Luisa Omielan - LIVE!

Sunday 29th October 2017

This show is no longer the originally booked and listed ‘Am I Right Ladies?!’ show.
Due to recent events in Luisa’s life, the content of her touring shows has changed and they now contain much more sensitive material. Luisa is honouring the bookings that have been made with what feels she can do on stage, but she will now be discussing topics such as bereavement, cancer, palliative care and cannabis. Understandably, some people may find this distressing or upsetting, but others may find it helpful and comforting.
Thank you for your support, Luisa will see you soon.
