Rachel Sommer: The World’s Funniest Optometrist*
She’s a comic by night, mild mannered Optometrist by day. Winnipeg addition Rachel Sommer has been trying to spread both laughter and moderately improved eyesight around Manitoba.
What’s up, you ask?
Dr Sommer just performed as part of a fundraiser for the Red Cross Society Phillipines relief effort. So happy to be able to help!
Rachel will be in Carman, Manitoba on December 6 as part of a private Christmas party/fundraiser for the Odds and Ends. Looking forward to making you laugh!
She has been invited to the 1st Funny Women Festival in Victoria, BC in February 2014. So honoured to be part of this inaugural event!
Rachel is delighted to be performing for the Ontario Association of Optometrist at their annual symposium in Nigara Falls in April 2014. She loves performing for optometrists. They get her. They really get her.
Rachel has also created a TV pilot that is being filmed by Yerstory Productions in December/January with the intention of pitching it to the networks at the Banff Media Festival in 2014. And yes, it is the first optometry based TV pilot! I write what I know, people.
*While Rachel does in fact believe she is the world’s funniest Optometrist we are in no way suggesting the unfunniness of others in the same profession. Any challenges to said title may be submitted by written request and will be promptly addressed by formal invitation to a duel.
