Profile Bio Text
Rachel Susan Dratch (born February 22, 1966) is an American actress, comedian, producer, and writer. Born and raised in Lexington, Massachusetts, she graduated from Dartmouth College in 1988 and moved to Chicago, Illinois, to study improvisational theatre at The Second City and ImprovOlympic.
Her breakthrough came on the NBC television show Saturday Night Live (SNL), where she was a cast member from 1999 to 2006. Besides her work on SNL, she has appeared as a guest star in television shows such as The King of Queens and 30 Rock, as well as films such as Click and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. In 2012, she published her autobiographical book Girl Walks Into a Bar: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters and a Midlife Miracle. She also portrayed the museum guard in Sesame Street's The Cookie Thief.
Dratch was born in Lexington, Massachusetts, the daughter of Elaine Ruth (nÃ©e Soloway), a transportation director, and Paul Dratch, a radiologist.
Her younger brother, Daniel, is a television producer and writer, most recently on Anger Management. Dratch grew up the "class clown type", attending William Diamond Middle School and Lexington High School in Massachusetts. She has said that even in her high school's plays she gravitated towards participating in comedies over dramas.
Dratch attended the National Theater Institute at The Eugene O'Neill Theater Center in the fall of 1986, and graduated from Dartmouth College in 1988, where she majored in drama and psychology and was a member of the improvisational comedy group "Said and Done".
Both of Dratch’s parents were Reform Jews. Dratch attended Hebrew school and had a Bat Mitzvah. She is non-observant as an adult, and instead characterizes the faith she was born into as part of her cultural heritage.
As she discusses in her book, Girl Walks Into a Bar ... , Dratch met John Wahl, a Californian consultant in the natural foods industry, in a bar in 2009. Six months later, Dratch learned she was pregnant, and on August 24, 2010, gave birth to a boy, Eli Benjamin. In an October 2010 interview, Dratch told People that her pregnancy at age 44 shocked her, because she “had bought into all this stuff about, ‘Once you’re over 40 ...’” and had “gone through the whole process of letting go of [the idea of having kids.]” Wahl has since moved to New York City to be closer to Dratch and their son.
