Picture a mashup of Tina Fey, Bette Midler, and Joan Jett... and you've got Lisa Koch. An irreverent Seattle singer-actor-comedian, Koch ("Coke") is a deliciously twisted mix of comedy, theater, and demented songs. She has 5 solo recordings, is one-half of hilarious sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia ("My Breasts Are Out of Control", "Ham for the Holidays"), and is an alumnus of cult quartet Venus Envy ("I'll Be A Homo for Xmas"). She has shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, including Steve Martin, Dave Brubeck, Janis Ian, The Indigo Girls, Lily Tomlin, Kate Clinton, and Suzanne Westenhoefer.
She has been a featured act at the Vancouver Comedy Festival, National and Michigan Women's Music Festivals, Bumbershoot and Folklife.
Lisa has co-written such warped shows as "The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You," "Two's Company, I'm a Crowd," "Deja Poo" and "Ham for the Holidays: Jurassic Pork." She also finds time to work as an actor, appearing in "The Vagina Monologues" (Phoenix Theatre, Indianapolis), "Dirty Blonde" (Arizona Theatre Co), and as the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz" (5th Ave Theatre). She had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z, is the recipient of a Just Plain Folks Award (Best Vocal Jazz Song) and is the composer of Off-Broadway chamber musical "27, Rue de Fleurus" (Urban Stages, NYC).
Koch"s CD ("Tall Cool Drink") contains the internet hit, "I'm a Middle-Aged Woman."
