Rachel Sommer: The World’s Funniest Optometrist*

She’s a comic by night, malady mild mannered Optometrist by day. Winnipeg addition Rachel Sommer has been trying to spread both laughter and moderately improved eyesight around Manitoba.


UPDATE: Rachel has relocated to ADELAIDE, medicine AUSTRALIA as of OCT 2015


What’s up, you ask?

It has been a crazy year of having a baby (yes, another. 3 now) and moving internationally to Adelaide, Australia. But, Rachel has landed back on her feet and the comedy scene has lured her back in once again.

Wednesday, April 13th, Rachel will be hosting the Wallis Cinema Mitcham Girls Night Out featuring THE BOSS with Melissa McCarthy. These nights are a hoot and sell out quickly so be sure to get your tickets here.

Rachel will also be part of Cranker Comedy Ladies Comedy Night on May 3rd at 8:30pm at the Crown and Anchor (196 Grenfell Street). Details here.

Rachel is still plugging her biographical TV comedy series concept HINDSIGHT about an optometrist stand up comedian. It is still currently being reviewed by networks. Look at the hilarious clips here.

*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.
