Rachel Troy (she/her)

Actor, Director

Rachel Troy is an actor, director, comedian, and clinical therapist based in Los Angeles and New York. She has studied acting for over a decade at The Lee Strasberg School in New York City and was also trained at The Moscow Art Theater in Russia. Comedy training includes The Groundling School and The Idiot Workshop here in LA, as well as a lifetime of experience as her mother’s daughter, who is possibly the greatest gift she received from the comedy Gods.

Rachel has worked on a number of experimental theater projects in NYC, including as an assistant to the choreographer for Punch Drunk’s world renowned Sleep No More, as well as Radiohole’s production of Frankenstein at The Kitchen. Recently, Rachel received a grant from the City of Munich, to develop a performance art piece, which will be premiering in Germany in 2025. You can catch her performing an evening of one acts by Shel Silverstein for the month of March 2024 at The Cole Theater here in LA. 

Rachel works as a trauma therapist, which serves as a nice counterbalance to her secret life in comedy, performing clown bits and characters in front of anyone who will watch.
