Event description

Description

Marriage, kids and getting older. What's so funny about that? Bay Area comedienne Rachael Berman will take you into her chaotic family life and make you laugh until you pee.

This special San Francisco comedy event will also feature the world premiere of West Coast Rachael, a new sitcom based on Rachael's comedy and set in Silicon Valley.

When the rest of world thinks about life in Silicon Valley, they picture flying cars and jet packs. Or at least think we’re all riding in driverless Teslas. For the majority of us who live here, we know the truth. There’s an underbelly to the heart of technology. Rachael McMartin and her family are the poster children for it.

West Coast Rachael is a new sitcom that takes on the side of Silicon Valley nobody wants to talk about. It’s one of the most expensive places on earth. And one of the busiest. How in the world do people who aren’t tech billionaires make it work?

Rachael McMartin is an LA standup comic who returned home to the Bay Area after the death of her father. The whole thing was supposed to be temporary. Flash forward a dozen years and Rachael is married to a struggling contractor, has two neurotic kids and deals with her Jewish mother, a woman trapped somewhere between the Summer of Love and trying to remember where she parked her car. As Rachael turns 40, she realizes she has one last chance to break out. Between her family, the former Israeli interrogator who is her therapist and her friends and frenemies, she has her work cut out for her.

West Coast Rachael is a comedy about real life being lived in the shadow of Google, Apple and Facebook. Told through the eyes of someone who can barely access Siri.

West Coast Rachael Executive Producer and head writer Jeff Rosenplot opens for Rachael. Rosenplot is a novelist, screenwriter and comedian living in the Bay Area. He is the author of Water, Here There Be Dragons, Midwestern Love Songs, the play The Transitional Man and the new novels The First Year and Fierce. Learn more about him (and pick up some of his books - there will be a test later) at www.jeffrosenplot.com.
