You may remember way back in Knee-Jerk Issue One (we were so young, so innocent, so very innocent), we featured an interview with Mystery Science Theater 3000 alumn, Frank Conniff in which we asked him about his current project with fellow original MST3K writers and performers, Cinematic Titanic. Well Frank and the crew of MST3K creator, Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein, and Mary Jo Pehl made their way to the Windy City in early September, 2009 for a run of five performances to present three films (East Meets Watts, The Alien Factor, and Danger on Tiki Island) at the now sadly defunct Lakeshore Theater. After an evening filled with hilarious shadowy riffing, Chicago specific jokes, audience Q&A, songs, autograph signing, and Dave “Gruber” Allen, Frank sat down with Knee-Jerk for a quick chat. You’ll have to forgive some strike crew background noise, the dark quality of the film (hey, you could see him even less when he was on stage most of the show) along with my Seth Rogan laugh throughout (you’ll hear what I mean). Or, hey, feel free to make a drinking game out of them. Either way, we’re proud to finally post the “lost” Frank Conniff interview. Enjoy!
