About the Show: It's the 1950s, and the residents of a typical American suburb are all vying to win the American Dream, a bowling trophy. But the arrival of star ball-loving ballplayer Doug Out and sexy-but-fishy starlet Marlin Monroe to award the prize brings everyone's secrets to the surface. And when Bobbie Sox, a local Pink Lady-turned-Pinko Lady, unwittingly brings a communist mastermind to town, the stakes rise even higher as everyone's way of life is threatened by the evil Communist space potato Spud Nick and his Russian mail-order bride sidekick. Their Cold War threatens to give a whole new meaning to climate change. Who will win the American Dream? Will local illegal space alien immigrant, Ross Well, finally get his green card? Will Cuban diner owner Desi Speakenglish say something in an accent that other people can understand? Will local dancing rebel, Wes Sidestory, find a cause? Will General Dwight Supremacy stop hanging "Dwights Only" signs on everything? Find out in HPT 162: Commie Dearest!
