Rachel Creeger

Biography

Rachel performs around the London circuit as well as in Israel, and at paid private gigs for schools and charities. She has also had the chance to be a guest on Grainne Maguire's topical podcast What Has The News Ever Done For Me in both London and Edinburgh, and to perform with a stellar comedy cast in a reading of Meryl O'Rourke's sitcom pilot Bundle Of Joy. She's part of the rotating family friendly cast of This Is Your Trial and Jew-O-Rama.

Rachel is the resident MC at popular comedy night Upstairs at the Adam & Eve in Mill Hill, which has been delighting audiences since it opened in 2011. It's known as a gig where established acts and familiar faces perform a mixture of new material plus tried and tested stuff. 

She runs and hosts lots of comedy events for charities and community groups, which over the years have included Tzedek, Action Duchenne, Norwood, The Langdon Foundation, WJR, Donnie's Fund, Adult CP Hub and most recently ran a comedy writing and performance course for teachers at an inset day.

​As a director, Rachel has worked on a lot of comedic theatre productions and some awesome stand up comedian's solo shows, including Ria Lina's award-winning Dear Daughter and Jo Coffey's Not 25.

Rachel can regularly be heard on BBC Radio London casting a comedic eye over unusual news stories from around the world. She was also a Script Associate on comedy sketch show 2525 for BBC Radio 4 (John Stanley Productions).

Rachel has always loved comedy and improv:

There's something about live performance that is so dangerous! The main feature of my gap year experience was the basement bar we created where we would relentlessly play with the "Whose Line Is It Anyway? Book Of Games". I am fully aware of how annoying we must have been. I've been working in comedy for 13 years, as a booker/promoter running gigs and as an MC and performer. 

Her previous show, It's No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl, won Best Comedy Award at the Greater Manchester Fringe in 2018, had a sell out Edinburgh Festival Fringe run, then went on to tour the UK and Israel.
