Welcome to Violence
      
People have often complained that the Ubu Hour wallows in far too much sex and violence. On tonight's show, WELCOME TO VIOLENCE, we give you a solid hour of mostly violence, with a little bit of sex thrown in. How is this any different than other Ubu shows? We've done away with such minor contriviences like dialog, plot, and characters.. to bring you a show packed solid with violence and sex. Gun battles, fist fights, car chases, explosions.. Think of it as a cake that's all frosting with just bits of crumbs of cake in this hour-long mashup of scenes of violence and sex taken from movies.

August Ubu Hour

It's a variety-packed Ubu Hour for August, as we present some short politcal peices, a couple short movie mashups, and some surreal stuff as well...  including:

Bicycle Peice #7.. where Roy and Viv Ubu are desperite for ideas for scripts, and their main script writer is out riding a bike and stalking women.

Another Dead Baby Joke... Yes, it's yet another dead baby joke. Some might think the Ubu Hour is obsessed with dead babies, but it's not us! It's these various state legislators who are obsessed with dead babies, and what they are doing is not a very funny joke.

And also some stuff about the Zimmerman verdict, freedom, different kinds of fences, and more...

CITIZEN KOCH

Tonight Ubu presents CITIZEN KOCH. This radio theater docu-drama is actually the tale of another peice called "Citizen Koch," a documentary about the influence of money on politcals since the Supreme Court ruled on Citizens United a few years ago. Unfortunately, that documentary will not be shown on a lot of PBS stations.. we will bring you that story, concerning the Koch Brothers, WNET Public Television in NYC, and the power of money. Part docu-drama, part spoof, you won't want to miss this Ubu episode..

Here's what's on tonight's Ubu Hour 0:00 Dead air, as the Ubu-istas seem unprepared to start their live radio theater stuff.. in fact they haven't even finished the scripts.. 8:30 Another Episode of the City That Once Worked.. 29:20 The live radio theater script.. 35:50 A docudrama about the largest school massacre ever to happen in the United States.. 50:35 A short tribute to a long-time jazz programmer who was once on KBOO and provided one of the best moments in KBOO's 45-year history. 51:30 Excerpts from the Ubu Membership Meeting.. We hear Pa Ubu (as played by Zed Craugh) explain everything that's wrong with Ubu and why Ubu is doomed to failure. This is easily the best thing in the show, and why they chose to stick it in last ten minutes, when most people have tuned out or have fallen asleep is beyond me..
