Nate has puppeteered for film, TV, and stage. He has worked alongside and trained with colleagues from The Jim Henson CompanySesame Street, Universal Studios and The Walt Disney Company, where he was an opening cast member in Walt Disney World’s new Muppet Show.  For his voice work, in addition to the many commercials, video games, children’s shows and audiobooks, he can currently be heard as the promo voice and announcer for The Wendy Williams and Jerry O Shows! Nate is on record as saying, how much “MST3K is very much a part of who I am as a person and performer. It informed my sense of humor, and fed into my love of movies, comedy AND puppetry!”


Yvonne Freese is ecstatic to be hitting the road again as Mega Synthia and sweet one-eyed purple GPC! Yvonne grew up on a dairy farm outside of Lanesboro, MN where her love of performing outgrew the audience of her animals, which eventually landed her here in front of your very eyes. During the past year, she had the honor of joining the writing team of MST3K along with her multi-talented cast-mates. When not on tour, Yvonne resides in Minneapolis where she has performed with a number of regional houses including; Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, Pillsbury House, Stage’s Children’s Theater, Really Spicy Opera Co, Open Eye Theater, Science Museum of MN and Teatro del Pueblo. Thank you to the vast MST3K family for simply being the best! Welcome to the Time Bubble!

Conor McGiffin is fulfilling a childhood dream to be a part of this hilarious show as Tom Servo. This time around, the cast was invited to write on the Time Bubble Tour, which has been an unbelievable privilege and a taste of power that he will never let go. His most recent productions include Guys and Dolls (Clear Space Productions), Finding Neverland (National Tour), A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder (National Tour), Hairspray (Argyle Theatre), and Jekyll & Hyde (National Tour). When he is not touring, he can be found teaching master classes of musical theatre in his hometown of Dover, DE. He’d like to thank his family for introducing him to MST3K and for being the most wonderful people in the world.
