'BAFTA Breakthrough' winner, Luisa Omielan, returns to Monkey Barrel Comedy | 'It’s one of the funniest shows at Edinburgh Fringe' - The Telegraph
Thursday April 25th 2024
Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB3)
So you know how like the world doesn’t make any fucking sense. And working hard and doing the right thing no longer seems to cut it. In fact anyone who is in power, seems to be either a self serving, egotistical maniac, or has the moral backbone of a flaccid wet fish. Is it any wonder more women are staying single and choosing not to have children. I mean not, me, not by choice anyway. My single childless status is purely thanks to my cock blocking dog. She is iconic but very protective.
Hi, I’m Luisa Omielan. Following the rules hasn’t worked, I’ve tried. The game just feels rigged. But you can’t say that. Just smile bitch. Write a gratitude journal and manifest. Am I Bitter? Of course I am. Are you Angry? You should be. Is this a comedy show? Absofuckinglutely.
Luisa Omielan is a comedic force of nature. Comedy's first 'BAFTA Breakthrough' winner, four smash hit shows on the bounce, a 'genre defining' special called 'God is a Woman', sold out runs in the West End, a star of Live at the Apollo; she's even been described as masterminding 'one of the biggest stand up hits of the decade' by The Guardian.
Luisa has endured years of people telling her she’s too loud, too crass and too emotional. But on the contrary her audiences tell her she’s incredible, hilarious, life changing and a f*cking superstar. She’s over it, she’s done and she no longer give two fucks. If following the rules in the book don’t work for us any more, maybe it’s time we write some new ones.

Monkey Barrel Comedy is situated in the heart of Edinburgh's Old Town. Our rooms are located at the top end of Blair Street, just off the Royal Mile and can be easily accessed by Bus and Taxi from South Bridge or by foot from either Cowgate or the High Street.
As with many venues in the traditional and historical Old Town, some of our spaces have accessibility limitations. Please contact us in advance (via email to our Box Office at email@example.com) if you have any access requirements, so we can advise on the options available.
MB1 is at ground level and can be accessed via most wheelchairs with some adjustments made for you outside the venue. Please let us know in advance of buying a ticket (via the Box Office) so we can confirm and be prepared for your arrival.
