Before COVID-19 I had BIG PLANS, and they all involved live audiences. I adore performing, and am missing the laughter! These are unprecedented times and artists are being forced to find new ways to connect. We need laughter more than ever and that is after 25 years in the biz I am now available for live streamed shows internationally! I can do solo shows from 10- 60 min, I have 20 min of "coorporate clean comedy", and can also program a full hour of comedy or variety for you. A one hour show would include myself as Emcee and 2-5 other comedians or variety acts depending on your needs and budget. One advantage right now that everyone is home I have access to incredible international talent.
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 light hearted touch to an event.
Response from Rachelle Elie:
Awwww Thanks so much Louise! It was such a pleasure to work with you and an honour to be a part in your wedding day. You have a great family and fabulous friends! I really enjoyed myself. Wishing you and Dino many, many years of love and happiness.
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.
What to Expect
I am a professional stand up comedian and have been making people laugh for the last 25 years. Comedy is what I do best. My comedy tends to be risqué but I can do PG 13 if need be. I do not perform for kids under 13 yrs of age.
I am also a producer and have been putting on comedy/variety shows since the 90's. I can create an evening that will suit your event needs. I have produced evenings for 50-500 so if you provide the audience I can provide the fun! One of the services I provide is a phone call to hammer out all the details so we can best figure out what type of show will meet your budget.
Maybe you want
-an evening of stand up comedy with four comedians & me as your host for a 60-120 min show?
-or me as opener and a big name headliner for a 60-90 min?
-or two opening acts and me as a headliner for a 60-120 min?
-An evening of variety? Music, Magic & Comedy?
-Maybe during cocktail hour you would like a Crooner to entertain your guests before the show starts?
There are so many fabulous possibilities! All of these details factor into my quote so the more detailed you can be the better I can quote you.
Details like :
-how far away you are from Ottawa?
-do you need an intermission?
-How long of a show do you want?
-Am I doing strictly stand up comedy or are there other requirements lie announcements?
These details will affect pricing.
I travel with my own glittery backdrop and can bring sound and lights if necessary for an extra cost.
I want the client to be happy so if the request is to keep the show clean I will respect your wishes so that you are satisfied with your result. Ultimately if the client is happy I am happy.
I adore making people laugh and any opportunity to do what I do best leaves me smiling. With 25 years experience performing and producing shows if you hire me you can rest assured you are in good hands.
Comedian Rachelle Elie has had a very busy summer! She brought her first stand up comedy hour to the Ottawa Fringe Festival and to the prestigious ZooFest /OFF Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal. Also after doing stand up comedy for the last ten years she headlined for the first time at Canada's National Stand Up Club Yuk Yuk's in Ottawa. Rachelle was nominated for Best Break Out Artist with the Canadian Comedy Awards in 2018 and has been a supporting act for legendary Comedians Mike McDonald and Tommy Chong. She has participated in the First Air Arctic Comedy Festival in Iqaluit, HubCap Comedy Festival in Moncton, Women In Comedy Festival in Boston twice and JFL 42. Elie was nominated for a Just For Laughs Comedy Award and her CD S#!t I’m in Love with You Again plays regularly on JUST FOR LAUGHS radio.
Also after a hot run at the illustrious Zoofest OFF-JFL & Ottawa Buskerfest, Rachelle's variety show Rag Bag Cabaret is coming to the prestigious National Arts Centre for a Halloween. Rag Bag Comedy Cabaret is Toronto's longest running Variety show that started in 1996. Past Rag Bag shows have included Mike MacDonald, Jessica Holmes & Samantha Bee to name a few. Rachelle curates and hosts the show and every show includes some of the country's hottest variety acts including music, magic, comedy & more.
Additional Booking Notes
I require a working microphone(ideally cordless), a spot light at a minimum and ideally a slightly raised stage to perform on.
I travel with a portable 8 X 8 glitter curtain and if the room where you are having your show need a little extra something my curtain certainly makes a ordinary room a little more fabulous. A tall stool is also greatly appreciated.
I have been producing shows for twenty years so if your company does not have access to sound and light equipment I can easily bring my own or rent it for you and include it in the quote.
