The Nerds vs. Joel Hodgson Pt 2:Riffing Myself/Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

****NOTE: The Nerd Herd will be holding its annual Holiday Party the same night at 6:00pm. Therefore, I will not be posting a Molly's meetup this time around. If you are interested in food/drinks prior to this event, I encourage you to attend the party, and then travel just a few miles north for Joel. This is the second half of his presentation that began on October 19th (How to Have a Job Like Mine). It will be followed up with a showing of MST3K: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.****

Joel Hodgson: Riffing Myself
Tickets: $11 - $15. Buy tickets online. 140 min.

Sat, Dec 22, 8:00 pm
Joel Hodgson, creator of the enduring cult hit Mystery Science Theater 3000 will present his one-man keynote address entitled “Riffing Myself” on Sat, Dec 22 at 8PM followed by an MST3K episode of Joel’s choosing, “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.” More»

Joel will survey his lifelong endeavors to entertain people in new and inventive ways, and how those efforts, along with a host of diverse influences, led to the invention of the comedic art form of movie riffing. The presentation will also feature photos, videos, documents and notebook pages from Joel’s personal collection, illustrating some rarely seen projects and the creative process that helps brings them to fruition. A question and answer session will follow. After the presentation there will be a brief intermission followed by a screening of one of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.

Adults: $15
Seniors & Students: $13
Members: $11

    Good to see Erich and Spencer last night, and also met Randy, Pete, and Jason. Turnout was pretty high, so I apologize if I missed anyone. Got to shake hands with Joel and get my DVD set autographed. Good times!

    For those looking for the group, I'll be wearing a green Star Wars t-shirt. As you enter the theater, walk toward the stage and look over to your left.

    If I attend, this will be my first Meet Up with the group. How will I recognize it or be recognized?

      We usually sit around the same place in the theater for each event. Walking down the center aisle toward the stage, we tend to congregate on the left side, about 1/3 of the way in. One of these days, I'll actually remember to make note of the row numbers there. As we get closer to the event, I'll post what I'll be wearing, so that I can be identified.

    Note: When this event was announced, I accidentally set the start time for 9:30. It actually begins at 8:00pm. I apologize for the error.
