Kernels of Comedy: MST3K Plus Pizza Dogs Equals Tonight's Popcorn Pals



Did you miss the RiffTrax Live skewering of Starship Troopers at The Belcourt earlier this month? Are tickets to their next target, a Halloween-themed riff on Night of the Living Dead — on sale 10 a.m. Friday for $39.95 — a little too rich for your blood?

Corporate Juggernaut, the amorphous comedy group that has been creating and booking shows across town for a couple years now, has a discount solution to that particular first-world problem: a comedy movie night called “Popcorn Pals.”

Hosted by local comics Sean Parrott and Brad Edwards, Popcorn Pals pokes fun at goofy movies in the spirit of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Doug Benson’s Movie Interruption, except with the added benefit of pizza dogs — a thing that is really sold at The East Room. Corporate Juggernaut founder Gary Fletcher joins the duo for their inaugural production, a film that combines tae kwon do with upbeat synth rock jams. You’ll have to buy a ticket to see the connection.

The show's tonight at 8 p.m. at The East Room, 2412 Gallatin Rd. Tickets are $5. Oh, and Popcorn Pals is in no way associated with the videos below:
