Rifftrax gets ready for the season with Summer Beach Party Shorts!

For those who don't know, Rifftrax is the project MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER alumni Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett took on after the cancellation of their other movie-riffing show. Since then, they have had many live events, and their newest one is titled SUMMER BEACH PARTY SHORTS, where they take the piss out of bad educational shorts. The normal crew will be joined by TV's Frank Conniff, former Mads Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Perl, Mike's wife Bridget Nelson, as well as comedian Paul F. Tompkins.

Meanwhile, our own Eric Walkuski talked to the Rifftrax hosts about their favorite summer films (which ranged from PRIVATE RESORT, LIFEGUARD, and JAWS), the shorts they picked for the upcoming show (which includes "a safety short featuring the weirdest animal mascot in the history of weird animal mascots" and "dorky teens in Iowa"), and more! You can read the whole interview HERE.

So any of you Schmoes going to the show?

Either way, RIFFTRAX LIVE: SUMMER BEACH PARTY SHORTS will premiere in select theaters tonight, and will have an encore showing June 20th.

Extra Tidbit: I really enjoyed the new season MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 on Netflix. What was everyone else's take?
