The show will play Saturdays at 8:00 pm at The Marsh Berkeley, 2120 Allston Way in Berkeley near Shattuck in downtown Berkeley. More dates to follow. For tickets, the public may call Brown Paper Tickets at 800-838-3006 or visit www.themarsh.org.
Ann Randolph is currently performing her sold-out show “Loveland,” at The Marsh Berkeley. Her previous show, “Squeeze Box,” an off-Broadway hit and the winner of both LA Weekly’s Best Solo Show for 2002 and the Los Angeles Times Ovation Award for Best Solo Show 2002, also enjoyed an extended run at The Marsh last year. A resident of Los Angeles, Randolph is a former member of the Groundlings and Unsafe Sketch, and has received LA Weekly’s “Best Female Comedy Performer” award. As an actress she has appeared in numerous plays including the long running cult classic, “Bob’s Office Party,” for which she created two of the most beloved characters that later appeared in “Squeeze Box.” The LA Times critic wrote of Randolph’s performance, “In a pair of wickedly hysterical roles, Randolph steals the show.” In the theater, Randolph has acted in "Eight Ways To Meet Your Neighbor" (for which she was nominated for Best Comedy Female Performance by the LA Weekly), "Betsy Loves Snap Beans," "Hair" and "Waiting for Godot."

Betsy Salkind. Once a Bay Area favorite, performing in "Anne Frank Superstar" at The Marsh, “Viva Variety,” Cobb's, and The Punchline, among others, Salkind now lives in LA where she recently taped a half hour of stand up for a new TV series. The Boston Globe said, "There are countless ways to make someone laugh, and Betsy Salkind knows most of them. Want sarcastic wit? Political humor? Or maybe just a good animal mime? Salkind can pull all that off and more.” Best known as 'Squirrel Lady,' Salkind has appeared on "Girls Night Out," "Last Comic Standing," and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." She was a staff writer for “Saturday Night Special” and “Roseanne,” and is author of "More Than Once Upon A Time" and "Betsy's Sunday School Bible Classics” (children's books for adults) as well as the blog "Ethel's Law."

Emily Levine. Brainiac comedian Levine combines big ideas with big laughs. Her ability to make connections between the personal, the political and the cosmological has earned her a devoted following on line (her TED talk has garnered over a million hits), at sold-out stage shows in New York and Los Angeles and with comedy afficionados like “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening, who remarked: “If you don’t get Emily Levine’s smart comedy, you’re an idiot.” She is currently in post –production on her movie, “Emily @ the Edge of Chaos,” in which she explains quantum physics, chaos theory and why there’s a setting on the iron for “Permanent Press.” She gave a Marsh Rising performance of “Five Easy Steps to Metaphysical Fitness” at The Marsh San Francisco in 2008.
