The Chronic Single's Handbook
"A lot of fun to watch." Four Stars (Winnipeg Free Press)
"Literary" "Funny" "Raw" (DCMetroTheaterArts)
"Sharply funny a quality solo show" (FringeReview, Edinburgh)
The Show: The Chronic Single's Handbook is a one-man show by Randy Ross about a never-married hypochondriac who travels the world looking to change his luck with love. Remember Eat, Pray, Love? This is nothing like it.
The story begins in Boston and goes astray in Greece, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Along the way, audiences hear the stories "Domination for Dummies" and "One Day at The Curious Finger Body Spa."
Please note: The Chronic Single's Handbook carries content warnings for adult situations, adult language, and more adult situations. (Twice your daily allowance for adult situations.)
The one-hour show has been featured at fringe theater festivals around the U.S., Canada, and in Edinburgh, Scotland.
The Writer/Performer: Randy Ross is a Boston-area novelist, performer and Web consultant. His comedic novel, *God Bless Cambodia*, will be published by The Permanent Press in 2017. His fiction, erotica, and humor have appeared in The Drum, Black Heart Magazine, and ForTheGirls.com, a porn site for women. In 2007, Ross took a four-month, solo trip around the world and learned to say in three languages: Speak English? Got Pepto-Bismol? and Where is the evacuation helicopter? The Chronic Single's Handbook was inspired by the trip.
