Mystery Science Theater 3000 or MST3K was one of Comedy Central’s first hit shows. From 1988 to 1999, the cult series would take terrible B-movies and offer humorous audio commentary or “riffing” as the film would play simultaneously. Three comedians who were involved with the show (Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett) have gone on to form RiffTrax, a comedy website which features downloadable audio commentaries in true MS3K form. The trio also does live shows, one of which, RiffTrax Live: ‘Manos’ The Hands of Fate will be played in movie theaters nationwide on August 16 courtesy of Ncm Fathom Events.
