About

Hi Friends!

I am Rachel LaForce and I would love to coach your improv team or direct your next sketch show! I am passionate about helping performers find their joy through play and their comedy through connection. My teaching experience has taken me all over the US and internationally. I taught various improv and sketch workshops to people of all kinds and ages over a span of 4 years while I was working as a member of The Second City Touring Company. After moving to LA, I continued coaching working with ensembles from Second City Hollywood, teams comprised of UCB students and self made independent teams. In addition to being a member of an iO West (RIP) sketch team, I also directed various sketch teams for other three years. Currently, I teach a handful of workshops I created out of my own experiences both as a performer and a student of comedy. For a full list of the individual workshops I teach; you can visit www.rachelaforce.com and click on HIRE HER.

Below is an additional bio. Thank you for your time, I hope we get to work together and in the meantime, keep playing that jazz baby!

Up next, Rachel can be seen in the Whitney Cummings HBO pilot entitled A LOT. She is also featured in Whitney's directorial feature-debut THE FEMALE BRAIN now available on HULU, iTunes and Delta Airlines. Rachel is also featured in writer/director Anna Fields (Confessions of a Rebel Debutante) newest book & film documentary of the same title; The Girl In The Show: Three Generations of Comedy, Culture and Feminism . You may even catch her as a "cool" mom in Hot Wheels newest commercial "The Drive". You can also see her doing her best straight manning on Chris Webber's Full Court Pranks on TruTV!
