Seattle singer/comedian Lisa Koch puts on her semi-annual Birthday Bash at The Triple Door Wednesday February 4, featuring hilarious Texas comedian Vickie Shaw, twisted pianist Roxanna Ward, and a host of special guests. Snort-inducing comedy, fabulous music and surprise appearances await for a jam-packed evening of tunes and laughs!
Koch’s talented pals often pop by for this Bash, so there’s no telling who will wander onstage for this wonderfully spontaneous jam. What we do know so far is that these guests have been confirmed: Koch’s pal Peggy Platt (Dos Fallopia, “Ham for the Holidays”), Larry Murante (award winning Seattle singer-songwriter), Jen Todd (3 Track Mind, Laura Love Band), Mel Watson (Fruit, 100th Monkey Records), Alicia Healy (singer-songwriter), David Koch (Cabaret de Paris, Seattle Rep), Ken Boynton and Anna Lauris (ACT, Annaken), and DJ Gommels (ACT, “Ham for the Holidays”).
Texan Shaw is a recovering SOB (Southern Baptist), and has raised three kids as an out lesbian mother. Vickie is a regular on Olivia Cruises, and has been seen on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, LOGO, Showtime, and in the film Laughing Matters More.
Cabaret-comic extraordinaire Ward hails from Laguna Beach, California. Ward is mom, teacher, director, conductor, and a regular performer on Olivia Cruises. She penned the R&B single, “Remember Who You Are” (Phyllis Hyman, Suede).
Koch is best known for her work with loony Seattle sketch-comedy duo, Dos Fallopia (“Ham for the Holidays”), cult quartet Venus Envy (“I’ll Be A Homo For Xmas”), and Seattle cabaret (“The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You”). She has been featured on Olivia and LOGO, is the composer of the off-Broadway musical “27, Rue de Fleurus,” and had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z.
