It’s almost not fair to give LARRY LEE MONIZ, the “fan of the week” award–since MR. LOBO considers Larry a trusted friend and collaborator…but his fellow CInsomniacs have spoken and by popular vote, he is our Sleepless Knight of the Week!
From his home in Fremont, CA this lover of misunderstood movies watched CINEMA INSOMNIA on KTEH PBS 54 from 2005-2008 and attended countless live shows hosted by Mr. Lobo. He routinely visited conventions where his movie host was a special guest. Larry stood out from the typical fan with his humor and creativity. He was usually dressed as “Joel” from Mystery Science Theater 3000 with his amazing home built Tom Servo robot.
He also did an uncanny impression and Mr. Lobo invited Larry to come on the 10th Anniversary season premiere of CINEMA INSOMNIA: ED’ WOOD’S VENUS FLYTRAP(1970) with his puppet and perform as “Larry Servo” in a spoof of MST3K.
Larry, an accomplished designer and artist, has impressed us with talents many times over the years–one of a kind Mr. Lobo greeting cards, wrapping paper–he even created original music for our 2013 Halloween Special.
Who will be Fan of the Week next Friday? Will it be you?
