BAFTA BREAKTHROUGH BRIT 2018

One of ‘the biggest stand up hits of the decade’

The Guardian

My name’s Luisa Omielan and I’m a stand up comedian, actress, writer and my fans have built me.

I started on the free fringe in Edinburgh with my first lil show called ‘What Would Beyonce Do?!’ I toured that for 5 years, travelled around the world and wrote a book with Random House of the same title. My follow up show was one called ‘ Am I Right Ladies?!’.

I crowdfunded the DVD and released it myself as despite audience petitions, Netflix are stupid (yes i still love my subscription).

One of my opening jokes from that show is about a thigh gap, and now over 40 million people have seen me in my pants. Dreams really can come true. Watch it here.

My third show is called Politics For Bitches which took a different turn to my party shows, but one which was unbelievable to do. It was partly turned into a BBC documentary.

So - Beyonce, Thigh gaps and Politics, Get you a woman who can do all three.

I was the first comedian to receive a BAFTA Breakthrough accolade this year which was so encouraging. Comedy is tough, and its hard out here for a woman who doesn’t like a one size fits all. I manage and look after myself, I would like that to change.

In September of this year, my loving, gorgeous fans crowdfunded my first off Broadway run in NYC.

It is for and because of them that I do anything.

Them and Bernie, my Doghter. She’s a girl. P.s God is a Woman. New show. No.4 Religion. Sure. Why not.

My book What Would Beyonce Do?! is now available on Amazon.

What’s it about? Well, you know when you find yourself approaching 30 and you have a temp career going nowhere, student debt that’s somehow not getting any smaller, an ex who’s ‘not ready’ and left you heartbroken, and to top it all off you have to move back home to your mum’s house?

Then here, at your lowest point, your best friend decides to pick that very moment to remind you that you are the same age as Beyoncé.

god is a woman

I'm a Bafta Breakthrough brit bringing a brand new stand up show 'God is a Woman' to the USA for my highly anticipated American debut.

No one invited me, but I have the best fans, and they have crowdfunded this trip. You can see what they did here..


Supported by a bunch of friends, I'm leaving the UK whilst it's currently going a bit mad, and I've decided to flee to the very safe, very grounded, non political haven that is America.

'God Is A Woman' is my new show. My previous ones were about Beyonce, Thigh Gaps and Politics, so get you a girl who can do all 4!

My USP is making you laugh one second and cry the next, expect Mary Magdalene and dick jokes. I'm the most famous British female comedian you've never heard of, and if that's isn't enough, I'm bringing my 2 year old sidekick - Bernie, the Bernese Mountain Dog to the glorious American stage.

Come and be part of the journey.
