The next Complete Peanuts volume has an introduction unlike any one you have ever seen before. We've had comedians before from Whoopi Goldberg to Patton Oswalt talk about their connection to Schulz, Snoopy and the Gang but never before have we had someone riff on top of a Peanuts comic strip!
The comedians behind Rifftrax, Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy are also known for their work in Mystery Science Theater 3000. Mike was a writer and then host of the show, while Corbett and Murphy wrote and provided the amazing voices for the 'bots, Crow and Tom Servo respectively. They riff on four Peanuts strips in the upcoming The Complete Peanuts Vol. 23 (1995-1996).
But don't worry, there's also a fantastic words-only introduction written by two of their newer Rifftrax writers, Sean Thomason and Conor Lastowka. Like the kind that makes you laugh 'til you cry. And for anyone attending the Rifftrax LIVE show tonight in Nashville and streaming into theaters across the United States, Fantagraphics a little preview of the riffed comics just for the audience as part of downloadable digital goodies! There's still time to get a time to get a ticket for tonight, check your local theaters here to see who is showing Rifftrax: Santa Claus . And you've got plenty of time to preorder The Complete Peanuts Vol. 23 (1995-1996).
