TYF! #7.2 Top 3 "Holiday Special" with CATHERINE POPPER, KEVIN MAHER, and FRANK CONNIFF
This was on the TYF! podcast, a somewhat more contentious episode of our recurring Top 3 - with Liam and Kevin stretching the definition of "holiday special," and the "Top 3 Steven Spielberg" category proving surprisingly contentious and controversial. The panel includes: FRANK CONNIFF, who is best-loved as "TV's Frank," the mad scientist from the cult TV show 'Mystery Science Theater 3000." He also has a podcast, Podhouse 90, which just released a new episode titled "The Agoraphobic Action League." He will be seen touring the country riffing on bad movies with fellow MST 3k "Mad Scientist" Trace Beaulieu, all of which you can find out about on his website: http://frankconniff.com/ KEVIN MAHER is an Emmy-winning comedy writer, filmmaker, and sketch performer.
