Loose Cannon Comedy is a group of Pittsburgh-based comedians with a drunken (but healthy) pop culture obsession. Their flagship show Sequelitis parodies the rampant mishandling of modern-day movie sequels by Hollywood hacks.
Episode 20 - 28 Days Later
We just woke up buck naked from a lengthy coma and, man... the world is different. In this episode, the Sequelitis crew crafts a follow-up to Danny Boyle's 2002 in-no-way-relevant-to-today zombie flick "28 Days Later." And if you think we can't create a post-apocalyptic thriller featuring Dora the Explorer characters, you obviously haven't listened to this show.
Stick around till the end of the episode to hear John Gleason pitch a wonderful "28 Days Later" Broadway play. It's delightful.
Episode 19 - The Witch
This week, we're talking about a film that's mostly about social distancing. That's right— we created a sequel to 2015's slow-burn horror hit, The Witch! Ahem... excuse me, I mean "The VVitch".
And this wouldn't be a true New England Folktale without the man of 1000 New England accents himself, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who (in a shocking Plot Device development) voices all of our characters. So hey, it's a weird one. Live deliciously and tune in!
Episode 18 - The Fifth Element
In this classy episode of Sequelitis, we create a porn parody of 1997's weirdo Euro-sci-fi space opera, The Fifth Element. We're not proud of it. But it's a darn good porn parody. So... uh... we'll just leave it at that.
Episode 17 - Office Space
Looks like we've been missing a lot of work lately. And you know what— we HAVE been missing it, Bob! We're back in the Sequelitis Writers Room with a fresh take on Mike Judge's 1999 workplace masterwork, Office Space. And wouldn't you know it— the one time co-host Anne isn't with us— Mike, Adam and Malenock pull the gender-swap card and have to create an all-female Office Space sequel, which somehow STILL ends up starring famous male actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. So tune in to hear three dudes mansplain a movie out of thin air!
Episode 16 - Hereditary
It’s Halloween! What better way to celebrate than with a topical discussion of the hottest horror movie of last year— Hereditary. Adam, Mike, Jon and Anne admittedly gush for a while over the film until its pivotal character’s name is mispronounced in a hilarious way and then they fly off the rails. Not to spoil anything (after all, Hereditary can be easily ruined with spoilers), but Sean Connery is in this episode a lot.
Give this a listen on the spookiest of days and remember, as the old saying goes, don’t let your mom saw her own head off while levitating in the attic over the corpse of her mother while two naked old strangers watch.
**weird clicking tongue noise thing**
Episode 15 - Inglourious Basterds
It’s the 10th anniversary of the 6th film by Quentin Tarantino and 3 boys gather ‘round a table at StudioME to sequelize what might be Tarantino’s masterpiece. Such a feat may seem to be impossible until the Plot Device suggests a low budget rip-off of the revisionist World War II epic...
...but then it makes us “add the Joker” and all hell breaks loose. Adam’s frustrations with Mike flare while Jonny tries to keep the peace. By the end, they make something at least 3 people would definitely watch, and THAT’S a Bingo.
As someone who is definitely not a host of this podcast or affiliated with it in any way, I can honestly say that this is an incredibly compelling podcast dedicated to the idiocy of modern movie economics. The folks involved know their stuff and it shows.
Like us! I mean them. Like them.
Really really fun
This podcast is a lot of fun. I think all of the guys on the show work really well together and have a fun energy to them.
I definitely recommend listening to the show.
