Inappropriate in All the Right Ways-
"A show like no other. Part stand up hilarity, part therapy and 100% fun" Huffington Post
" Wickedly hysterical" Los Angeles Times
"She's a genius" Mel Brooks
Popular and provocative performer, Ann Randolph, takes comic catharsis to a new level with her new one-woman show, Inappropriate In All The Right Ways. Randolph fuses her trademark irreverent observations with TED-style self-help messaging to create a wildly entertaining night of theater.
Inappropriate starts with Randolph sharing her own wild ride: from living in a mental institution in Appalachia; to living on a boat off the coast of Alaska pretending to clean the Exxon Oil spill with some good ol' boys from Louisiana; to a homeless shelter in Santa Monica; to hooking up with Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft for an off Broadway run on 42nd St; to teaching thousands to take the stage and speak their truth. Each step of the way, we watch Randolph face tremendous obstacles and defeats and are witness to how each of these challenges led to the unfolding of this always unique and always surprising artist.
Ann Randolph is an Ovation Award winning playwright and performer. Her multi-character solo show Squeeze Box was originally produced by Mel Brooks and the late Anne Bancroft and went on to become a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway hit. Her most recent solo show, Loveland, premiered at The Marsh and for which she was named, Best Solo Performer in San Francisco. The show has toured both nationally and internationally and enjoyed a critically-acclaimed run at the Arena Stage in D.C. It also won San Francisco Bay Area Critics Circle Award for "Best Original Screenplay."
Randolph's previous solo shows and plays have garnered many awards. She was a former member of the Groundlings and Unsafe Sketch, receiving LA Weekly's "Best Female Comedy Performer." Her solo show, Miss America was awarded "Best Solo Show" and as an actress she has appeared in numerous plays including the long running cult classic, Bob's Office Party for which she created the roles of Brandy and Carol. The LA Times wrote of Randolph's performance: "In a pair of wickedly hysterical roles, Randolph steals the show."
