NEW HAVEN — If you think watch­ing a bad movie with riff­ing guys and two ro­bots sounds crazy, you need to stay away from Col­lege Street Mu­sic Hall Satur­day, Oct. 13.

But fans of Mys­tery Science The­ater 3000 are ex­cited be­cause the show pro­vided more laughs than most com­edy movies dur­ing its long run on ca­ble TV. And now, it’s not only stream­ing but its sec­ond sea­son of new shows will be­gin on Thanks­giv­ing, three decades af­ter it be­gan.

The group’s 30th An­niver­sary Tour will be live at Col­lege Street Mu­sic Hal fea­tur­ing, for the first time in 25 years, orig­i­nal host/ show cre­ator Joel Hodg­son back in his red jump­suit as Joel Robin­son and riff­ing along­side new MST3K host Jonah He­ston (Jonah Ray).

The tour fea­tures the usual cheesy B-movie, hi­lar­i­ous riff­ing, wise­crack­ing ro­bots, silly sketches, this time with Joel and Jonah com­ment­ing to­gether side-by-side.

The New Haven show fea­tures a screen­ing of and riff­ing on “The Brain,” a Cana­dian science fic­tion sub­ur­ban night­mare.
