A Comedy Guide to LORD OF THE RINGS and JRR Tolkien

The 20th anniversary of the first of Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" movie is coming up in December. But even the biggest fans of the LOTR movies might not know the vast background of this fictional world. There's a lot to know, honestly an embarrassing amount to know. And that's where two comedy jerks who specialize in embarrassment come in!

Specifically Bill Corbett, actor and writer for the legendary "MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000," and now one of the stars of RiffTrax; and Sean Thomason, writer, producer and sometimes performer at RiffTrax.

RINGHEADS is a detailed guide through the movies and they fictional world they inhabit, done by some aging class clowns who dared each other to get way, way into J.R.R. Tolkien during the 2020 pandemic year. Come join us as we celebrate and mock our own geekiness! ($25, 21+)
