“Rachel Berger is well known as a comedian, a performer who delivers rapid-fire lines with assertive and acerbic virtuosity. In Hold the Pickle, however, she leaves the microphone behind to paint an intimate portrait of her parents' life story, and by extension her own cultural heritage. Scores of characters come to life, each crafted with affection and wry observation. But this is no mere sentimental nostalgia trip, and Berger's honesty in exploring the gamut of family life is a key factor in the success of Hold The Pickle.” \r\nThe Age
\r\n“She could make the Sphinx crack a smile.” \r\nThe Sun Herald, Sydney
"Berger, queen of stand-up satire and dominatrix extraordinaire of audiences." \r\n \r\n The Australian
