Brilliant comedy show - What would Beyonce Do?

  • This location is shown only to members

 We are going further afield from Tooting and discovering a rare talent and a brilliant comedy show - that is FREE - but she requests donations at the end of the night. I fully intended to put a fiver in, but I ended up putting a tenner. She blew me away with her talent and energy. 

 I doubt you will get to see her again any time soon for this cheaply, as  her rise will be dramatic so do not miss this...

I don't want to tell you anything about this - except that for the modern women  her story hits accurately and wow, she will blow you away. Men, are welcome too - I promise you, you'll be blown away as well. Come for the giggles.  And you will laugh uproariously.

I am only booking 10 tickets - please make sure you can go if you RSVP. The seats have to be reserved and she's already full for the other shows leading up to this date.

The Skinny - 5 stars This is a show performed with the speed and intensity of a meteorite crashing to earth..................watching a raw, natural talent doing something surprising and clever and hugely enjoyable, and knowing that you've just witnessed a star being born.

The Guardian - The success of the hour comes from Omielan's sharp writing and irresistible stage persona – bubbling over with silly voices, bits of improv and physical comedy

Gay times - Judging by the numbers turned away due to a full house, the festival buzz around Luisa Omielan is apparent. In fact when mentioning I was seeing the show I was always met with positive approval, and rightly so, as What Would Beyoncé Do? is the show that is sure to fast track Luisa to wider acclaim.

Omielan’s energy instantly puts you at ease, emanating an unnatural level of confidence that is engaging and infectious. The gags come thick, fast and fabulous, as Omielan preaches her hilarious philosophy to an audience that hangs on every word. Her clumsy physicality and manic vocal impressions cast Omielan as some living cartoon, and yet the material also harbours moments that are heartwarming and affecting. This careful balance is clearly a winning combination.

As the show draws to a close you not only feel ridiculously guilty that talent like this has been offered up free of charge, you also want Omielan as your best friend and life coach.

Please go. I’m sure it’s what Beyoncé would do.

    Wow. Supernova.
    Huge laughter and insight.
    A few tears (totally manly as Sarah and Soraya will no doubt testify).
    What a massive talent!
