Each year we experiment on our MST3K audience, testing their laughing gear to the max. Well this time we deliver the ultimate challenge! Oh yes, a live improv' soundtrack to a feature film (which we will not announce until the night) delivered by some of the hottest comedy talent in the country.
Featuring improvisers from The Penny Dreadfuls, The Institute, The Ken Campbell Company, Die Nasty and the Spontaneity Shop, we are proud to welcome:
Cariad Lloyd (Founder of The Institute, star of 50 hour improvathon with Ken Campbell Company) Gemma Whelan (with Mike Leigh Assoc.)
Sara Pascoe (Runner Up in 'So You Think You're Funny' and 'Funny Women' Competitions 2008 and star of Channel 4's Free Agents)
Humphrey Ker (One of Penny Dreadfuls - Edinburgh 5* sell-out 3 years running, regular on BBC3 and Radio 4)
Paul Foxcroft (Founding member of The Institute and alumni of Canada's 'Die-Nasty' 53 hour improv)
This crack squad of very funny people will have to work hard to provide dialogue and sound effects for a feature film of our choosing!
But wait, not only do you get live comedy, for the first time we welcome CINEMATIC TITANIC to the line-up. Featuring Joel Hodgson (creator of MST3K ), Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Pehl from the original MST3K shows, Cinematic Titantic follows the same comedy tradition - find a crap movie and rip it apart.
We also have another Riffed track by Mike Nelson, another of the MST3K team... and of course there are two MST3K classics.
We start at 11.30pm and go through to 9.00am the next day - remember to sleep during the day, you will be up all night!
THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL (Rifftrax)
