I have photographed Rachel many times performing.
Her comedy/physical antics are delightful. Now she has a one-woman show “Grown Ass Woman”. Here is the interview I did with her yesterday!

OPENING SEPT 29th!
The Department of Fools is back for sloppy seconds! After a successful revival at the PIT of their Fringe NYC hit, A History of Servitude, the Fools are returning to the PIT with their newest Commedia creation: The Tooth-Puller. A fast-paced farce of masked mayhem, The Tooth-Puller is playing at the Peoples Improv Theater (The PIT) from September 29th through November 5
The Tooth-Puller has no script. Instead, in the grand Commedia tradition, using nothing more than an outline the Fools weave together each performance from bits of comic business, song and improvisation. Commedia dell’Arte is the great-grand daddy of modern improv and sketch comedy. Audiences will roar at the goofy goodness of Commedia, which gave birth to the comedy of today!
The Tooth-Puller is a carnivalesque confection wrapped in hallucinogenic treats, sprinkled with dancing octogenarians, with a pinch of dick jokes, dipped in a festive musical fondue, topped with an ever-changing improvised ending, and filled with a creamy center of love and revenge.
The internationally diverse company includes Sylvie Mae Baldwin, Yair Ben-Dor (ABC’s Quantico), Jessenia Cuesta, Matthew A.J. Gregory (Power of Darkness/The Mint), Shira Hadad, Ben Rademacher, Andy Richardson (Newsies & Gypsy – Broadway), Anna Tempte and Rotem Weiner.
All performances are at The Peoples Improv Theatre – Striker Mainstage
123 Esat 24th Street (between Park Avenue & Lexington Ave.)
