Andrea Lipinski sits down with Bill Corbett of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax to discuss the latter's upcoming live performance of a riff on the classic Ed Wood film, Plan 9 from Outer Space.  Plus, we take a listen to our feedback line.  Make sure you rate the episode at the bottom of the page and comment on it here.



Bill Corbett is a former writer for the cult TV show MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. He was also a performer on the show, providing the voice and puppetry for the robot Crow (v. 2.0); as well as playing the all-powerful but clueless alien The Observer (a.k.a. "Brain Guy") and occasional other strange characters. He’s now a principal writer and performer for the comedy website Rifftrax.com. Corbett is also a screenwriter and playwright. His screenplay STARSHIP DAVE, co-written with Rob Greenberg, was made into the Eddie Murphy movie MEET DAVE in 2008. His play THE BIG SLAM has been produced at numerous theaters across the U.S., including Woolly Mammoth in Washington, D.C.; ACT in Seattle; and actor Jeff Daniels' Purple Rose Theater in Chelsea, Michigan. His play HATE MAIL, co-written with Kira Obolensky, was produced at Primary Stages in NYC and dozens of theaters since. He has been a contributing writer to National Public Radio's PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION and ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, and is co-creator of the animated web series POKER NIGHT on Icebox.com. Corbett has also been an actor in the resident acting companies at the Guthrie Theater and the Berkshire Theater Festival, and has taught playwriting and screenwriting at Kenyon College in Ohio, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, the Playwrights’ Center, and many other universities and schools. He's a graduate of the Yale School of Drama, where he earned an MFA in playwriting and screenwriting. Before that, he received a BA from Yale College. A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Corbett lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota with his wife Virginia and two children.
