Ham for the Holidays: Ham-ageddon!
HAM FOR THE HOLIDAYS: HAM-AGEDDON!
November 30-December 30, 2012
"The end result is a two-hour love note sent from two wildly talented women to Seattle and its 600,000 residents. You'd be a fool to miss it." --The Stranger (12/5/12)
Starring Peggy Platt and Lisa Koch (Dos Fallopia)
With Michael Oaks and Bruce Hall
Directed by David Koch
Dos Fallopia (Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt) figure that because the world is toast soon, it's a perfect time to roll out some of their very favorite moments from past "Hams". Toss in some new tunes and sketches, and "Ham-ageddon" is THE place to grab some cheap laughs before Doom (the show is optimistically scheduled after End Times).
Country duo The Spudds spice up Mama's love life on talk show, "The View from a Double-Wide";
S.B. Tullybuck's trainees learn the ropes in "Barista Boot Camp";
Lounge lizards The Colonel and Shenille croon on the West Seattle Water Taxi;
Nonagenarian blues singer The Matrons of Blues whip up a blender full of miracle drink;
The tiny Sequim Gay Men's Chorus sing their hits with Pride;
Craft Lady and Sister Mary Agnes offer wedding alternatives at The Nup Shack;
Heartwood Mac rocks out;

Koch and Platt have collaborated as sketch-comedy partners for 22 years, and have penned shows like Deja Poo, Pretty Girls, Not Too Bright, Twin Sisters of Different Cul-de-sacs, Desperate Spuddwives, and Lard Potion No. 9. A London Connection review declared, "Could they be the long lost love of Doris Day and Divine? Big, brash, and completely mad...," and a San Francisco Bay Times reviewer proclaimed, "...two of the funniest, most irreverent comedians I've seen in years."
When they're not performing together, the two women pursue busy solo careers. Koch has recorded four solo CD's, , performs regularly on Olivia Cruises, had a song of hers sampled by JayZ, and composed the music for Off-Broadway show "27 Rue de Fleurus". Platt is well known to Seattle audiences as a standup comic, radio personality, and actor/playwright (Fat Girl Follies, Rocky Horror Show, Holiday Survival Game Show).
