Oh my god. Who is she?

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.


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. 

In 2019, Olga performed her second solo Edinburgh Fringe show, If/Then, at Monkey Barrel. If/Then was also directed by Charlie Dinkin and also produced by Berk's Nest. Come see If/Then on tour in 2020! (please)
