Elie is especially skilled at setting you up with a warm smile and an “awwww”-inducing story only to yank the carpet from under you.”

“ A darling of a show…”
Capital Critics Circle (Ottawa)
“ A dynamic performance, moving easily between melancholy and exuberant, conspiratorial and defiant, precious and lewd..”

Sh!t I’m in Love With You Again traverses the many manifestations of love from wide-eyed youthful idealism to first love then to the challenges of marriage and parenthood. Rachelle plays the characters of her life—her parents, her therapist, her lovers and various snotty children to name a few. An autobiographical story that is punctuated by Elie and Jackson’s captivating original tunes. This inspired show articulates the kind of thoughts we’ve all had in our relationships but are usually hesitant to express. A glamorous set and glittery costume changes also add to the story and reveal the next challenge of love.
Elie started doing the Ottawa Frineg Fetsival in 2001 and has has brought four original one-woman shows to the festival. She won an Outstanding Comedy Award at The Ottawa Fringe Festival for JOE : The Perfect Man directed by Adam Lazarus. She has opened for Ron James, Trevor Boris, Mike MacDonald and is now resident comedian for the Cracking Up The Capital Comedy Festival.
