Putting pancake and gut-buster in the same sentence normally means having a breakfast binge at the Original House of Pancakes, but for QuakeCon regulars, it’s a night of uncontrollable laughter. This year, whether you’re a QuakeCon newb or grizzled veteran, don’t miss out on Master Pancake Theater’s performance of Twilight – Friday night at 9:oo pm!
Whether your Team Edward, Team Jacob, or Team No Thanks, we assure you it’ll be hilarious. Until then, here’s an interview with two-thirds of your evening entertainment, John Erler and Ben Bartley.
How’d you guys meet?
BEN: I met Joe in 2000 at a ComedySportz Austin audition. I met John in 2002 at the Sinus Show where I filmed the shows. Our first Master Pancake show together was Breakfast Club in 2007. I have been in love with them ever since.
JOHN: I still haven’t met the other guys in the group. We normally just assemble a second before the movie starts playing. Then when it’s over we disappear silently into the night.
QuakeCon’s BYOC has always been a great experience for PC players, but this year we’re offering the best of both worlds. In three feet of allotted table space, you’ll be able to bring either a PC or gaming console (plus one standalone monitor).
This year’s BYOC will be better than ever thanks AT&T’s participation in the event. With more bandwidth than ever streaming and networked gameplay will be better than ever. For more details, check out the press release below…
