Stand Up For The Weekend with Olga Koch featuring Jacob Hawley and compere Clint Edwards
Fast-rising star Olga Koch is a Russian-born stand-up comedian, writer and actor, now living in the UK. She has only been performing since 2016 and has already made a huge impact on stage, on TV and on the radio. She was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018, Best Show at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2020, and long-listed for Best Stand Up Show at the National Comedy Awards in 2021.
Olga has appeared frequently 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). Her audio work includes the Radio 4 special Fight, the Radio 4 series OK Computer and the Human Error podcast on BBC Sounds.
Olga’s stand-up is packed with jokes concerning all manner of subjects, but principally as the outsider casting a satirical eye over British culture and lifestyles. She has also recounted in glorious detail how she tackled the notoriously parochial British Citizenship Test.
