If you’ve ever wondered what a live-action TOY STORY would look like if all of the toys were replaced by sun-damaged G.I. Joes, look no further than PREDATOR. Known internationally as MUSCLES: THE MOVIE, PREDATOR is about a group of sweaty men and their quest to defeat a giant alien lizard monkey, before it defeats them. And who better to make fun of this movie than a couple of guys who know a thing or two about being sweaty and terrified – Mac and David!
Mac and David are back together with Master Pancake Theater to take on PREDATOR, one of the most bullet-heavy movies of the 80s. Starring former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, former governor Jesse “The Body” Ventura, and a whole host of future former governors, this movie is sure to answer the question: Holloywood’s cocaine problem in the 80s resulted in a lot of terrible decisions, right?
Master Pancake (with Mac and David) will be mocking PREDATOR Fridays and Saturdays, September 19th through October 11th. You can buy tickets here for each weekend’s shows as they’re made available. Stop pushing pencils and GET TO THE CHOPPER! (Assuming a chopper is where you keep your computer and credit card, for purchasing movie tickets online.)
BATMAN FOREVER is terrible. Like, “mutter to yourself about it in the car on the drive home” terrible. But, chances are, you still think about it, probably after watching one of the Christopher Nolan Batman movies. Surely BATMAN FOREVER isn’t that bad, you’ve probably said to yourself. Maybe I’ll watch it one more time, just to be sure. Well, if you’re going to watch BATMAN FOREVER for what we guarantee will be the last time, at least let it be with us.
Mac and David are joining forces with Master Pancake Theater once again, this time to take down this menace to Gotham. Not only have we cut out about 30 minutes, but we’ll be making jokes over what’s left, for what truly is the best possible way to see this movie. It still looks like a drag queen’s funeral, though, but there’s not much we can do about that.
Master Pancake (with Mac and David) will be mocking BATMAN FOREVER Fridays and Saturdays, March 28th through April 19th. You can buy tickets here for each weekend’s shows as they’re made available. The first weekend of shows have already sold quickly, so make sure you don’t miss out on this really fun show.
Independence from Annihilation? That doesn’t make sense does it. Blame Bill Pullman’s character President Jetfighter from the movie Independence Day. Hey, speaking of, did you know that Mac and David are once again teaming up with Master Pancake Theater‘s John Erler to verbally death-ray the 1996 big budget b-movie? Now you do. These shows are running this week only (true). Free admission with a powdered wig (not true). The first showing is Wednesday the 3rd, and all shows are the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz, except a special Sunday show at the Alamo Village. Tickets and showtimes here.
First, the bad news: There will be no Mascot Wedding radio show this weekend.
Now, the good news: You’ll still have opportunities to spend time with Mac and David this Saturday… and Monday??
This Saturday is the final night of Mac and David sitting in with Master Pancake for its run of ROAD HOUSE shows at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz. If you haven’t seen this show yet, hoo boy, you’re missing out on a very fun show. This movie has everything – oily men, feathered mullets, and rock-hard 80s boobs. And then you’re gonna throw Master Pancake’s quality mocking skills on top of that? Brother, how can that lose? Two shows Saturday at 7pm and 10pm. Tickets available here.
And then, this coming Monday, Mac and David are back together with Master Pancake for a very special secret show at the Alamo Drafthouse Village. How secret? So secret that we can’t even tell you what it is! All we can tell you is that it features child stars, a powerful glove, and all 97 games. One night only, one showing only – Monday at 7pm at Alamo Village – and only three bucks! Plus, special guest mocker David McQuary! Tickets on sale here.
Do you hear that? The sound of a man’s throat being ripped out in the moonlight waters of Missouri? That’s ROAD HOUSE, baby. Mascot Wedding is once again joining up with Master Pancake Theater to mock the Patrick Swayze classic, Road House. Road House is the story of Dalton (Swayze), the best damn Cooler in the business. If you don’t know what a Cooler is, it’s middle management at a bar. But when Dalton accepts the job of cleaning up shitty blues-rock bar, the Double Deuce, will he — fucking who gives a shit — it’s Road House, man! It’s a logic-defying, late 80s, action movie destined to run on cable TV long after our deaths.
Our first shows were actually last weekend (wewps), but you’ll have plenty more chances to catch John Erler, David, and Mac make fun of one of the most awfulsome movies ever.
Bad news though, there will be no MWS this Saturday due to Road Housin’.
Five years ago Mascot Wedding had its first collaboration with Master Pancake Theater. Over 100 shows later, John Erler, Joe Parsons, David, and Mac have reteamed to make fun of the sword and sorcery sex-epic that started it all, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1982 Conan the Barbarian. All of last week’s shows sold the eff out, so buying your tickets early is a really smart idea. Two shows Friday, two Saturday and that’s it.
As for the show itself? C’mon, it’s Ahnuldt chopping up, sleeping with, and yelling at everything that crosses his path. Seriously, this movie has like 9 beheadings, 4 sex scenes, and one future governor. It’s great! The only downside is that there will not be a Mascot Wedding Show on KOOP this Saturday.
Mascot Wedding is doing a lot of different live shows this month, 14 I believe, at various Austin venues and we recorded a micro-podcast to talk about it.
Do not forget, this is TONIGHT:

FREE show.
++Dec 18: Stag Comedy @ Salvage Vanguard Theater. Did you miss Stag Comedy’s last sold-out performance at the Alamo Ritz?

Now’s your chance as Stag Comedy will be doing an encore performance of Episode 3 at SVT @ 5 PM. Tickets aren’t available yet, but when they are, expect a post here, on our Facebook page, and also probably on David’s twitter. The dude tweets.
