ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND or ALEC IN WONDERLAND

Ubu Hour Radio Theater presents ALEC IN WONDERLAND/ or ALICE IN PLUNDERLAND. The White Rabbit brings Alice back to Wonderland, to combat ALEC (The American Legislative Exchange Council), The Red Queen (Michele Bachmann) and the utterly Mad Tea Party as they subvert freedoms to allow the large corporations and the rich and powerful to become even richer and more powerful. It's a strange, surreal trip that involves militaristic playing cards, horny rodents, mad hatters, Jabbersquawks who spew the airwaves with hate propaganda, and a talking cake who says "EAT ME!" Learn how the trickle down theory of economics benefits the poor and disposessed... A non-stop adventure into the bizarre, strange and profane...

Short Description: 
Ubu and the Arizona Shooting

Whereas others have used the recent shootings in Arizona as a time of mourning and reflection, the UBU HOUR uses this tragic event for totally crass and offensive satire... Tonight we present two "high caliber" audio dramas that "target" themes around what happened that day in Arizona . 

A new episode of The CITY THAT ONCE WORKED "takes aim" with more local political satire, through the "target scope" of the Arizona event, as local politicians, FBI agents and hipsters are put in the "crosshairs."

How I Wrote 'The Deadliest Prey'

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 08/31/2008

Controversy erupts in the bewildering aftermath of the airing of an extemely violent radio drama involving murderous Blackwater Contractors, scantily clad women and sanctimonious senators. Listen at your own risk to HOW I WROTE THE DEADLIEST PREY. 

This one is a tale about the aftermath of airing a previous Ubu Hour episode, and some of the complaint it generated. It does contain violence (including an extremely graphic descriptions of a maiming and a blinding), sex, profanity, graphic descriptions  and other material that might be considered offensive to some listeners, and in fact about two thirds of the way in we even appologize for ten minutes for all the offensive material we aired.  This aired a day after the conclusion of KBOO's incredible 101 hour DADA and Surrealism festival....

Sun, 06/01/2008

Blood-lusting hunters pursue a trio of scantily-clad strippers in the Oregon Wilderness.  Part 1 of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, one of the Ubu Hour's most contriversal radio dramas. Based loosely on the Richard Connelly story and using actual sound bits and dialog from a couple of early productions of this story from the 1940s (including one with Orson Welles for the show SUSPENSE) this version is incredibly violent, lurid and profane. Cheney and Scalia join General Zaroff for the hunt. Do not listen to this if you are easily offended!
