Map of Trip Around the World


Not for the Squeamish

Tales of a Reluctant World Traveler

Sixteen weeks, four continents, three bungee jumps, and I couldn't come home soon enough. This is the story of how a Boston homebody turned a solo trip around the globe into a comedy novel and an acclaimed one-man show. The 1.5-hour, multimedia event includes a humorous travel slide show, readings from my novel God Bless Cambodia and performances from my show The Chronic Single's Handbook.


Audience: 

General public, comedy lovers, people interested in world travel, writers


Praise for the Show:

"…an engaging, theatrical performance"

"…had patrons laughing from the get-go."

"You should definitely consider bringing [Randy] to your library!"

Peter Thornell,

Collection Development Librarian, Hingham Public Library


"…brought a large and diverse crowd"

"...had us all laughing out loud!"

"highly recommend working with Randy."

Bri Ozanne,

Adults Services and Programming, Medfield Public Library


Selected by Airbnb as a high-quality experience for Boston visitors.
