20th July 2017
With a face that shouts “Xmas” but a soul that screams “Hanukkah”, Rachel Creeger has always felt like she has a foot in two worlds. Coming from a family of immigrants and refugees who felt totally British regardless of accents and lifestyle has coloured her perception of what it means to be part of a community. She’s lived in Essex, Israel and Belarus. She’s been a dental nurse, a singer and social worker. Now she performs, writes and directs comedy. Is it any wonder she has no idea where she truly belongs?
A debut solo stand up comedy show from the writer of “An Insomniac’s Guide To Ambulances” exploring the drive to fit in, with a bit about being a pop star.
“Creeger’s signature move is all about drawing the audience into the action”
Views From The Gods
“Funny and incisive – Creeger is a woman of our time!” Lynne Parker, Funny Women
“The crowd loved you!” The Good Ship Comedy Club
“Rachel Creeger is so good it’s bordering on unfair. A delightful and funny comic.” Mark Dolan
“Rachel is so naturally funny and charming, I’ve never seen a single audience member fail to smile and laugh at her comedy!” Patrick Monahan
Rachel Creeger has been running and compering comedy gigs for adults and children since 2011, in North London. She is currently resident MC for the popular ‘Upstairs at the Adam & Eve’, now in its 6th season, which attracts household names, a loyal audience and regularly sells out. Over the years she’s run, MC’d and performed sets at comedy events for private individuals, charities and community groups including Action Duchenne, Norwood, The Langdon Foundation, WJR, and most recently ran comedy writing and performance courses in London and Jerusalem.
As a director she’s best known for comedic theatre productions including the award nominated, sell out fringe show ‘Mancunian Rhapsody’, and some awesome stand up comedian’s solo shows, including Ria Lina’s 4? ‘Dear Daughter’ (winner of Best Comedy Show at the Greater Manchester Fringe), and the first run of Abi Roberts’ award nominated 2015 smash hit ‘Anglichanka”. Writing credits include dark comedy “Staffroom” (voted Most Audience Recommended Show at the Camden Fringe) and 4? reviewed ‘An Insomniac’s Guide To Ambulances’. She was also a Script Associate on the show 2525 for BBC Radio 4 (John Stanley Productions).
