Rachel Dratch (born February 22, 1966) was an SNL castmember.

Rachel joined the show a few weeks after the season premiere in 1999, and was a featured player for two seasons.

Rachel's most well-known character is Debbie Downer, SNL's most depressing character since Michael O'Donoghue's Mr. Mike. Debbie constantly points out upsetting current events (example: When asked if she wanted steak for breakfast, she said, "I'm not taking any chances, since that Mad Cow's going around (paraphrasing)"). Rachel has also played many other celebrities, characters, and other characters, such as Harry Potter.
