David and Lisa Koch in Concert KOCHS BACK IN ASHLAND - SUNDAY JUNE 5 Wacky Seattle singer/comedian Lisa Koch and her talented musician/actor brother David return to their hometown Sun June 5 at 7p for a night of demented songs and stellar harmonies. They will be joined by the Dal Carver Trio and other musical pals. LISA KOCH Picture Tina Fey meets Bette Midler with Joan Jett guitar chops... and you've got Seattle's Lisa Koch. An irreverent singer/comedian, Koch has recorded 4 solo CD's, is one-half of quirky sketch comedy duo, Dos Fallopia, and has shared the stage with the likes of Janis Ian, Lily Tomlin, The Indigo Girls, Kate Clinton, and Steve Martin. Lisa has co-written such warped cabaret shows as "The Carpeters: Uncomfortably Close To You" (with brother David), "Deja Poo" and "Ham for the Holidays: Who's Afraid of Virginia Ham". She has appeared in two one-woman shows at Oregon Cabaret Theatre, composed Off-Broadway musical "27, Rue de Fleurus", appeared on LOGO and Olivia Cruises, and actually had one of her songs sampled by Jay-Z. DAVID KOCH David Hunter Koch is an actor/director/producer/musician and teacher. David founded the legendary Cabaret de Paris in Seattle, and has performed and directed at ACT, Seattle Rep, Intiman, 5th Ave, Milwaukee Rep, MetroStage, and more. He is currently the director of popular children's theater camp, SingOut Seattle, and freelances around the country as a director and producer.

Lisa later joined rock band In Flight, and toured with local singer Lisa Spencer. David formed his own band (Scat), and toured the west coast.
