(You are Invited to ) Uncle Fang-en-stein’s Last Show” centers around Frank, the host of the late-night shock-TV program “The Scaratorium.” We join Frank on the last night of his beloved show. He has been told the show is being cancelled, and is spending his on-air time showing clips from some of his favorite movies. Frank launches a campaign to save his show just as the producer’s air-headed girlfriend Morgana Dark shows up on the set. But things aren’t what they seem: It turns out that the show isn’t being cancelled, just Frank; Morgana isn’t all that ditzy, after all; and Frank finds that his true love was there all along. Meanwhile, we see some of Fang-en-stein’s clips, and meet Dale Cosby, Bill Cosby’s werewolf cousin; the Vampire Pimp; a 50′s couple starring in a horror movie musical; a voice-over actor who delights in forecasting death; and many more.
