Rachel Feinstein grew up outside Washington DC, in the mean streets of Bethesda, MD. She maintained a healthy D+ average in school, while finding time to mock and imitate her loved ones. Rachel moved to New York at 17 to start her career as an actress and slowly developed her character-driven stand-up act, which her mom refers to as her "talent show." A more detailed account of the many humiliations and other shenagigans that I, whoops, I mean she, encountered on her way can be found on her album, "Thug Tears" released on Comedy Central Records in November 2011.
Rachel was a finalist on Season 7 of Last Comic Standing. She was also featured on Russell Simmons' Presents, Live at the El Ray, TBS's Just For Laughs series and Comics Unleashed. She has her own half hour special, Comedy Central Presents Rachel Feinstein.
She's written for "The Onion" and "Heeb Magazine." Rachel has voiced various characters on Adult Swim's "Venture Brothers," the animated Comedy Central web series, "Samurai Love God" and Spike TV’s web series "Battle Pope." She has also appeared on VH1, E! Entertainment, and CNN’s "Not Just Another Cable News Show."
Rachel also reviews hip hop as her Grandma, "Ice Cold Rhoda, World's Oldest Hater" based on a star of david rating system on comedycentral.com and Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg on Hot 97.
