Making her break in comedy with no agent or promoter, Luisa chased her comedy ambitions in Edinburgh's Free Fringe five years ago performing stand up with friends. Now with two crafted shows under her belt she is ready to share her inspirational performance with a wider audience.
You've just had a sell out run at the Soho Theatre with Am I Right Ladies. Tell me about the show. Its the follow up to my debut show, What Would Beyonce Do. Its about feeling ok with being absolutely yourself and going for what you want.
What do you want your audience to get out of your show? I want them to lose their shit and leave feeling empowered and proud of themselves.
What do you want to get out of the show? I want it to go global and for women everywhere to see it and to have parties around the world.
Do you intend to keep going back and performing at the Edinburgh Fringe? Edinburgh is the best playground in the world. My dreams came true because of Edinburgh. I don't think I will ever stop going, but maybe just have the odd year off!
What's the hardest thing about being a comedian ? Its very isolating and can be quite lonely. The community is wonderful but travelling on your own a lot can be tough.
Do you think it's harder for women to have a successful career in comedy than men? Yes I think so but only because there seem to be more hoops to jump through though. I think once we break through, it's there for the taking.
Have you always wanted to be a comedian? I have always wanted to be in comedy; as a comedy actress or performer. I remember being really young maybe 5 or 7 and I used to put objects on the couch and perform for them, like an entertainment show.
What's your ultimate ambition? To be the poster girl as Britain's hot funny woman and tour the world with sell out shows.
What advice would you give to any budding comedian wanting to start a career in comedy? Put the hours in; gig, work hard and create your own product to sell. Don't wait for an agent to pick you up and then be at their mercy; you want to know who you are as a performer first and then sign with someone who shares your vision.
Are you a fan of anybody who isn't necessarily on the radar yet? As in new acts?! Yes massively so; Katerina Vrana, Anna Morris and Darius Davies are all excellent acts. In terms of me not being on their radar; Beyonce, always Beyonce!
