Olga Koch is a Russian stand-up comedian with an American accent based in London. I saw her on a bill at Always Be Comedy in May 2018 and January 2019 and then again performing at The Big Funny Fest at Richmond in June 2019. Providing a fascinating insight into her upbringing in Russia, her comedy was very relevant, and her confidence knew no bounds.
I watched Koch again when she was a guest for Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of The Fringe at the Edinburgh Festival in August 2019. She was naturally capable at interacting with the crowd, frequently confident and engaging with audience members with ease.
To date, having delivered extremely talented sets, Koch’s star is on the ascent and I look forward to seeing the upbeat comedian again soon.
