"Pure joy juice!" - Minneapolis Star Tribune
Joel Hodgson, acclaimed creator of the Peabody Award-winning cult classic Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K), touches down at The Loft to present his brand new one-man show, Riffing Myself, live in person! Featuring photos, videos, and notebook pages from Joel’s personal collection, Riffing Myself is an incredible evening packed with rich stories and hilarious surprises about his forays into the depths of B-movie madness, his search for the ultimate ventriloquist dummy (and how that dummy became the inspiration for beloved MST3K robots Tom Servo and Crow), and the legendary origin story of MST3K, from its humble beginnings at local Minneapolis-St.Paul station KTMA TV 23 to Comedy Central and beyond! It’s going to be a very weird, very special night as we get to know the man who helped make the world safe for bizarre B-movies like The Brain That Wouldn't Die and The Wild Wild World of Batwoman while beaming down countless laughs from the Satellite of Love!
