Megan's Head

A place where Megan gets off her head.

Blaise Koch

I have just got home from TheatreSports tonight and seen emails that Blaise Koch has died. Blaise was a fantastic actor, brilliant comic, real teacher and one of the most generous, funny and kind people I had the privilege of working with.

I knew he was sick and I thought about him only a couple of days ago, even though I hadn’t seen him for ages, but I am sad at his passing. Go well Blaise.


My two worst things to be told


early doz


  1. Looking at Blaise’s profile on 24’s Who’s Who website, (information entered, I assume, by Blaise himself), I found – in the Awards section – a line that’s a classic example of both his fantastic sense of humour — and his capabilities, it says – “Nominated, One of 2000 outstanding intellectuals of the 21st Century, 2003” to which all who knew him would say wholeheartedly “Fully, bro!” Go well, Blaise.

    Does anyone know where I can find Blaise’s book?
    I have been searching but to no avail. He was a true spirit and I’m lucky that spoke to him the few times that I did. Farewell Blaise…

    There is a celebration of Blaise’s life being held at Artscape tomorrow, August 8 at 1100.
    I don’t know why I think this but I remember seeing Blaise’s book at Exclusives at the Lifestyle Centre in Kloof Street.

    Thank you for your dedication to Blaise. I hold very dear all the love and madness he gave. Lunatic. Sorry I was not able to attend the celebration.

    I’m sure he would have been proud.

    I got his book from my local municipal library. Not sure if you want to buy it or just read it.


    Have Blaize’s book. Am willing to sell it for R50. or swop it for a video of his memorial service .. did anyone film it .. would have loved to have been there but was, unfortunately, in bed with the ‘flu. Please phone or SMS 084 233 1868.

    I’ll try and find out if anyone filmed it.


    Thanks Megan … someone should have filmed it … Please !!!

    As far as I know it wasn’t filmed. I still have the A.V. presentation which I did for the Memorial Celebration and which was the main “Background” of the service. Megan you can contact me and maybe we can burn it on disks for those who want it. It is a very large file to ‘sommer’ email.

    Thanks Alfred. I think that’s a great idea.
