“Summer. Summer, summer, summer, summer,” as The Cars famously sang. What they were really saying is, “Summer. It’s the time for a RiffTrax Live: Summer Shorts Beach Party!”

Yes, put on your shorts and come out and see Mike, Kevin and Bill taking on some of their favorite short films - a selection of hilarious, skewed and sometimes downright bizarre educational shorts.

And because it’s never a party without guests, the guys will be joined by RiffTrax’s own duo of Bridget Jones (MST’s beloved Mister B Natural) and Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester). And to ensure the party gets a little mad, we’ve got The Mads themselves: Trace Beaulieu and “TV’s” Frank Conniff!

We've also got Mr. Paul F. Tompkins!

Slap on some SPF 30 and join Mike, Bill and Kevin for the RiffTrax Live: Summer Shorts Beach Party! Includes shorts The Baggs, Ricky Racoon Shows the Way, and The Griper.
