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 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.

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 just won an Emmy for On-Camera Talent - Performer/Host. In addition to hosting, Jeff is also a writer, actor, and stand up comedian. He worked for the Late Show with David Letterman, appearing in numerous nationally televised sketches. He can also be seen in various regional and national commercials, and starred in the viral hit, "Missouri is Awesome." Jeff works as on air talent for FOX 5 as well as a freelance writer for 417 Magazine, among others. He has performed stand up at the Comedy Store, has worked with Funny or Die, 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 as well as 40 Under 40. Awards are nice, but kinda dumb in comparison with his wife Michelle and son Elias.
