The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Live! - Watch Out for Snakes! Tour is the first live touring show based on Mystery Science Theater 3000. It kicked off on July 6, 2017 in Boston.
At every stop, the film Eegah (previously riffed in episode 506) will be riffed, with all new sketches and riffs. It is the famous line "Watch out for snakes." from this film that the tour takes its name.
At many of the stops, a second, as-yet unnamed film will be riffed. This is a film that has not been riffed before.
History of MST3K Live
The first live MST3K show of any kind was Mystery Science Theatre Live!!, a stand-up comedy review with Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu and Josh Weinstein all performing. The original pilot was shown and props from the show were on display.
On July 10, 1992, Mystery Science Theater Alive! was presented, riffing the film World Without End. This was a full-blown live production of the show with the cast appearing in-character. It was done as an experiment to test the waters for a live tour.
