Nelson, Kevin Murphy (MST3K’s Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (MST3K’s Crow T.

Some more highlights:
Presented by NCM Fathom and The Onion, RiffTrax LIVE: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza! will include a special guest appearance by “Weird Al” Yankovic joining the holiday riffing festivities. Yankovic has sold more than 12 million albums – more than any other comedy act in history – and recorded more than 150 parody and original songs, including “Eat It,” “Smells Like Nirvana,” “Amish Paradise” and the viral video phenomenon “White & Nerdy” from his most recently released album, “Straight Outta Lynwood.”
"I can't think of a better way to honor the true meaning of Christmas than by making stupid jokes over ridiculous film shorts," said Yankovic.
RiffTrax LIVE: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza! attendees will receive an early holiday present from the RiffTrax team – a URL and code will be revealed at the end of the event for five free digital goodies: a RiffTones holiday song, two downloadable shorts, an autographed digital photo of Mike, Kevin and Bill and a Christmas desktop wallpaper.
"Sometimes good things come in small packages - these shorts are amazing and hilarious - not to mention festive,” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host and writer of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning MST3K.
So go support some local guys made good and get in the spirit of Xmas Pork!
