Back in the 1990s, before people watched teens play video games on Twitch for hours at a time every week, people watched a dude and his three robot frenemies ruthlessly mock B movies on Joel Hodgson's Mystery Science Theater 3000 television program. The show was full of slacker humor and dumb jokes, but no matter what, you could always walk away with a memorable snarky line. (To this day, I shout "I regret nothing" when speeding through yellow lights.) Now Hodgson is taking his show on its first national tour. Each night, the new host (comedian Jonah Heston) and the same robots will hurl slights at different features. First, they'll tackle the deliciously bad caveman movie Eegah!; the second show is a mystery surprise. Watch out for snakes. RICH SMITH
