“How different would the world be if women’s stories had been included more in the Bible?
Did you know that Adam had a first wife before Eve? Her name was Lilith and she left Adam because she wanted to do reverse cow girl and he would only do missionary – they didn’t mention THAT in the creation myth.”
At a time of pandemics and global warming, we all turn to spirituality for hope and purpose, so let’s hear about the true meaning of Christmas and Jesus courtesy of BAFTA winning comedian Luisa Omielan – now that’s a Sunday school we all would have stayed awake in!
Following a successful Off-Broadway run in 2019, comedian Luisa Omielan is excited to finally announce rescheduled dates for her highly anticipated God Is A Woman tour, which kicked off in Belfast this month.
Luisa already has three groundbreaking hit shows under her belt. First, she asked “What Would Beyonce 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. 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 her unique genre of comedy to religion – expect Mary Magdalene and men’s private part jokes!
Luisa has been featured in The Guardian, The Radio Times, Forbes, Vogue, The Metro, Stylist Magazine, The Huffington Post, The Telegraph and countless other publications. She’s been nominated two years in a row for Best Comedy Show at the Melbourne International Festival and loves taking her universal shows around the world. She is also the first comedian to be acknowledged with a BAFTA Breakthrough award.
She 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.
Everything she’s achieved so far has been with a fiercely loyal audience.
Encouraged by her fans, they crowdfunded her to debut God Is A Woman Off Broadway in NYC – now it’s time to bring it home.
Luisa will be accompanied on stage by her partner in crime, Bernie – the funniest Bernese mountain dog on the block.
And the best part? She’s bringing her brand of comedy to Warwick Arts Centre in November! You can book here
