With Opener Beth Beer
Rachel Feinstein grew up outside Washington DC in the ruthless streets of Bethesda, Maryland. She maintained a healthy, robust D- average in school, while still finding time to mock and imitate her loved ones. Rachel moved to New York city at age 17 to start her career as an actress and slowly developed her character driven stand up act which her mom refers to as her "Talent Show."
Rachel' s Comedy Central Presents stand up special is now airing. She was also a finalist on Season 7's "Last Comic Standing" and was featured on Russell Simmons, "Live at the El Ray", TBS's "Just for Laughs" series and "Comics Unleashed." Rachel has written for "The Onion" and has voiced various characters on Adult Swim's "Venture Brothers", the animated Comedy Central web series, "Samurai Love God" and Spike TV's "Battle Pope." She has also been seen on E! And CNN's "Not Just Another Cable News Show." International spots include "Montreal Comedy Festival", Scotland's "Glasgow Comedy Festival", a TV show in Amsterdam that Rachel can't remember the name of and a U.S. Military tour in Korea.
Beth Beer - began life as a child and went through the teenage years thinking a perm and white stirrup pants were good ideas. She hit adulthood where she held a succession of low-paying menial jobs that crushed her spirit and youthful idealism. She has performed several successful comedy shows in front of her bathroom mirror, and recently received Greatest Comedian, an award she made out of a toilet paper tube. You likely did not see her in the APT-produced one-woman show Beware of the Other and Other Bedtime Stories unless you are a direct relation. She dedicates this show to the dying embers of Robert Pattinson's and Kristen Stewart's relationship.
