Late Night Bizarre

September 3, 2011
10:00 pm

LIAF’s annual, ever popular, irresistible, train-wreck of a programme – you wanna turn away but you know you can’t. Expect insane prison inmates, robust insect loving, an experiment involving a long spike and an ass … well, you get the picture. There’s a lot more, but these were the only plots we could publish.
