Rachel has been a monthly guest on BBC Radio London's Sunny & Shay Show since 2019, providing a comical look at topical news stories. Her radio credits also include the other flagship shows on BBC Radio London, as well as BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 2, Radio 5 Live and many other regional stations. In 2022 she was one of 3 London acts showcased for the comedy stage at the BBC Upload Festival.

Rachel won the coveted Best Comedy Award at the Greater Manchester Fringe 2017 for 'It's No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl', her solo stand up show exploring identity, expectations and rebellion. A sell-out debut Edinburgh Festival Fringe run in 2017 was followed by a successful UK tour, a triumphant return to the Fringe in 2018 and a tour of Israel in spring 2019. Her second show, 'Hinayni!' ran at the prestigious Underbelly in Edinburgh where it received 5★ and 4★ reviews. She created two new shows online during lockdown, 'Pray It Forward' and 'Ultimate Jewish Mother'. They were finally performed live last year to great acclaim, with 'Pray It Forward' receiving an award nomination at the 2022 Greater Manchester Fringe then a jam-packed run in Edinburgh. Her latest project is to merge 'Hinayni!' and 'Pray It Forward' into a 90-minute touring show, working title 'Rachel Profiling' as well as performing 'Ultimate Jewish Mother' at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023.

Rachel is one of the Jewish "community's foremost and talented comedians" (The Jewish News), not least as host of "Chanukah in the Square", an event in Trafalgar Square, central London. As well as performing there, she has introduced dignitaries such as Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Chief Rabbi Mirvis, and a range of acts from around the world. Rachel headlines main stages at Jewish events and festivals including packed gigs at the prestigious Limmud Festival and was also the comedy producer for the Tsitsit Jewish Fringe Festival in its first years. During lockdown, Rachel performed for audiences in the UK, USA, Israel, Australia, New Zealand and Finland, and hosted charity gigs, corporate events, a wedding, and a bar mitzvah!

Rachel is a Non-Executive Director on the board of Funny Women, she regularly performs at and comperes showcases and corporate gigs as part of their HERlarious project. Her personal corporate clients have included Barclays PLC, Schroders, Navex Global and charities such as Donnie's Fund, Saying Goodbye (the Mariposa Trust), Adult CP Hub and Tzedek. She has also hosted and gigged at numerous private functions. Rachel has run comedy writing, improv and performance courses across the UK and Israel.

As a playwright and director Rachel has over fifty theatre credits to her name including everything from touring shows to West End productions. Her own work includes the 5★ reviewed, critically acclaimed shows 'An Insomniac's Guide To Ambulances', and 'Staffroom' (winner of Most Audience Recommended show in the Camden Fringe, award sponsored by Everything Theatre). Rachel directed award nominated musical comedy 'Mancunian Rhapsody', Ria Lina's award-winning stand-up show 'Dear Daughter' and was assistant director and co-producer for the multi award nominated, smash hit productions of Othello and Hamlet by Shakespeare Peckham. She has worked extensively with DYSPLA, a renowned organisation supporting neurodivergent creatives, which is also a strong part of her own identity. Rachel has written for the Jewish Chronicle, the Independent, Jewish Renaissance, Female Arts Magazine and been quoted in the Guardian.

Rachel really pushing boundaries with her unique voice and comedy talent. Being the first woman of her community to perform on the UK comedy circuit is not without challenges, she doesn't perform on Sabbath and is committed to her family, it's real life - not a character! Her comedic style is funny and entertaining observational storytelling, and her stage presence is unsurprisingly relaxed as she has been performing on and off since she was 5 years old, in choirs, musical theatre and (briefly but memorably) a dance troupe. Rachel is also a skilled improverser and improvisor, regularly performing with This Is Your Trial, Comedy Auction and The Complete History of Pop in an Hour.
