Picture Tina Fey meets Bette Midler with Joan Jett guitar chops... and youve got Lisa Koch. An irreverent Seattle singer/comedian, Koch (Coke) is a deliciously twisted mix of comedy, theater, and demented songs. She has 5 solo recordings, was one-half of hilarious sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia ("My Breasts Are Out of Control", "Ham for the Holidays"), and is an alumnus of cult quartet Venus Envy ("I'll Be A Homo for Xmas"). She has shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, including Steve Martin, Dave Brubeck, Janis Ian, The Indigo Girls, Holly Near, and Kate Clinton. She's proud to report that one of her songs has actually been sampled by Jay-Z. |
Koch has been a featured act at the National and Michigan Women's Music Festivals, Bumbershoot, and the Vancouver Comedy Festival. Lisa has co-written such warped shows as "The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You," Twos Company, Im a Crowd, "Deja Poo," and Ham for the Holidays: Lard Potion No. 9. She also finds time to occasionally work as an actor -- "The Vagina Monologues, "Dirty Blonde, and as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz (5th Ave Theatre, Seattle).
She is the composer of Off-Broadway musical 27, Rue de Fleurus, is the recipient of a Just Plain Folks Award, and she and her music appear in documentary, Two in a Million. She performs regularly on Olivia Cruises, and has been seen on LOGO. Kochs CD, Tall Cool Drink contains the viral hit, Im a Middle-Aged Woman.
