Olga Koch does stand-up comedy onstage and creates cathartic performance art in the privacy of her own home.
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.
Olga has appeared on Mock the Week (BBC Two), QI (BBC Two), Frankie Boyle’s New World Order (BBC Two), Late Night Mash (Dave), Richard Osman’s House of Games (BBC Two), Guessable (Comedy Central), Question Team (Dave) and your dad’s search history.

Georgia Apsion uses her dry humour to reflect on a life lived spontaneously, without the proper training.
