Every Day, MST3K

Watch Out For Snakes!

New Ventures

So, since MST3K went off the air in 1998, the former cast members have all found various activities to keep them going. For instance, Joel went off to California to write for other series and has even acted in a few other shows. Mike went on to write a few books and the other cast members formed comedy groups, or wrote for other shows or wrote various other books as well. But that love of riffing seems to be ingrained in all of them, because they all went back to doing what they love to do; make fun of bad movies. Joel, along with Trace Beaulieu, Josh Weinstein, Frank Conniff and Mary Jo Pehl, formed Cinematic Titanic and they tour the country riffing on bad movies before a live audience. Mike, along with Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett riff on newer and more famous movies over at Rifftrax.

I can say that I have been to a Cinematic Titanic show and I have seen some of the Rifftrax as well and I like them both. There’s something that is a lot of fun about going to a theater, sitting with a bunch of strangers and laughing at horrible movies. Of course, there is also something to be said about riffing on newer Hollywood megaflicks that most people seem to love, but in fact, really do need to be taken down a notch. If I had to choose between the two, I think I would opt for the Cinematic Titanic show over Rifftrax. But that’s just me. Either way, I still sort of get my MST3K fix, even though the show has been off the air for over ten years now.
