Mark your calendars geeks!
On Sunday, January 27th at The Trocadero, Geekadelphia is bringing Joel Hodgson to Philly for a day no MST3K fan will want to miss. In what Joel is dubbing Sunday in the Dark with Joel, you will not only get to see the classic MST3K episode The Pod People with an intro by Joel, but also get to see Joel’s new live presentation on all things MST3K Riffing Myself for the first time in Philadelphia.
Riffing Myself is an in-depth look at not only the creation of the cult phenomenon that is Mystery Science Theater 3000 or MST3K, but also the career thus far of its creator/star Joel Hodgson. The presentation, told through photos and video, shows the influences that affected Joel throughout his life and laid the groundwork for what eventually would become movie riffing, Joel’s love of film, and his career as a successful standup comedian.
I recently got to see Riffing Myself again at the Colonial Theatre and found it was a very intimate look at not only the creation of MST3K, but a very intimate look at Joel’s life and creative process as well. If you are a fan of either Joel or MST3K I can not suggest checking this out enough.
Doors will open at 3pm, with the event starting at 4pm. Tickets for the 21+ only event are $22.50 for regular admission and $39.50 for VIP. They can be purchased on the Trocadero’s website here.
