On Saturday, July 27 at 8 pm, BLACK BOX Cabaret presents "I Only Wanna Laugh," an evening of musical shenanigans with Ali Funkhouser, The ACME Rhythm Section, and violinist Irina Fainkichen. A graduate of Oklahoma City University's prestigious Music Theatre program, Ali played Margot and understudied Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, directed by Laura Bell Bundy, at THE LEXington Theatre Company in Kentucky. Ali toured internationally with Electric Youth across the U.K., France, Italy, Austria and Slovenia, and on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas. National tour credits include Evita (directed by Hal Prince) and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

Ali was trained at the Franklin School for the Performing Arts and is an alumna of Broadway Artists Alliance. She studies improv comedy at Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC.
