About Us

Hi, I'm Luisa Omielan. I am a stand up comic from the U.K.I love doing one woman shows and for me, they are a party with jokes in, a rally, a call to arms and a demand for action! I have toyed with the idea of doing a podcast based on some of the themes of my stand up shows for some time. As comedy loosens people up and allows us to talk freely about difficult topics. Be that mental health, body image, suicide, cancer, love, relationships, feeling lost and needy. But these shows aint new, its not some bandwagon, they go back to 2012 but the topics are still just as relevant. So i thought it would be nice to try this medium.Expect guests, tangents, content and laughter. Hopefully a few pauses for thoughts too.

Etiquette of the One Night Stand

Conversations - Black Lives Matter

EI wanted to introduce a separate topical podcast more in line with my daily live streams. But it makes more sense to bring in the shows under the Indigo Child Umbrella. When it comes to stand up shows and my outlook on life, I have been blessed to be inspired, nurtured and encouraged by people from the black community. I stand in solidarity. I would not have had my Beyonce show if it wasn't for my Black and Asian audiences who came in their droves and helped me shape that show. It is important for me to talk about, to learn and to educate about things that hurt my audiences, friends, communities and hurt us all. This week, after the murder of George Floyd, a black unarmed man by a white American cop, my beautiful friend Mon Belle posted a video with her thoughts, you can watch it here. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CAxgSDwJNgV/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Here is a conversation with Mon Belle. Mon is a Black British woman based in Dubai running an Events and Entertainment company including the successful clubbing brand Afrocentric and newest F&B venture, Oh Brgr, the first Caribbean inspired burger joint in Middle East. You can see more about Mons Events here: www.wearethoseguys.com For more information on Black Lives Matter and what you can do, visit BlackLivesMatter.com And if you are able to. please support the Minnesota Freedom fund which are supporting legal fees for participants in the protests. https://minnesotafreedomfund.org/
