v. in comedy: when a stand-up comic starts strong and engages the crowd well but ends weakly and has lost the audience.
Term made popular by Mitch Hedberg.
"Pancakes are great when you start eating them, but by the time you get to the end your totally sick of them. That's why pancaking is a going to be a new comedy term, because some comics start off great. By the time their ending their act, though, you're sick of them. 'Hey, look at Mitch up there! He's totally pancaking!'"
