"A glorious pairing of movies and comedy" - Entertainment Weekly

"Master Pancake is the beating heart of Austin, freshly plucked by an evil Cali-worshiping priest. And then set on fire. Must see." - WindAddict (Twitter user)

"Austin's Best Comedy Troupe" - Austin Chronicle

Master Pancake Theater is part of the Alamo tradition of pairing bad movies with live comedy (and beer)! It's smart, fast, and bust-a-gut funny. Voted BEST COMEDY TROUPE the last four years by the readers of the Austin Chronicle (2008-2011), Master Pancake features slacker wise-cracker John Erler and a rotating band of Austin's funniest comics going up against the worst that Hollywood has to offer. Be warned, the show is definitely for adults only!

Master Pancake lampoons BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985), a film so iconic that for a brief period in the mid-80’s it convinced people that De Loreans, down vests, and Huey Lewis were cool.  Michael J. Fox (FAMILY TIES, TEEN WOLF) stars as Michael J. Fox -- or Marty McFly as he’s called here -- who travels back in time in order to save his professorial pal “Doc”, played by Christopher Lloyd (TAXI, STAR TREK III).  Along the way, McFox ends up inventing rock‘n’roll, changing history, and almost dating his own mom.  You’ll have 1.21 jigowatts of fun at this Oedipally complex movie, as Master Pancake riffs on BACK TO THE FUTURE!  (John)
