We hired Rachelle for a virtual employee appreciation event. She was very easy to work with! Rachelle took the time and made it a point to learn about us and made mention of things particular to us here and there throughout her act. We had requested a clean PG-13 performance and, as it was the first time for us having a comedian at an event, we were a wee bit nervous, but she came through for us, even checking to see if certain bits in her act might be pushing the envelope. Rachelle's personalization, attention to detail, fabulous funniness and positive energy was a winning combination and just what the doctor ordered. I would highly recommend Rachelle and wouldn't hesitate at all to hire her again for a future event!

Rachelle was so wonderful to work with and super easy going! She was hired for an execute government event and she ensured her content was corporate clean as requested. We had some really positive feedback from the audience, and they really highlighted that laughter is very much needed especially during these uncertain times! thank you Rachelle and we hope to work with you in the near future!!

In addition to her sense of humour, Rachelle is an organizer and clear thinker. As an MC or a stand-up, there are fewer better.

We hired Rachelle for a party for international women’s day. The audience of 200 women were in stitches. Rochelle has a great personality and is a pleasure to work with. We got amazing feedback from our audience after her show. Would highly recommend.

Rachelle was a joy to work with as the MC for my wedding. Notwithstanding her awesome and witty personality, she was organized and, on the ball, when it came to preparing for and fulfilling her role as the MC. She also delivered a smashing comedy skit after our dinner. I would definitely do again and highly recommend her to anyone looking to add a fun and lighthearted touch to an event.

Great energy and enthusiasm! The guests at our fundraiser loved Rachelle, and I had a number of them ask me where I found her.
She held everyone’s attention, and kept her jokes clean, as we had requested due to the demographics of our guests.
hosted by, Rachelle Elie
