God Bless Cambodia at the 2018 Fringe

In God Bless Cambodia, Randy Ross is a chronically single man who decides to travel the world through four continents after the loss of a job. He hopes to change his luck with love. Yet as he highlights his many relationships it becomes clear why he is hopelessly single. His world travels world result in more sexual misadventures.

Reading a travel guide book he learns that you can travel cheap if you travel like a backpacker. On a trip to his local camping store he meets a colorful sales person. He asked for a 60 liter backpack with a waterproof cover, and the salesman had him covered. He added "I don't know if your going to Bangkok, but if you are, I highly recommend a massage at a place called tugs." Taken aback, He noted the info and decided to ask for a travel shirt. "In Ko Samui there is a body spa called the curious finger." The salesman sniffed his pinkie to relive the memory. TMI but in the end Randy spent $500, but as he left the shop he decided not to shake the salesman's hand.

Much of the show was laugh out loud funny. I can identify with this middle aged man's desire for travel after the loss of a relationship. It was like Eat, Pray, Love, minus the praying and with high class literary sex instead of love.
