Guest Uncensored hosted by Samurai Dan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Due to the state of the economy, this year's "Guests Uncensored" event will be a little more toned down than it normally is. That means no flaming hoops of death or live reenactments of Battle Royale with our guests. We hope you'll still join us for a mellow, quaint evening of sophisticated and intelligent conversation.


Wait...this just in! The recession is over! "Guest Uncensored" is back on in full force! Light the flaming hoops and break out the explosive collars and implements of death! It's going to be a long and interesting night.
