Luisa Omielan is the first British comedian to ever receive a BAFTA Breakthrough Award for comedy. She has had three ground-breaking hit shows. First, she asked What Would Beyoncé Do?! (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!); then she asked Am I Right Ladies?! - and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views; and then she turned to politics and got a show on the BBC entitled Politics for Bitches. So the next logical step was for Luisa to bring all of that spark to religion!
At a time when it feels like the world is about to be set on fire and we're asking ourselves why it's all going so horribly wrong, and “what can we do to fix it?”, Luisa's upcoming show God Is A Woman couldn't come at a more important time. Expect Mary Magdalene, dick jokes and her two year old sidekick Bernie, the Bernese Mountain Dog!
Luisa has created a unique genre of comedy that’s a heart-wrenching journey; part rave and part rally. Her shows are uplifting, thought provoking, ahead-of-the-times and damn funny. Cry your eyes out funny. She counts Dawn French, Lenny Henry, Richard Curtis and Ruby Wax as super fans. The Guardian called her "the biggest stand up hit of the decade". The Scotsman said she "should be put on the national curriculum" And The Telegraph hailed her last show "one of the most powerful and provocative hours on The Fringe".
