I happened upon Rachel’s comedy when I saw a clip of her on Twitter. A joke from this set at the Comedy Underground had gone viral and it had to do with my total favorite, The Rock. And she said yes to talking to me, you guys, cause here it is.  

In our conversation, Rachel shares the moment she felt her calling to be a performer and all the uphill battles that followed. Rachel is an actress with a positive outlook – she loves the travel that comes with standup and she loves working on films!

We chat about theater snobs and cancel culture but then it gets much happier when Rachel tells me all about her crush on Skeet Ulrich from Scream. We had a delightful chat and I hope you enjoy it!

Support Rachel by following her on social media and consuming her comedy in whatever way you can get it in the country you live! If you’re lucky enough to catch The State Of it next week, do so! And go see Rachel do standup if/when she comes to your town!
