Post-college, Bloom performed at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York and Los Angeles.[8] She was once roommates with comedian Ilana Glazer after college in Brooklyn.[11]

Career[edit]

In April 2010, Bloom wrote and sang the song, “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury“, which gained a cult following when it was released on Ray Bradbury‘s 90th birthday in 2010.[7] The song was inspired by her favorite Ray Bradbury book, The Martian Chronicles.[12][13] There was a photo of Bradbury posted online that purported to show him watching the video.[14][15] Bloom has worked as a television writer on Allen Gregory and Robot Chicken.[16]

Rachel Leah Bloom (born April 3, 1987)[1][2] is an American actress, comedian and writer,[3] best known for creating, writing and playing the lead role of Rebecca Bunch in The CW comedy-drama series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Television Series Musical or Comedy[4] and a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.[5] She created the Hugo Award-nominated music video “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury“.[6][7]

Early life[edit]

Bloom was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Manhattan Beach,[8] the daughter of Shelli (née Rosenberg) and Alan Bloom.[1][9] Her family is Jewish.[10]

In 2009, Bloom graduated from New York University‘s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA in Drama. While at NYU, Bloom was the head writer and director of the school’s premier sketch comedy group, Hammerkatz. Post-college, Bloom performed at Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York and Los Angeles.[8]

Career[edit]

In April 2010, Bloom wrote and sang the song, “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury“, which gained a cult following when it was released on Ray Bradbury‘s 90th birthday in 2010.[7] The song was inspired by her favorite Ray Bradbury book, The Martian Chronicles.[11][12] There was a photo of Bradbury posted online that purported to show him watching the video.[13][14] Bloom has worked as a television writer on Allen Gregory and Robot Chicken.[15]

On May 13, 2013, Bloom released her first album of musical comedy, Please Love Me, which included the songs “Fuck Me, Ray Bradbury” and “You Can Touch My Boobies”. On November 19, 2013, she released her second album Suck It, Christmas, which featured a comedic look at Chanukah. It included the hit song “Chanukah Honey”.[15] On December 17, 2013, Bloom was the voice of Princess Peach in the song “Luigi’s Ballad”, on Starbomb‘s self-titled debut album.[16]

On May 7, 2015, Bloom filmed a half hour pilot for Showtime with co-executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) and directed by Marc Webb, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.[17] It was eventually picked up by The CW for the fall 2015–16 season.[18] The show became an hour long series with more network-friendly content when it transitioned from cable to network TV[19][20][21] and features musical numbers.[22]

On December 10, 2015, Bloom received a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress In A Television Series – Comedy Or Musical for her work on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.[23] On January 10, 2016, she won the Golden Globe Award in her category.[4] The following week, Bloom won the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.[5]
