Lydia Popovich hails from San Francisco, CA. Her anecdotal humor and vivid storytelling make her a unique voice in a sea of dick jokes. On stage, she is a force to be reckoned with bringing energy and unparalleled confidence to each performance. SF Weekly named her the #1 Artist to Watch in 2016 describing her humor as "Hilarious and brutally honest" stating "Her comedy does more than make us laugh; it also makes us think."
She's a featured performer at Improv Comedy Clubs, Punch Line SF, Punch Line Sacramento, Rooster T Feathers and Cobb's Comedy Club. Her comedy can be heard on popular comedy podcasts Daily Zeitgeist, The Dork Forest, Put Your Hands Together (Feral Audio), Guest List, Sounds of America (Audible Channels) and Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction (Nerdist). Lydia tours nationally and internationally having performed as far away as Singapore, Berlin and London.
Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters once touched her arm and said, "Hey, you're pretty funny!" Lydia currently lives in Los Angeles. The only things that bring her more joy than comedy are Dolly Parton and brunch.
