This paper is based on the comedian Luisa Omielan’s latest touring show Politics for Bitches (2018). Omielan’s authentic comic voice is emerging in her exploration of the politics of gender, class, power and death. In this paper I discuss Omielan’s comic expression of these major issues and themes, and question the source of her emerging sense of anger in revealing where the power really resides.
