ABOUT THE SHOW

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 3 emmy wins, syndication on multiple FOX networks, and live audiences of 700+ people, The Mystery Hour has completed 6 seasons 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.

THE HOST

 

 

Originally from Iowa City, IA. Jeff moved to Springfield, MO in 2003. Shortly thereafter Jeff joined The Skinny Improv Mainstage cast where he performed every weekend to great crowds for several years. It was there that he created The Mystery Hour in 2006.

Jeff has won 3 Emmy Awards. The first came last year for On-Camera Talent - Performer/Host, with 2 more coming this year for Arts and Entertainment Program and Arts and Entertainment Program Featured Segment for Instagram Husband. 

Jeff created and starred in the viral hit, Instagram Husband, which currently has over 25 million views as well as many other digital hits. This year he has created videos for 7-Eleven, Fossil, and Thrivent Financial and been the lead in videos for Bass Pro Shops and Hellman's Mayonnaise.

Jeff is also a writer, actor, and stand up comedian. He worked for the Late Show with David Letterman, appearing in numerous sketches. He has traveled the country, as well as internationally, hosting and performing, while also living in New York and Los Angeles.

 

Additionally, Jeff works as on-air talent for FOX 5 creating humorous news segments and promos. He has performed stand up at the Comedy Store and trained at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. Jeff was named 417 Magazine's Entertainer of the Year, and Springfield Business Journal's 12 People You Need to Know. Awards are nice, but kinda dumb in comparison with his wife Michelle and son Elias.
