What Would Beyoncé Do?!




Stand-up comedian Luisa Omielan's story of how she turned her life around with one simple mantra: What Would Beyoncé Do?!

You know when you find yourself approaching thirty and your dreams are broken? You've got a temping career going nowhere, a student debt that’s mounting and you've just had to move back into your mum’s house.

Then to top it all off, you get absolutely annihilated with heartbreak because of an ex, who is just ‘not ready’ but then manages to be ready, a week later, with someone else.

And it is here, at your lowest point, that one of your best friends decides to remind you that you are the same age as Beyoncé.

FML.

Luisa Omielan is a stand-up comedian who turned her life around after she answered the mantra every person needs in their life: What Would Beyoncé Do?!

Hilariously funny, wonderfully uplifting and brutally honest, Luisa's memoir shows us all that there is no situation in which Bey can’t save the day.

Her debut solo show What Would Beyonce Do?! was an underground smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and has become one of the most successful debut shows to come out of Edinburgh.

Praise for What Would Beyoncé Do?!

“A hugely entertaining read.”

Chortle

“Very funny ... packed with life wisdom.”

Stylist

“Bracingly candid ... brutally funny.”

Metro

“Well worth a read. Borrowing some bits from its namesakes’ set and other bits from Luisa’s life experiences it’s the closest you can come to actually getting to one of her shows.”

The Debrief

“Luisa’s bold and wonderful personality bursts forth from this book ... it’s touching, encouraging and filled with Luisa’s great observations about how the patriarchy makes victims of us all and how silly that is.”

Funny Women

“Riotously entertaining comic memoir.”
