Birth Place: Los Angeles, California

If the amateur sketch artists of the world ever needed evidence that the silly Internet videos they put together with friends weren't a complete waste of time, they got that much in Rachel Bloom. The writer and performer broke out with musical comedy skits like "F*** Me Ray Bradbury" (2010), ultimately turning her Internet stardom into a television career. One of Bloom's many web sketches became the TV series "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (The CW 2015-), proving that good comedy, no matter how unique or obscure, can indeed find its audience. Rachel Bloom was born on April 3, 1987 in Manhattan Beach, California. She studied theater and practiced sketch comedy writing at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. After graduation in 2009, Bloom continued said pursuits through the Upright Citizens Brigade improvisational comedy troupe. While Bloom took acting roles in films like "Bob vs. Society" (2009), most of her early notability accompanied her original musical Internet videos like "F*** Me Ray Bradbury" (2010) and "I Steal Pets" (2011). Bloom's Internet popularity earned her work writing for television. She contributed sketches to "Robot Chicken" (Adult Swim 2005- ) between 2012 and 2014 before landing her very own series. One of Bloom's web series was a big enough phenomenon to warrant interest in a television adaptation. Bloom created the musically-inclined comedy series "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" (The CW 2015- ), on which she starred in the title role.
