The Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee and self-proclaimed Taylor Swift of the London comedy scene Olga Koch is back! This time she's getting more intimate, more experimental and more heartbroken. The acclaimed storyteller shares one fateful turn that changed her life forever the only way she knows how - through the medium of computer programming (which she studied at university and, like, barely ever brings up) "slick, impeccably timed and every joke lands" *****Broadway Baby ****The Telegraph "unique, interesting, and very funny" ****The Skinny ****The List ****The Arts Desk ****One4review
Olga Koch does stand-up comedy onstage and creates cathartic performance art in the privacy of her own home. She has trained at the UCB Theatre in New York, as well as the Soho Theatre and the Free Association in London. Along with fellow Soho Young Company comics, she runs Joy Multiplication, a monthly comedy night in London. She also occasionally co-hosts TRASHFUTURE, a podcast about how the future is trash. In 2018, she was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her debut hour, Fight. Fight was directed by Charlie Dinkin, produced by Berk's Nest and originally performed at Pleasance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. While it contains a short section on martial arts, Fight has nothing to do with physical fighting.
Directed by Charlie Dinkin
"I honestly can't believe this is her debut hour: the performance is slick, impeccably times and every joke lands."
"A very confident debut...an assured and endearing hour of stand up storytelling."
"An impressive debut...unique, interesting, and very funny."
