"A glorious pairing of movies and comedy." - Entertainment Weekly
"Austin's Best Comedy Troupe." - Austin Chronicle
Master Pancake Theater is the Alamo Drafthouse tradition of pairing questionable movies with live comedy (and beer)! It's smart, fast, and bust-a-gut funny. Voted Best Comedy Troupe seven years in a row by the readers of the Austin Chronicle, 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. Master Pancake "hits" include the TWILIGHT saga, STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, LABYRINTH, THE MATRIX, ROBOCOP, and dozens more. Plus, don't miss their periodic installments of CHOOSE YOUR OWN PANCAKE, where the audience picks the film, and they mock it unrehearsed!
