About this show

Take a trip down south to Texas' third smallest town, Tuna. First, we meet Thurston and Arles on their talk radio show. Today's topics include the winner of the American Heritage Essay Contest (a piece entitled "Human Rights – Why Bother?"), local auditions for My Fair Lady (which will now be set in Polynesia so they can make use of last year's South Pacific set), and the scandalous death of Judge Buckner. The cast of characters, all hilariously played by just two actors, continues to expand as we meet upstanding citizens of Tuna like puppy poisoning Pearl, used gun store owner Didi, and R.R. – an old coot who regularly sees UFOs. You're in for plenty of laughs with this send-up of small town folks that Variety calls "Howlingly funny."
