For those of you (and there are many) still bummed that the long running and beloved Xmas holiday sketch show HAM FOR THE HOLIDAYS didn’t happen this past year due to the death of the also much beloved Seattle comedy legend Peggy Platt who was one half of Dos Fallopia, the comedy team with LISA KOCH as the other hilarious half who created/produced/starred in “Ham”….we feel you. We missed “Ham” and Peggy and Lisa A LOT this past December…it wasn’t the same without them.
So, this year’s annual Lisa Koch Birthday Bash at The Triple Door should be packed with fans who desperately need a snort of Koch to get them through the rest of the year!
For this edition of the Lisa Koch Big Ass Birthday Bash, Lisa will be joined by a truckload of her very talented pals including “Texas comic Vickie Shaw (Comedy Central, Showtime), twisted pianist Roxanna Ward (Olivia), multi-instrumentalist Barbara Higbie (Windham Hill, Trull/Higbie, Olivia)” as well as a slew of local folks.
Special guests include:
- Larry Murante (award winning Seattle singer-songwriter)
- Jen Todd (3 Track Mind, Laura Love Band)
- Mel Watson (Fruit,100th Monkey Records)
- Alicia Healy (Seattle singer-songwriter)
- David Koch (Cabaret de Paris, ACT, Sing Out Seattle)
- Quincy Koch (Lisa’s awesome singin’ niece)
- Ken Boynton and Anna Lauris (ACT, Annaken)
- Jason Edwards (drums)

She has 5 solo recordings, has been featured on Olivia and LOGO, is the composer of Off-Broadway musical “27, Rue de Fleurus”, and actually had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z.
Lisa’s crazy pals often pop by for this Bash, so there’s no telling who will wander onstage for this wonderfully spontaneous jam.
