Seattle singer/comedian Lisa Koch hosts an evening of Pride comedy, featuring hilarious Texas comedian Vickie Shaw, demented pianist Roxanna Ward, and special guest Barbara Higbie. Snort-inducing comedy, fabulous music and a rumored appearance by the reclusive Barstow Gay Men’s Chorus.
Picture Tina Fey meets Bette Midler with Joan Jett guitar chops... and you’ve got Lisa Koch. With 4 solo recordings, she is one-half of loony sketch-comedy duo Dos Fallopia (My Breasts Are Out of Control, Ham for the Holidays), and an alumnus of cult quartet Venus Envy (I'll Be A Homo for Xmas). She has shared the stage with Steve Martin, Kate Clinton, The Indigo Girls, Lily Tomlin and more. Koch has been featured on Olivia and LOGO, is the composer of Off-Broadway musical “27, Rue de Fleurus”, and is proud to report that one of her songs has actually been sampled by Jay-Z.
Texan Vickie Shaw is a recovering SOB (Southern Baptist), and has raised three kids as an out lesbian mother. Vickie has been seen on Comedy Central's Premium Blend, LOGO, Showtime, and is a regular on Olivia Cruises. She’s featured in the films “Laughing Matters More” and “I’m Not Your Role Model.”
Cabaret-comic extraordinaire Roxanna Ward hails from Laguna Beach, CA. Ward is mom, teacher, director, conductor, and a regular performer on Olivia. She penned the R&B single, "Remember Who You Are" (Phyllis Hyman, Suede).
Bay Area fave Barbara Higbie is a Grammy-nominated, multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter. She has 13 solo/group recordings to her name, was the first female instrumentalist on Windham Hill, and continues to perform as a soloist, with Windham Hill artists, and in a duo with singer/songwriter Teresa Trull.
