As a Boston-area native, Rachel Dratch was “wicked psyched” to be supporting Family Reach at the 2014 Cooking Live! Boston. Cooking alongside Chef Ming Tsai and comedian Lenny Clarke, Rachel had the crowd in a fit of laughs with her sense of humor. After meeting our families and hearing their stories, Rachel immediately asked how she could further support our mission. Today, Rachel is a Celebrity Ambassador and continues to help us reach more families fighting cancer nationwide.
Rachel Dratch got her start in comedy at The Second City improv group in Chicago. It wasn’t long before she hit her breakthrough on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, where she was a mainstay of the cast from 1999 to 2006. Her recurring characters include Denise, a Boston teen; and perhaps most memorably, Debbie Downer, a woman with a knack for depressing others.
