Randy Peyser believes that from adversity comes comedy. Therefore, our relationships, our abundance or lack thereof, our dreams, our quests to "get it right - whatever "it" is, our desire for success, and our relationship to the Divine, as well as much more, are all grist for her comic mill. In what she calls, "Comic Intervention," Randy sprinkles wisdom throughout her talks, while cleverly spoofing all of the beliefs and techniques she has learned along the way.
Sample pieces include:
In the Beginning

Much of her material is interactive and participatory.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Randy also sometimes incorporates
guitar and exotic tribal drums into her talks. People appear to be
genuinely moved when she plays. Many times, people cry. She hopes this
is because they are touched by her songs, and not because her singing is that bad.
Randy can adapt any of her material or create new material based on the theme
of your conference, tv show, radio show, church service, ritual, festival, party, cruise, etc.
She is available for anything from a five minute stint to a full-length appearance.
