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.
