The Mystery Hour began in the original basement theatre of The Skinny Improv as a conspicuously fake TV show. Over five pre-televised seasons, it grew through grassroots word of mouth to become an underground phenomenon.

Now with AN EMMY WIN, 3 Emmy nominations, syndication on multiple FOX networks, and live audiences of 700+ people, The Mystery Hour is in it's fifth season on television. Hosted by "Mystery" Jeff Houghton, the show  features fascinating guests, incredible music, and hilarious comedy sketches. The Mystery Hour is filmed monthly in front of a live studio audience at the historic Gillioz Theatre in downtown Springfield, MO and airs on FOX 5 Saturday nights at 9:00 p.m. and on FOX 14 Saturday nights at midnight.
