The Mads are Back
The Mads Are Back! Live Movie-Riffing with "TV's Frank" Conniff and Trace Beaulieu from Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Join MST3K's Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu at the Carolina Theatre for an evening of fun and laughter as they screen William Castle's The Tingler -- and roast it -- live-and-in-person, in the same style as the Peabody Award-winning TV series. The Mads will riff and will do a Q&A afterwards. Ticket price includes meet and greet event, photos, and autographs. If this show were rated it would probably be PG-13, but keep in mind it is a live show so anything could happen!
