Master Pancake: Choose Your Own Pancake

11/20/2016 From 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Master Pancake:
Choose Your Own Pancake
Writers' League of Texas Edition 
Sunday, November 20, 7 pm 
Alamo Drafthouse Ritz 
320 E 6th Street, Austin, TX 78701
Master Pancake is one of the longest-running comedy shows in Austin, with comedians (including WLT friend Owen Egerton) riffing on and spoofing your favorite (or not-so favorite) movie. There will also be a raffle for great Writers' League of Texas prizes!
The Alamo Drafthouse and Master Pancake 
are generously donating a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales to the WLT.

How the Show Works
In this special event, the theme is literature. You, the viewer, get to pick a movie for Master Pancake to mock, and then they'll make up the show right there on the spot! 

If you want to nominate a film, bring a DVD or Blu Ray (sorry, no VHS) of your favorite literary-themed movie to the show, and the Pancake comedians will narrow the field down to their top 10. The top 10 will deliver their pitch and the audience will vote on which of those they want to see mocked, right there on the spot, no rehearsal, no net! They'll create costumes and props out of nothing but duct tape and serving carts. Be prepared to give a short speech in defense of your movie. The audience has final say. It's up to you.

Choose Your Own Pancake is always a fun night, with lots of audience participation and the thrill of seeing a movie mock made up right before your eyes.

Tickets can be purchased at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz website.

The show is intended for mature audiences only.
