Rachel Berger is widely acknowledged as one of Australia’s finest stand-up comedians. Her material encompasses contemporary lifestyles, offering a hilarious and poignant expose of human foibles. Her dynamic presence and engagingly sharp observations have made her an extremely popular performer both live and on television, across Australia and overseas.
Rachel believes that laughter is a powerful tool, able to communicate a powerful message. With this in mind she’s been invited to appear at events as diverse as hosting a public forum on Climate Change with world-leading Climate Change expert Stephen Schneider, to writing and performing in Diversity Works, an educational video for the Council for Equal Opportunity in Employment and as a special guest performer at a Positive Living Expo for Women with the overall aim to reduce the harm associated with gambling.
With her unique ability to connect with an audience, Rachel is also a superb corporate speaker and MC. According to Andrea Jones, the Editor of Home Beautiful magazine, “Rachel’s presentation was funny and, especially important, it was relevant. We have been inundated with compliments on the success of these awards and it is true to say that Rachel's performance made us, the client, look good.”
And Sarah Davies, Partnership & Marketing Coordinator, City of Whittlesea had this to say, “I greatly appreciated the amount of effort she put into her research and the relevance of all her topics to the theme of our day, which was celebrating the achievements of women within the local government sector.”

- It is the offbeat observation, the incisive knack of showing up everyday events for the ludicrous pantomimes they really are that separate the women from the girls. In this department Rachel Berger is a real Star...

- Ms Berger gave a very entertaining and witty performance which engaged the audience and reflected well on the exhibition content.

- Rachel Berger is the consummate performer - vibrant, entertaining and totally in tune with her audience. She was definitely the highlight of the evening for us and it would be our pleasure to welcome her back to a future venue.
Australian Hotels Association
- Rachel was really helpful and good. Some comedians just do their standard material, but Rachel researched really well. And even against all the odds, when the ads on which she'd based a lot of material were unexpectedly NOT shown to the audience just before she came on, she had to 'wing it' and did really really well. She didn't even get precious, either, unlike some others…
"Sandra, it has been DELIGHTFUL working with you."
