    Pay-to-Play

    Outright old fashioned American bribery. When we begin programming we're reserving a time slot just for this reward. Purchase this and you (along with whoever you like) will be given a single full hour show which we will promote and sell tickets to the public as if it weren't tainted with cold hard cash. You can do anything you want and we can't stop it. This is honestly a terrible idea for us to do.
