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...

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!
