Mystery Science Theater Comes to the F.M. Kirby Center for a Brilliant Performance

The award-winning TV comedy, Mystery Science Theater 3000, is coming to Wilkes-Barre in an all-new, live show featuring Joel Hodgson, the original host and creative vision behind the beloved TV and Netflix comedy series for more than three decades, in his final live tour.

Following the wildly successful “Watch Out for Snakes! Tour” in 2017 and “30th Anniversary Tour” in 2018, Hodgson will don the red jumpsuit one final time as Joel Robinson to host Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live: The Great Cheesy Movie Circus Tour alongside the world’s greatest – and only – movie riffing robots, Tom Servo, Crow, and Gypsy.

“This is our third national tour, and it’s bigger than the first two combined,” said Hodgson. “I really wanted to do something special since it’s my farewell tour with MST3K Live. Also, Tom, Crow, and Gypsy have become such great live performers, I decided to give them the ultimate challenge: a movie riffing robot circus!”

The show gives fans the chance to sit in the same theater with their favorite characters and promises all of the MST3K signatures and rapid-fire hilarity that have built MST3K’s loyal following over more than 30 years: a cheesy B-movie, hilarious riffing, wisecracking robots, silly sketches, and Hodgson in the red jumpsuit as host Joel Robinson.

Produced by Alternaversal LLC, Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live will visit F.M. Kirby Center on October 23rd, with the never-before-screened film: Circus of Horrors. Tickets are available online at www.kirbycenter.org, at the Sundance Vacations Box Office and charge by phone at 570-826-1100.
