Joel is best known for creating the Peabody award-winning movie riffing series Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K). He was also the host of the series for the first 100 episodes. Recently, MST3K has been included in several “top 100 TV shows of all time” lists, including Entertainment Weekly and Time Magazine, as well as being included in the “top 25 cult shows” list in TV Guide.

Joel started out in show business as a stand-up comedian and appeared on HBO’s Young Comedians Special, as well as The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS, and NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Joel also had several appearances on the beloved Freaks and Geeks TV series on NBC, and currently voices “Mayor Dewey” on Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe. Joel recently completed six years of touring  in Cinematic Titanic, a live riffing stage show similar to MST3K featuring several alumni from the program.

Joel was recently featured in a story on Wired.com. It not only includes a candid look at Joel’s history with MST3K, it also reveals that he has hopes of reviving the program in a new online format!

Joel will be at the show on *SATURDAY ONLY*. He will be available for signing and pictures, and will also be holding a Q&A panel for fans of his work to watch and participate in. We look forward to seeing him at the show! Join us!!
