For fans of Seattle comedian/actress PEGGY PLATT, you have a couple different options to remember and honor the legendary funny lady who passed away on April 2nd at age 58. The performer, probably most widely known for her partnership with Lisa Koch as the comedy duo Dos Fallopia and their holiday sketch comedy show Ham For The Holidays a yearly tradition at ACT Theatre for years, was also a frequent contributor to Seattle’s Sandbox Radio, the brilliant live variety theater radio show.
KUOW-FM 94.9 will air an hour long tribute tonight (Thursday, April 12th) at 11pm that features the best of Peggy Platt performing with Sandbox Radio over the years and including some of her outstanding sketches including many she created herself as well as ones written by others. The sketches:
“The Chicks And The Bees”, “Mom’s Diner” by Wayne Rawley, “Zombie Elections PSA”, “Spinster”, “Vermin Notes” by Scot Augustson, “Big Bertha”, “Center For Wooden Boats PSA”, “Dos Fallopia”, “In Like A Lion”, “The Slam Poet”, and “Will Act For Food.”
For those of you who don’t listen to terrestrial radio, you can actually listen to the tribute now on the Internet. Go to the KUOW website to listen.
And, many of Peggy’s peers, family members, friends, and admirers will gather at ACT Theatre, 700 Union Street, on Monday, April 16th at 7:30 pm for a celebration of her life.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Planned Parenthood in Peggy’s name. Go HERE to donate.
A toast to Mary Margaret Platt!
