Luisa Omielan: God is a Woman

 

Luisa Omielan is the most famous female British comedian you’ve never heard of. She is the first British Comedian to ever receive a BAFTA Breakthrough Award for comedy.

 

She has had 3 ground-breaking hit shows. First, she asked “What Would Beyoncé Do?! ” (sell out across the UK and Australia, is what she would do!), then she asked “Am I Right Ladies?!” and her thigh gap joke went viral with over 45 million views. Then she turned to Politics and got a show on the BBC titled “Politics for Bitches”. So the next logical step is to religion!

 

At a time when it feels like the world is about to be set on fire and we’re asking ourselves why it’s all going so horribly wrong and what can we do to fix it? Luisa’s upcoming show GOD IS A WOMAN couldn’t come at a more important time. Expect Mary Magdalene, dick jokes and a giant Bernese mountain dog.

 

Doors at 7pm. Show start at 8pm.

A brand new stand-up show from one of Northern Ireland’s best comedians, Frazer Robb (as seen on BBC Northern Ireland’s Soft Border Patrol, BBC Radio Ulster’s What Happens in Ulster, and the Great Question podcast).
Frazer turns his fertile comic mind to the pandemic, the brain drain, marriage, NI politics and dog ownership.
Bringing his hilarious brand of wry, playful, dark insights to everyday life, this is the post-lockdown comedy catharsis you need.
Warning – contains adult themes and jokes about dogs.

Jingle Belles: A Family Christmas Spectacular
Dec 23 @ 8:00 pm

This Christmas, local Jingle Belles Sinéad and Tom O’Kelly are uniting for a special one night only cabaret performance in their native Belfast. This event will be jampacked full of your favourite Christmas songs, as well as many beloved showtunes and pop songs, with plenty of irreverent comedy thrown in for good measure.

Though a seasoned actor and singer already, Tom O’Kelly is in the genesis of his career. He has been lucky enough to train at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London for the past three years, where has honed his skills as a classical singer. He has been a soloist in venues across the UK and Ireland, including the Grand Opera House, Belfast, and the Wigmore Hall in London. Aside from classical music, he has begun to make a name for himself in the local musical theatre scene, having participated in several musical workshops and play readings. More recently, he has been a regular gigger in the London cabaret scene. Other passions of Tom’s include drinking Sauvignon Blanc and watching “Murder, She Wrote”.

In recent years, Sinéad O’Kelly has proven to be a tour de force in the international theatre scene, as a soloist, and particularly in opera, all to critical acclaim. Having trained at the National Opera Studio in London, Sinéad has gone on to enjoy a lot of success. In addition to singing leading roles in opera houses from Zurich to Dublin -and everywhere in between- she has also shared the stage with stars such as Cecilia Bartoli, Joyce Didonato, and NI superstar Peter Corry. As a soloist, she has performed in venues all over the world. When not singing at the Royal Albert Hall, Sinéad enjoys completing very difficult jigsaw puzzles and listening to true crime podcasts.
