It’s No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl
Comedy Evening with
8.00pm Thursday 28 March
Beit Oleh America and Camada in Netanya , Netanya AACI welcome London based comedienne, Rachel Creeger, the only Orthodox Jewish woman on the UK comedy circuit who is touring for the first time in Israel .
With a face that shouts “Xmas” but a soul that screams “Chanukah”, Rachel has always felt as though she has a foot in two worlds. Coming from a family of immigrants and refugees, who felt British regardless of accents and lifestyle, has enhanced her perception of what it means to be part of a community. She has lived in Essex, Israel and Belarus. She has 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 solo standup comedy show from the writer of ‘An Insomniac’s Guide To Ambulances’ about rebellion and the drive to fit in, with a bit about being a pop star.
Winner of the Best Comedy Award at the Greater Manchester Fringe 2017, ‘It’s No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl’ enjoyed a sell-out debut at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017, followed in 2018 with a successful UK tour and a triumphant return to the Fringe.
So far, it has been seen by thousands of people of all faiths and none, each finding their own connections to the story.
The only practising orthodox Jewish act on the UK comedy circuit, Rachel Creeger recently completed a 6 week guest run on BBC Radio London, providing a comedic look back at the day’s news. Earlier in 2018 she was invited onto BBC 3CR to discuss Jewish comedy and before that Rachel was a script associate on BBC R4 futuristic comedy sketch show 2525. Writing for the Jewish Chronicle and Jewish Renaissance magazine, she has also been featured in the Jewish News, Jewish Weekly and Jewish Telegraph. She is well known as the resident MC of the north London comedy club ‘Upstairs at the Adam & Eve’ and a headline act at Limmud Festival. Rachel is also an award winning director and playwright specialising in comedy, with a long list of credits to her name including West End and touring shows.
