My name’s Luisa Omielan and I’m a stand up comedian. I wrote a joke about the thigh gap, and now over 30 million people have seen me in my pants. Dreams really can come true.
I’ve got two solo shows, my debut was called ‘What Would Beyonce Do?!’ and the follow up ‘ Am I Right Ladies?!’.
My third is gonna be called ‘Famous with a Baby’ and I am not writing it until its writes itself.
I crowdfunded a recording of my show! It’s available for download here.
I’m also delighted to announce a very special one off gig…Vday Party!
Oh and I’m on tour throughout December, come and say hello .
A manifesto. Contains strong language and adult themes. 18 only.

‘My Favourite is Luisa Omielan whose show should be compulsory viewing’ Kate Copstick – The Scotsman
It’s back, it’s legendary; it’s THE best place to be on Valentines. Once a year I like to do something extra special. It’s becoming a bit of a tradition, that on Valentine’s Day, I do a show, followed by a massive after party. 2016 will be no different! So I am back for one night only: “What Would Beyoncé Do?!” Followed by an after party! Saturday Feb 13th so Saturday is for belly laughs and gyrating on the dance floor and you still get to do the whole candlelit or crying thing on the Sunday.

My solo shows are like events and can be found on my tour dates, be prepared to PARTY! ‘Am I Right Ladies?!’ sold out for the full run of Edinburgh 2014, received 5 star reviews, and is currently on tour. It follows ‘What Would Beyoncé Do?!’ which has been called “One of the top UK comedy shows of the last decade” by the Guardian newspaper.
A manifesto of booty, sex, mental health & rom coms. It also has one of the best jokes about thigh gaps ever written.
‘Should be part of the curriculum’ Kate Copstick
What Would Beyoncé Do?! Is the most successful debut show to come out of the Edinburgh Fringe, a phenomenal word of mouth smash hit. The original party with jokes in. I’m bringing it back for ONE night only with an after party too – on 13th February 2016. Get your tickets now.
As well as the ‘ Am I Right Ladies?!’ tour, Luisa will be regularly playing gigs at venues nationwide.
“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.”
