Picture a fusion of Bette Midler, Lily Tomlin, and Joan Jett... and you’ve got Lisa Koch. An irreverent Seattle singer/comedian, Koch (“Coke”) is a deliciously twisted mix of comedy, theater, and demented songs. She has 4 solo recordings, is one-half of hilarious sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia ("My Breasts Are Out of Control"), 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, Heart, Kate Clinton, and Suzanne Westenhoefer.
She has been a featured act at the National and Michigan Women's Music Festivals, Bumbershoot, and the Vancouver Comedy Festival. 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: Lard Potion No. 9.” She also finds time to work as an actor, appearing "The Vagina Monologues,” "Dirty Blonde,” and as the Wicked Witch of the West in “The Wizard of Oz” (5th Ave Theatre, Seattle). She performs regularly on Olivia Cruises, has been seen on LOGO, and is the recipient of a Just Plain Folks Award. She has composed an Off-Broadway musical about Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas (“27, Rue de Fleurus”), had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z, and she and her music appear in recent documentary, “Two in a Million”. Koch’s CD, “Tall Cool Drink” contains the viral hit, “I’m a Middle-Aged Woman.”
“Hearing Seattle’s Lisa Koch is one of life’s wickedest pleasures… her brand of absurd confessional comedy is clearly resonating with millions of fans.”

"...Lisa Koch picks up where Bette Midler left off..."
- Music Connection
"Koch seems to have that sense of joi de vivre that makes her instantly likeable. She's an out lesbian with a universal appeal…"
