Girl Walks Into a Bar

Rachel Dratch was on Saturday Night Live for seven years.

She coined the character--and now classic phrase--Debbie Downer; created the beloved Boston Teens, and was Will Ferrell's spiced-meats eating lovah in the now famous hot tub skits.

When SNL's head writer Tina Fey created the pilot for 30-Rock--Dratch was cast as Jenna, a role that ultimately went to Jane Krakowski and resulted in a media-made semi-scandal.

And then ... well ...

What ever happened to Rachel Dratch?

Girl Walks Into a Bar is the answer to that question, and it's an answer that's both funny and endearing. If you're looking for raucous and irreverent comedy, ala Chelsea Handler--this is not that. But if you'd like a glimpse inside the mind of an upbeat and optimistic comedian who did not follow the SNL path to superstardom and is totally (no, seriously) cool with it, this is a quick and delightful read. 

Though Dratch touches on her early years, when she first became enamored with SNL, she doesn't linger there. She offers us an awe-filled taste of what it was like behind-the-scenes at SNL, and then ventures forth into the real world, where her life has taken an unexpected but satisfying turn.

I like Rachel Dratch after reading this book, and I think you will too.

Finally, do not make the father of the groom speech too long, you don't want to bore people but rather give advice, add some humor and then finish and wish them the best of luck with their marriage. facebook.com

Ever watch Saturday Night Live when Rachel Dratch pretends to be Barbara Walters and says, "Camera-man! My filter!" and then all of a sudden her face turns blurry? Well that's what my pictures are looking like., so any cleansing advice is very much appreciated. regards, Castelli Sandra

There are two main problems the grooms’ fathers face when it comes to delivering a speech at their son’s wedding. First of all, they are afraid of speaking in public. Second, they have no idea what to talk about during the father of the groom speech
