Growing up Omielan describes herself as “really skinny”, despite eating whatever junk food she wanted. As such, she never really thought about what she looked like until her late twenties, when she was trying to make it in comedy.
“If you only get your comedy fix from television, the name Luisa Omielan may not mean much. But earlier this year a clip of Omielan notched up more than five million Facebook views in two days.”
“There is nobody on the stand-up circuit like Luisa Omielan. And there are no stand-up comedy audiences like a Luisa Omielan audience. Her breakthrough show What Would Beyonce Do?! had fans dancing in the aisles as Omielan clambered through the stalls.”
“Is she right, ladies? She’s *so* right – and inspirational, and hilarious, and sassy and just about the best tonic you could hope for from a comedy show.”
“Beyoncé really is Omielan’s role model. “She’s a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, talented and a hard worker,” says the comedian, “and they’re all things I want to be.” I wouldn’t be surprised if one day Ms Knowles returns the compliment.”
