For anyone who has ever been told 'NO" to their life's dream, this event is for you...for anyone who has ever felt adversity, and rose above it in a completely unexpected way, this one is for you...for anyone who has ever wanted to laugh in the face of dire odds, this one is for you...

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."
