Olga Koch



Olga was born in Russia, her father was actually in Yeltsin’s government, but educated in the West in typical STEM subjects which she uses as material in her sharp observational comedy. She spoke at our own Speaker Dinner

Olga does stand-up comedy onstage and creates cathartic performance art in the privacy of her own home!

She was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for her debut show, Fight, about her family leaving Russia. This was followed by If/Then which was all about computers and love and Homecoming about gaining her UK citizenship, which was recorded as an Amazon Prime stand-up special. Her show Just Friends was one of the best-reviewed shows of the Edinburgh Fringe.

Olga has appeared as a guest on QI, Mock The Week, Late Night Mash, Frankie Boyle's New World Order, Guessable, House of Games, Question Team and the Stand Up Sketch Show.

Olga studied Computer Science at New York University and gained her Masters Degree in the Social Science of the Internet from Keble College, Oxford University. 

She also hosts Bad Advice with Olga Koch on Dave's YouTube channel, Late Night Mash - The Podcast and Human Error for BBC Sounds.

Olga appeared at our New Year Speaker Dinner on 17th January 2023 - for more details: https://www.performingartistes.co.uk/events-post/32
