Peggy Platt

Actress, comedian

Peggy Platt is a Seattle native and has been performing since she was 16, first at the Bathhouse Theatre. At 21 she began a career as a stand-up comic. In 1985 she won the prestigious Seattle International Stand-up Comedy Competition, the only woman to have won to date. As a comic, she's been the opening act for the likes of Cyndi Lauper, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Kathy Griffin and Puppetry of the Penis, and has been voted "Seattle’s Best Comic" by Seattle Weekly’s "Best of Seattle" poll nine times.

As an actress, Peg has graced the stages of ACT, Empty Space, SCT, TAG, Alice B. Theatre and was a six-year company member of Seattle TheatreSports. Her one-woman show, Fat Girl Follies, was called "one of the 10 best theater experiences of 2001" and she was hailed as "some kind of genius."

Peg was featured in the film Harry and the Hendersons and the soon-to-be-released Visioneers. In 1989 she began a lifelong friendship and collaboration with the talented Lisa Koch, penning close to 40 shows. Look for her latest creation, Fat Girl Follies, Redux, in the spring.

Dos Fallopia

An outrageous kamikaze comedy duo, Dos Fallopia (Lisa Koch and Peggy Platt) combine music, sketch comedy, improvisation, razor sharp wit, and general lunacy to produce an evening of wickedly funny commentary from a woman's point of view.

Performing together since 1990, Lisa and Peggy have logged 17 holiday ventures together, more than 25 full-length shows, and countless international touring dates. They have toured their sold-out stage shows, Twin Sisters of Different Cul-de-sacs, Pretty Girls, Not Too Bright, and Desperate Spuddwives in theaters in London, New York, San Francisco, LA, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis and Indianapolis. They were named "Local Treasures" (Seattle Times, Best of Seattle Theater), and their video, Pretty Girls, Not Too Bright, has received rave reviews.
