Rachel Dratch is a sketch girl through and through. She's been a part of The Second City, Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, and Saturday Night Live.
Dratch's mother, Elaine, was an energy director. There is no word exactly what an energy director does, but when you copulate with a radiologist you conceive a strange looking, funny daughter who makes enough money to take care of her parents and put them in a nice home. Surely, The University of Phoenix will have an Energy Director, degree available online shortly.
Dratch has appeared in several movies, primarily because she looks weird, including Martin & Orloff, The Hebrew Hammer, Down with Love, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, and Click, to name a few. She also has joined fellow SNL cast members on A.S.S.S.S.C.A.T.: Improv which aired September 7, 2005, on the Bravo channel. Dratch has also made television appearances on NBC's Third Watch and in a recurring role on King of Queens. Dratch wrote, directed, and performed in the short film The Vagina Monologues Monologues and also participated in a workshop for Legally Blonde: The Musical in the role of Paulette, but did not follow the production to its later San Fransisco or Broadway incarnation.
