Episode 231A: Sorry for the delay. At the same time David was recording the last (posted) episode at the KOOP studios, Mac was recording a live Out of Bounds edition MWS podcast at ColdTowne Theater. Here is that bizarro, “earth 2″ Episode 231, or – based on common alternate reality naming conventions – Episode 213A. Mac and special guest co-host Lance Gilstrap welcome Jeff Griggs, Jeannie Cahill, and Brett Lyons from the awesome improv group Aphasia. Cruise ship stories, Mothman Prophecies, Mac’s rent-a-cop days, and more.
This Friday at ColdTowne Theater, Mascot Wedding will be taking part in two different shows. Up first, MW’s sketch comedy team Stag Comedy will be opening for Midnight Society, as part of their new sketch show, Midnight Society Presents: Halloween Spooktacular IV: Midnight Gallery. Stag will be performing three brand new spooky sketches. Two killer groups on the same bill? Of course it’s gonna sell out. Doors at 8, show at 8:30. Tickets here.
Then later that night comes the Cage Match! David, Ximena, and myself will join up with Annette Cantu, Kate Bojanek, and Midnight Society’s Lance Gilstrap to form The Box Social, an improvised dating game loosely based on the 90s TV fiasco Studs. Show at 11:30. Tickets here.
Are you still kicking yourself for missing the last STAG! Comedy show? Are you looking for something fun to start your Memorial Day weekend? Are you a sucker for killing two birds with one stone? Well, have I got some news for you!
STAG! Comedy (featuring Mascot Wedding, as well as members of Master Pancake Theater and Comedy Sportz) will be performing Thursday, May 27th, as a part of Austin Sketch Fest. Curated by Lance Gilstrap (also a Master Pancake alum and member of the very funny Midnight Society), Austin Sketch Fest is a three day showcase of some great comedy featuring local and national sketch groups. Shows will take place at Coldtowne Theater, with additional shows taking place Saturday night at the United States Art Authority. This will be our first time performing at Coldtowne, so we’re really looking forward to the opportunity to put on a fun show at a great local venue.

Seating at Coldtowne Theater is very limited, so get your tickets while you can. And, if you can’t make it out to support STAG!, at least consider checking out the rest of Austin Sketch Fest. It’s a very cool event and Lance has been busting his ass to put it together.
