London’s iconic Soho Theatre is bringing British-Russian standup comedian, writer and actress Olga Koch to Mumbai this month. She’s all set to perform on 15 and 16 April at the Habitat and 20 April at the G5A Warehouse. The comedian has combined four of her acclaimed shows into one, exclusively for Indian audiences. Koch has also roped in Urooj Ashfaq and Sapan Verma as openers for her Habitat shows on 15 and 16 April respectively. For her G5A show, audiences will also get to participate in a Q&A session with Koch and Sumit Naganath, Soho Theatre’s comedy producer in Mumbai.

Koch’s sets will include hilarious anecdotes on what it’s like to be the only woman pursuing a computer science course, how it feels to be the only Russian at an American school, and dealing with things like sex and dating but finding it all “weird”. Mark Godfrey, Executive Director of Soho Theatre, said in a press statement, “we’re thrilled to be bringing Olga to Mumbai for the first time. This is part of Soho Theatre’s wider programme bringing some of the best Indian comedy to the UK, and UK and international comedy to India. We’ve been delighted to host a huge range of Indian performers at Soho Theatre, London–shows coming soon include Zakir Khan, Suhani Shah and Aditi Mittal.”

Olga has performed all four of her solo shows at Soho Theatre including Homecoming, which was also filmed for Soho Theatre Live, and is available on Amazon Prime UK. Olga has been nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2018, Best Show at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2020, long-listed for Best Stand Up Show at the National Comedy Awards in 2021 and her Radio 4 show Fight won the 2022 Writers’ Guild Award for Best Radio Comedy. She has also appeared on shows like Guessable on Comedy Central and Frankie Boyle’s New World Order on BBC Two.
