Luisa Omielan, the most famous British comedian you’ve never heard of, brings her fourth solo comedy show, God Is a Woman, to the SoHo Playhouse through October, and as the limeys like to say, it’s bloody brilliant then, innit?
Ms. Omielan, the first British comedian to ever win a BAFTA Breakthrough Award for Comedy, has crafted a career on tackling a topic and running with it to its ultimate end. She first gained media attention with her debut show What Would Beyoncé Do?! and followed it with the solid hit, Am I Right Ladies?!, straight talk, woman to woman. Then she turned her attention to the legislature and landed a hit BBC show, Politics for Bitches. Friends and fans helped her crowdfund the money for her American debut.
