ABOUT RACHEL LAFORCE
Rachel LaForce offers a new form of entertainment where comedy and consciousness collide. She is a spirited multi-hyphenate creator bringing over a decade of professional experience to the proverbial table. With a keen sense for creative producing, podcasting, and writing, LaForce cut her teeth in Chicago performing all over America and Europe with The Second City Touring Company. An active performer, Rachel’s onscreen credits include; two projects by Whitney Cummings, Hulu, HBO, TruTv, and more. Contributing amongst other powerhouse comedians such as; Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, and Aparna Nancherla, Rachel is honored to be highlighted in writer/director Anna Fields' newest book; 'The Girl In The Show: Three Generations of Comedy, Culture, and Feminism'. Rachel can be seen in the viral College Humor sketch, Honest Interracial Date, and was even turned into a gif (yes, really). Her work has been featured at various comedy festivals and has been published in The Huffington Post comedy blog and Chicago Tribune. Throughout the pandemic, LaForce pitched to Comedy Central, had a female-driven show in development with Merman Productions, and was the showrunner for Highly Unlikely, a digital show for Wikileaf.com. Additionally, Rachel co-produces two comedy shows in Los Angeles at The Hollywood Improv and has two weekly podcasts, Common Ground Morning Show and The Rachel LaForce Show. Most recently, Skewed Orbit launched three new digital shows for Snapchat, one of which Rachel created, writes, and hosts. Known for her magnetic stage presence, when she isn't behind the scenes or in front of the camera, she’s most likely on stage talking about her feelings and why you should too.
