Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer Nominee 2018
In 2014, Olga Koch’s father got stopped by authorities on the Russian border, which resulted in the most surreal year of her family’s life. In her debut show, the Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Newcomer nominee 2018 will try to dissect this real-life spy drama with nothing but a projector and a ‘unique voiced surely destined for stardom’ (British Comedy Guide). As heard on The Now Show.
Directed by Charlie Dinkin.

'I honestly can't believe this is her debut hour: the performance is slick, impeccably timed and every joke lands.'
'An impressive debut... unique, interesting, and very funny.'
'Hearing this strange-but-true story is worth the ticket price alone.'
'Filled with good gags... this is a very promising debut.'
'Tightly structured, amusing anecdotes and a sense of mild peril.'
