Picture the triangulated love child of Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, and Karen Carpenter... 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 4 solo recordings, is one-half of hilarious sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia ("My Breasts Are Out of Control"), and is an alumnus of cult quartet Venus Envy ("I'll Be A Homo for Xmas"). She performs at folk and comedy festivals all over the world, and has shared the stage with Steve Martin, Dave Brubeck, Suzanne Westenhoefer, Kate Clinton, and Janis Ian.
Lisa has co-written such warped shows as "The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You," "Meet the Bouffants" and Ham for the Holidays: Swine, Women and Song. She performs regularly on Olivia Cruises, has been seen on LOGO, and she tours her one-woman cabaret show, Twos Company, Im a Crowd. Most recently, she composed a new musical about Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas (27, Rue de Fluerus), which premiered Off-Broadway in March 2008. Kochs latest CD (Tall Cool Drink) contains the internet hit, Im a Middle-Aged Woman (www.heylisa.com).
