Winner: Best Comedy, Perth Fringe 2017.
Named 'one of the most exciting emerging talents' and fresh from a total sell-out season at the Melbourne Comedy Festival.
From Newcastle-on-Tyne and one of the brightest young talents on the comedy scene who is beginning to make her presence known across the country. Finishing runner-up in 2014's Funny Women, she went on to make the finals of almost every major comedy competition, including the prestigious BBC New Comedy Award in 2016.
Fresh from performing at both Leeds and Latitude Festival and supporting the likes of Katherine Ryan, Kerry Godliman and Dane Baptiste on tour, this baby faced comic is one to watch out for.
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.
