing to vintage educational short films. As a preview of what to expect, here’s a clip from October’s first Night of Shorts, with Beaulieu and Conniff taking on Health – Your Cleanliness, a short from 1953:

Following tonight’s riffing, The Mads will do a Q&A with their MST3K co-star Mary Jo Pehl (“Pearl Forrester”).

Tickets for The Mads: A Night of Shorts 2, which will be seen via a private YouTube feed, cost $10 through Eventbrite, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Minnesota’s Friends In Need Food Shelf.
