"Bye Bye Liver" is a fun, fast-paced comedic romp that takes a satirical look at the pratfalls and pitfalls of the drinking culture. Whether it's the girl we all know that should never, ever drink liquor or a terrifying (yet enlightening) look into the Ladies Room at the club, every drinking danger is captured in hilarious detail. And it's all interspersed with interactive social games with the audience, such as Never Have I Ever and Would You Rather!"
