Quick Dish Quarantine: ‘The Mads’ from MST3K Announce The Details of Their April 13th “Night of Shorts 3” Livestream PLUS NEW Short Reveal!
Mystery Science Theater 3000 stars Trace Beaulieu (“Dr. Clayton Forrester”) and Frank Conniff (“TV’s Frank), AKA “The Mads,” this week announced their next livestream, A Night of Shorts 3, happening Tuesday, April 13th. The April show will be the tenth online event The Mads have produced in collaboration with Dumb Industries. Beaulieu and Trace will take the opportunity to riff on an ALL NEW collection of vintage education short films, because it is their duty! Following the shorts, Beaulieu & Conniff will conduct a Q&A for viewers along with a very special guest (to be announced). Previous guests for The Mads’ livestreams have included Bill Corbett (Mystery Science Theater 3000, Rifftrax), Victoria Price (daughter of horror legend Vincent Price), Jonah Ray (host of Mystery Science Theater 3000), Dana Gould (Stan Against Evil), Andy Kindler (Maron, Bob’s Burgers), J. Elvis Weinstein (writer for Mystery Science Theater 3000), Mary Jo Pehl (writer and performer on Mystery Science Theater 3000) and Rich Koz (host of MeTV’s Svengooglie).
Because you should never miss a promotional opportunity AND to coincide with the livestream announcement, The Mads released a NEW short film on their official YouTube channel (an excerpt from their January 2021 livestream, A Night of Shorts 2). The short features Beaulieu and Conniff riffing over the 1949 education Coronet short “How To Keep A Job.” Looks like the eager beaver always get the entire dam.
