Part of the Women In Comedy Festival
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 solo stand up comedy show from the writer of “An Insomniac’s Guide To Ambulances” about 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’ is a funny and accessible solo stand up show exploring identity, expectations and rebellion. A sell-out debut Edinburgh run in 2017 was followed up in 2018 with a successful UK tour and a return to the Fringe in 2018. So far it’s been seen by thousands of people of all faiths and none, each finding their own connections to the story. ‘It’s No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl’ achieved a 4 star review from Funny Women, which you can read here: http://funnywomen.com/2017/08/24/no-job-nice-jewish-girl/

Described as one of ‘the UK’s best comedy festivals’ (The Skinny), Manchester’s Women In Comedy Festival is Europes only festival dedicated to gender equality and takes place annually in Manchester, UK during October. The Festival launched in 2013 as a volunteer-led festival presenting both established and up and coming talent across the spectrum of stand up comedy, comedy theatre, improv performing arts, film, spoken work and visual arts. Described as one of ‘the UK’s best comedy festivals’ (The Skinny) the sixth annual 2018 Women In Comedy Festival takes place in October 2018.
Described as a ‘brilliant, brilliant festival’, full to the brim with female comedic talent. The festival is directed by Dulcet Sounds founder Hazel O’Keefe and Frog and Bucket director Jessica Toomey with the support of the crew, our main sponsors Laughology, Laughing Cows Comedy and our supporters, media partners and advertisers.
The festival has grown steadily over the years since the first event in 2013 ‘Manchester’s homegrown Women In Comedy Festival (set up by Hazel O’Keefe) has found its feet in a very short space of time – only three years in attracting the likes of actress Maxine Peake as a patron, joining Jo Enright, Isy Suttie and Jo Caulfield.’ M.E.N
‘It’s a very positive event, attracting massive headline acts.’ (Manchester Evening News)
Actor Maxine Peake (pictured left) joined the team of festival patrons. “I’m proud to be supporting the UK Women in Comedy Festival as a patron. A festival filled with laughter combined with feminist principles taking place in the North … what’s not to support!”
