Joel, Frank & Trace at DragonCon This Weekend

This weekend Joel, Frank and Trace will all be appearing at DragonCon in Atlanta. One highlight will be clearly be Friday Night’s “MST3K NIGHT II: YE MEDIEVAL BOOGALOO.” Our buddy Daniel Griffith will have “exclusive footage.”

As has been the case at previous Dragon Cons, our pal Ken Plume will host many of the guys’ appearances. They include:

Friday, 8:30 p.m. “FRED Presents Attack of the Celebrity Improv. A fast, furious game of improvised comedy. Like The Hunger Games with more laughs and fewer arrows.” Trace and Frank will both take part.

Saturday, 2:30 p.m. Joel will present “Riffing Myself.”

Saturday, 8:30 p.m. Trace will be among the players in “Gonzo Quiz Show V: The Quizening.”

Sunday, 11:30 a.m. “MST3K: Reel Crime Court is in session as MST3K’s own defend their cinematic guilty pleasures.” All three guys are scheduled to take part.

Sunday, 4 p.m. “Comedy Writing. A discussion about the art of writing comedy, with those who have done so professionally.” Trace and Frank will be on the panel.

Sunday, 8:30 p.m. “Frank and Joel will participate in Gonzo Quiz Show VI: Quizopolis.”

Monday, 10 a.m. “You Know More Than We Do. A Mystery Science Theater 3000 trivia game where no answer is too obscure or accurate and you’ll be the judge.” Trace and Frank are schedule to participate.

And of course all three will be available at various times to sign autographs.

If you’re going, we’d love to get photos, videos and reports!

    Is there like a “thing” that makes these sort of events feature EITHER only CT people OR only RT people?

    Just the threat of gang wars involving be-jumpsuited dorks bashing each other over their heads with homemade bot puppets.

    I think if they have both CT and RT people, they start fighting like ninjas.

    Or probably scheduling. CT is kaput, but I imagine the RT guys are always busy or free on the same days.

    Jeremy’s explanation is probably the closest to the truth.

    (The ninja thing, clearly, not that scheduling nonsense. Science disproved scheduling years ago, alongside phrenology and alchemy.)

    Report on Reddit:http://www.reddit.com/r/MST3K/comments/2ez5qa/from_mst3k_panel_at_dragoncon/

    Joel, Trace and Frank “theoretically” working on new MST3K.

    Anyone have a more thorough report?

    Tarlcabot #9,

    Frank and I are NOT working on a new MST3K. WE are not involved in any way at this point. Just to be clear.
