I've been doing stand up comedy since 2010 with a stint as a character act 'Carole King' in 2002.  This landed me finals in Birmingham New Act competition and Laughing Horse Big Big Big New Act.

I was  resident stand up at Buddhafield Festival and runner up in Buddahfield Poetry slam, beating the gong in shows in Derby, Cheltenham and Wellingborough, performing around the country for promoters such as Buzz Comedy and Laffboro, promoting and Mcing Laffacino comedy nights at the Kitchen Garden Cafe.

At Edinburgh I performed in a duo show with Craig Deeley (Twop Twips, blogger, excellent comic), ‘Look at Craig and Rachel’ and also made some silly short films .

After moving down south, I had comedy material broadcast in BBC Radio 4 Extra for Rose D’or winning series of Newsjack and subsequent series. Gigged for Huggers kids comedy and told stories at Natural Born Storytellers and In a Nutshell, she gigged as a performance poet across London open mics.

In 2016 and 2017 reached the semi finals of Old Comedian of the year and finalist in Sitcom Trials, Edinburgh Fringe. 

In 2018 I took my first full stand up comedy show Life is a Caba-Rach to Women in Comedy Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival and Edinburgh Fringe and am now gigging as a comic, storyteller and funny poems person.
