Rachelle Elie

Comedian Rachelle Elie has had a very busy summer! She brought her first stand up comedy hour Lady Rash to the Ottawa Fringe Festival and to the prestigious ZooFest /OFF Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Also after doing stand up comedy for the last ten years she headlined for the first time at Canada's National Stand Up Club Yuk Yuk's in Ottawa. 
 
For those of you who don’t know Rachelle four years ago she moved to the Almonte area with her teenage boys and OBGYN husband. Their move was inspired by the entire family’s strong desire to be closer to nature. At first it seemed like it may be career suicide but Elie has been thrilled that her comedy career has blossomed. Rachelle has been producing Toronto’s longest running Cabaret The Rag Bag Cabaret in Toronto since 1996 and it has been thrilling to realize she can produce shows for her new community. This year Rag Bag Cabaret was picked up by Ottawa Busker Festival and ZooFest -Off Just For Laughs in Montreal. Past Rag Bag shows have included Mike MacDonald, Derek Seguin, Jessica Holmes & Samantha Bee to name a few.
 
Last year Rachelle started producing The Rash Comedy Bash: an evening of stand-up comedy. This new show is inspired by The Canadian Association of Stand Up Comedians who’s goal is to: "elevate stand-up comedy to a recognized art form in Canada". She is very happy to be able to bring high quality stand up comedy shows to the area and expose audiences to high quality Canadian talent.
