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...

Ubu Half Hour April Membership Drive Special

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Mon, 04/07/2008

The Ubu Half Hour Special: Whereas most programs have specials that are as long if not longer than the normal program, the Ubu Hour does things differently, by airing only half an hour this month. As a treat to the KBOO members, we will inflict half as much Ubu Hour insipidness and inanity on the listening public. Not only is it only half an hour long, but the Ubu 1/2-Hour contains no new radio theater, just some excerpts from previous shows (The Torturer's Apprentice and the rather notorious FCC Show, either of which can be obtained by calling 503 232-8818 or 1 877- 500-5266 by Friday Apr 11th)  as well as the usual begging and pleading for the money which this radio station needs.

Ubu Hour

Sun, 03/02/2008

Second half of the Ubu Hour's March 2008 program.. More plundered bits of moivies both new and old, are collaged with speaches from Bush, Cheney and Rice to create a soundtrack of hallucinatory insanity... This one moves into the darker realms of imperialist conquest, violence and torture. Listen to at your own risk. 
 

Jesus's Second Coming Part 3: Crucifiction Erection

program: 
Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 02/03/2008

The third and final chapter in the UBU HOUR's completely warped Audio Drama about the Second Coming of Jesus, this one is titled CRUCIFICTION ERECTION. Even more perverse, foul and filthy than the other two parts of this dark surreal political comedy, in this episode Jesus has been taken prisoner by the imperial forces. Prick Cheney, Ann Coutlergeist, Swill O'Riled, Reverend Spat Rotburpson, and Commander in Theif Dubya Tush plan to lead in the enhanced interror-gation and punishment of the prisoner, but other forces are afoot..... Warning! This program contains excessive profanity, indecency, nudity, violence, torture, rape, lurid descriptions of disgusting acts, masturbation, Biblical incest, drugs and an orgy on top of an elephant. Listener discretion is strongly advised.

STIGMATA GLORY HOLE, the second part of the Ubu Hour's surreal black comedy Second Life of Jesus the Avenger Trilogy.  In this episode Jesus is pursued by vicious Bleak Water contractors while trying to sabotage a Republican presidential candidate debate and hilarity ensues. This audio drama contains profanity, indecency, sex, violence, torture, perversity, male organ enlargement surgieries, lewd stigmata holes and other stuff that may offend a few people... perhaps more than a few people so listen to it at YOUR OWN RISK.

Dirty Laundry in the Republican Closet

Ubu Hour
program date: 
Sun, 01/06/2008

DIRTY LAUNDRY IN THE REPUBLICAN CLOSET - The first part of a hilarious new Ubu Hour political drama that completely skewers the homophobic right-wing leaders in the Republican Party and their quest to pound morality and family values into the American public to disguise their own "sexual proclivities." This program contains profanity, sexual situations, and other content that some listeners may find offensive...
