My name is Olga Koch and I am a comedian. Next year I am going on tour with my show PRAWN COCKTAIL. Prawn Cocktail is a show about how I went to Japan with a stranger I met at a wedding. It was directed by Jet Vevers and I think you'll really like it. It got ★★★★ from The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Scotsman, Chortle, and your younger brother.

Here is a little bit about my past shows:
If/Then is a show about computer science. It was nominated for Best Show at the 2020 Leicester Comedy Festival. You can buy it on vinyl and mp3 via Monkey Barrel Records.
Fight is a show about the Russian privatization. In 2018, I was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards with Fight. The radio version of Fight, co-written by Charlie Dinkin and produced by Matt Stronge, won a Writers’ Guild Award. You can listen to it on BBC Sounds.
My first four shows were all directed by Charlie Dinkin and produced by Berk's Nest.
Here's some other stuff I made:
