Rachel Feinstein grew up outside Washington, D.C., as the daughter of a civil rights lawyer and a blues musician, which gave her a keen eye for the absurd and unjust. She developed her hilarious, character-driven style by opening for her father's blues band as a kid and doing impressions of various loud and jarring relatives.
Rachel has made numerous appearances on Comedy Central and can also be seen on episodes of "Comics Unleashed" as well as the "Just For Laughs" comedy series on TBS. 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's "Jewtastic" and CNN's "Not Just Another Cable News Show." International spots include Montreal Comedy Festival, Scotland's Glasgow Comedy Festival, Amsterdam's Comedy Factory and a U.S. military tour in Korea.
Rachel appeared in the films "Circus Maximus" and "Turbo Charge," a mockumentary about The Cars. She has been on MTV's "Hip Hop Squares," E!'s "Chelsea Lately" and Russell Simmons's “Def Comedy Jam" series on Comedy Central. Rachel also taped her own half-hour special, "Comedy Central Presents Rachel Feinstein," in 2012. Her character, Ice-Cold Rhoda, The Original Gangster Grandma, interviewed Ginuwine and appeared as VH1's hip-hop correspondent on the channel's new music special, "The Winningest Winners of 2011."
