Final Christmas at the Tush Whitehouse

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 11/30/2008

It's the final Christmas at the Tush Whitehouse.  Dubya's mother, Babs, gets to work rallying relatives to appropriate all the furnishings before the new first family moves in, while Prick Cheney works Dubya overtime in signing over everything to their corporate allies. It's the final chapter in the Ubu Hour's hilarous but tragic look at the Tush Administration. Everyone has been asking us, what is the Ubu Hour going to do, now that we don't have these clowns to make fun of anymore.

Ubu Hour

Sun, 11/30/2008

Santa Claus Is Coming, Part 2 of the Ubu Hour's 2008 Xmas Special. What can we say? Rudolf is drunk and puking, Santa is a mean old grump who whips his reindeer too hard, Homeland Security stops him for flying over American air space, and Jesus even makes an appearance in this irreverent, profanity-laced Christmas story that ends with Santa hanging out with a bunch of ho ho hos.  WARNING: This radio theater peice contains sex, violence, vomiting and other material that may be objectional to some listeners.
