Luisa Omielan at Shepherds Bush Empire
15th December 2017
Last night, Luisa Omielan performed the finale show of her tour show ‘Luisa Omielan: LIVE’ at London’s prestigious Shepherds Bush Empire.
With an audience of over 800 people, guests including Dawn French and Shane Allen, and tour support from her gorgeous dog Bernie, Luisa took to the stage to tell the story of the past year of her life.
Luisa’s mother sadly passed away from a short but brutal battle with cancer in July of 2017, after being diagnosed only 7 weeks earlier. She made Luisa promise she would continue doing stand up comedy and making people laugh. So despite her heartbreak, Luisa embarked on a UK tour of a practically unwritten show. A heartfelt, raw and emotional story, peppered with her unique humour. Not even she knew how funny and poignant it would become.
As well as absolutely blowing the roof of one of London’s most beautiful and prestigious venues, Luisa raised over £4,000 in donations from her audience members. All the money will go Helena’s Hospice Foundation, in honour of her mother.
