Chris and Timm Waffle triumphantly return to MarsCon,
ready to do two things, (1) blow you away with a comedy rock spectacle
the likes of which has never been seen, and (2) consume mass
quantities on the 13th floor afterwards. They've appeared on EXTRA and
G4's Attack of the Show, and have performed at the Improv, the Ice
House, the Carpenter Performing Arts Center, and the Orange County
Comedy Festival. They've also performed with Dr. Demento, and who can
forget their performance of "The Yolk's On You" at the MarsCon 2006
Dementia Smackdown? So get ready for a rockin' musical breakfast of
Hot Waffles at MarsCon 2008!

being a proud new daddy to whip up a cheesy website like this.)
Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.
