Lydia Popovich is a SF-based comedian. Her anecdotal humor and vivid storytelling make her a unique voice in a sea of dick jokes.
She produces and hosts an all female stand-up showcase in the Bay Area called Ladies Love that takes place the second Tuesday of each month at The Layover in Oakland.
She's a paid regular at Rooster T. Feathers, San Jose Improv, Punch Line SF, Punch Line Sacramento and Cobb's Comedy Club.
She placed second in the 2014 She Devil Comedy Competition and has been featured in SF Sketchfest 2013, 2014 and 2015. As well as the Women In Comedy Festival 2013 and Cape Fear Comedy Festival 2014. She recently performed 4 minutes of stand-up on Creepy KOFY Movie Time and taught Derek Waters how to take a Jell-O shot on Comedy Central's Drunk History.
She's opened for certified headliners Maria Bamford, Paul Rodriguez, Wendy Liebman, Rob Delaney, Jimmy Pardo, Aisha Tyler, Michael Kosta, Wil Anderson, Dwayne Perkins, Jasper Redd, John Wing, Brooks Wheelan, Beth Stelling, Brad Williams, Moshe Kasher, Michael Yo, Jackie Kashian, Marga Gomez, Ngaio Bealum and John Roy.
Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters once touched her arm and said, "Hey, you're pretty funny."
The only things that bring her more joy than her cat* and comedy are Dolly Parton and brunch.
