the Martians,” a beloved classic from the days of Mystery
Science Theater 3000
– completely reworked by RiffTrax for the 2013
broadcast. In the second feature, “Rifftrax Live: Christmas
Shorts-straveganza,” the guys take you all the way back to 2009, when
they were joined by multiple Grammy Award-winning comedy legend “Weird
Al” Yankovic for a night of Christmas shorts. Plus, a special
gift to fans, audiences will see the most-requested bonus short, Parade
of Aquatic Champions
, and Michael, Kevin and Bill riffing on
hilarious fan-submitted holiday family photos. Presented by Fathom

“Come on, we know you don’t like roasted chestnuts —
nobody does, they’re gross — so why not make our RiffTrax Holiday
Double Feature your new Christmas tradition? Santa Claus
Conquers the Martians
, and a Christmas Shorts-stravaganza, plus
all new riffing on yours and our Christmas photos is just
what the Santa ordered,” Michael J. Nelson of RiffTrax said.

Originally broadcast in 2013, “Santa Claus Conquers the Martians,”
riffed by the RiffTrax crew, helps ring in the Christmas season. The
(only slightly fictional) story follows an evil Martian who comes to
earth to capture Santa Claus and take him back to Mars. “RiffTrax Live:
Christmas Shorts-straveganza” originally broadcast in 2009, wraps
up this holiday’s double feature with tales that range from the bizarre
to the sublime, and features the bonus commentary of Weird Al. For those
still in a summer mood, there’s the special bonus short Parade of
Aquatic Champions
– the most popular and requested RiffTrax short
ever.

“The RiffTrax crew always delivers literal laugh-out-loud content that
has audiences coming back event after event, and their Holiday Special
Double Feature is certain to make this the funniest time of year,”
Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said.

“RiffTrax: Holiday Special Double Feature” is the 23rd
RiffTrax title for Fathom Events since the 2009 start of the companies’
partnership. Some of the most popular titles in the RiffTrax Live lineup
include “Anaconda,” “Starship Troopers,” “Night of the Living Dead,” and
the “MST3K Reunion Show.”

interviews.
