Prize mo­ment for stand-up Rachel

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

AP­PLAUSE please for Rachel Creeger, who has just scooped Best Com­edy Award at this year’s Greater Manch­ester Fringe Fes­ti­val for her show It’s No Job for a Nice Jewish Girl.

“As a mod­ern Or­tho­dox woman, to re­ceive recog­ni­tion as a stand-up co­me­dian from both in­side and out­side the com­mu­nity means a great deal,” she said.

“This show is unashamedly Jewish but ex­plores sub­jects that every­one can iden­tify with.”

She’s off now to the Ed­in­burgh Fringe, where she’ll be do­ing 20 shows, “but not on Shab­bat, ob­vi­ously”.
