Slam Team Six – FINAL SHOW!

Imagine: a Saturday morning cartoon gone wrong, where a fantastic foursome of America’s most beloved professional wrestling superstars use their athletic prowess and “powers” outside of the ring to fight crime, help children, and protect the environment. At least they mean to.

Each Saturday in April at 8:30pm, Slam Team Six (professional wrestling heroes Pyschobilly, Prince Craig, Lady Liberty, and Tesla “the Dad Scientist” Maxwell) will take an audience suggestion of a problem threatening the youth and set out to help a child overcome that issue under the watchful eye of their caretaker, Bosworth. Along the way, they will face nefarious plots from villainous evil wrestlers and do their best to resist the temptations that all professional wrestlers face. Will they save the day? Or will the twisted depths of their souls ruin a young boy or girl’s life?

“It’s like the attitude era of the WWF combined with that Saturday morning cartoon show from the 90’s, PRO-STARS, where Bo Jackson, Michael Jordan, and Wayne Gretzky are superstar athletes for their day job, but crime fighting secret government agents in their spare time,” says the show’s producer Cody Dearing.

WARNING: THIS SHOW LIKELY WILL NOT BE SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN

CAST: Jericho Thorp, Joseph Dailey, Mia Iseman, Alex Baia, Sanjay Rao, Michael James Williams, Meredith Mae Roberts, Heidi Noelle, Will Casto, Benjamin G Bazan, and Andrew M. Basile as Referee Sammy Slade.

Oscar Bait! Saturdays in November!

In 1928, Hollywood movie studios created the Academy Awards to bestow trophies on themselves in order to “establish the industry in the public’s mind as a respectable institution.” In other words, The Oscars.

Now, over 80 years later, films tackling social, political, environmental, or cultural issues are dumped by Hollywood studios into the last two months of the year to pander to an organization that they invented for awards that they created in a self-satisfying loop of pleasure seeking in the form of status and reputation.

A king with a stutter. An obese teenager carrying her father’s child. Sandra Bullock teaching a different obese teenager how to play football. These are the over-dramatic, over-acted movies that Hollywood releases in the winter months leading up to award season. In other words, Oscar Bait.

Every Saturday at 8:30 in November, an all star cast of improvisers will take the stage at ColdTowne for an improvised Oscar-caliber performance. The audience will choose a movie that hasn’t yet been released , and – based on the trailer for that film – our cast will perform their artful interpretation of these sure-to-be classics. In other words, Oscar Bait.

Our cast of improvisers have trained at not only Austin’s finest comedy theaters but the finest comedy institutions across the country (iO, Second City, UCB). Their credits include Master Pancake, Stag Comedy, Midnight Society, Stool Pigeon, The Team, and Girls Girls Girls. Watch them craft a completely improvised, live action movie before your very eyes- for you and cinema enthusiasts alike.

We guarantee our versions of these movies will have more stuttering, more obesity and more Sandra Bullock.* In other words, they will be funnier.
