The Gentlemen Hecklers Present Street Fighter at the Rio Theatre
Come see folks who wrote jokes for Mystery Science Theater 3000 provide live, hilarious commentary for the best bad movies!
On Wednesday, July 11, Vancouver’s favourite movie riffers The Gentlemen Hecklers (comedians Eric Fell, Patrick Maliha – and special guest riffer Gina Harms) are set to crack wise at the 1994 Jean Claude van Damme classic STREET FIGHTER.
Based on the hit video game series, STREET FIGHTER also stars Raul Julia, Kylie Minogue, and Ming-Na Wen in a globe-spanning epic which the IMDB describes as, “Col. Guile and various other martial arts heroes fight against the tyranny of Dictator M. Bison and his cohorts” (but star Ming-Na Wen describes as “a good movie if you’re drunk!”).
