Rachael Robbins as Ginger Garson
Rachael Robbins was forced to have a sense of humor ever since she was born a brunette. After discovering peroxide, she then discovered that she was destined to be a performer. So she got naked for Playboy. Realizing there was more to performing than taking her clothes off and dancing in waterfalls, she decided to study comedy improv at The Groundlings in Los Angeles and The Upright Citizen’s Brigade in NYC.
Then she went on to the next logical step … CABARET! In an attempt to write better banter for her cabaret shows, she stumbled (literally … this chick likes vodka) into Jim Mendinos’ Stand-up class. Comedy and Rachael got on like wildfire! What followed was regular stints at comedy clubs around NYC. She has performed alongside such accomplished comedians as Amy Schumer, Jim Mendrinos, and Jessika Kirson. Also, she has been fortunate enough to perform at the opening ceremonies of The Hoboken International Film Festival, The NY Underground Comedy Festival, Jackie Martling’s Joke Hunt on Sirius XM Radio, and can be seen on The Hotel Networks On-Demand Comedy Channel, and was a guest on The Laugh Tour.
On camera work has brought her some amazing opportunities. She starred alongside Mather Zickle (Rachel Getting Married), Joe LaTruglio (Super Bad) and Kristen Schaal in the Director Guild award winning web series “Horrible People”. She has also had a chance to work with academy award and Emmy award winning actors such as Peter Bogdonovich, Charles Durning, Blanch Baker, and Robert Loggia.
This year Rachael had 2 scripts she co-wrote and starred in, Captured Hearts and Scavenger Killers. Both premiered at the Hoboken International Film Festival in June 2013. They are currently making the film festival rounds.
On stage, Rachael starred in Pieces … (of Ass) which brought her from NY to LA to Vegas, and back to NYC where the show settled at New World stages for a successful Equity run. Whe performed in Fine, Funny & Female, an all girl sketch comedy show and has also played at some classic NYC haunts, such as Bleecker Street Theater and Don’t Tell Mama. She starred, wrote and produced two sold out cabaret shows in New York City.
While doing the above mentioned, Rachael found the time to appear in over 40 films and raise 2 chihuahuas.
