CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: Episode 22 with Luisa Omielan


Luisa Omielan is a comedian based in London.

In 2012 Luisa performed her debut stand up solo show, What Would Beyoncé Do?! as part of the free fringe at the Edinburgh Festival. The show has since had seven sell out runs at London’s Soho Theatre, it then continued to have a week run in the London West End at the Leicester Square Theatre. A 4-minute clip where Luisa discuses the ‘Thigh Gap’ went viral and has since amassed over 35 million views on Facebook. Her follow up show Am I Right Ladies?! has had a UK tour, received critical acclaim and five star reviews. What Would Beyonce Do?! by Luisa Omielan is published today by Century, priced £14.99.

We talk about why the arts need more funding, the reality of trying to “make it” in the online world and why comedy can save lives.
