You know when you find yourself approaching 30 and your dreams are broken? You've got a temping career going nowhere and 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.

This book is hilarious and listening to Luisa Omielan narrate the audio edition is like a 7 hour stand-up comedy performance. It's magical. If this book isn't a modern feminist manifesto, I don't know what is. I laughed out loud, cried out loud, and could not wipe the smile of my face at the end of it. Now I just have to wait for her to come back to Australia so I can see one of her shows. In the meantime, I could listen to this book over and over.
""What do we want?""
Deep and meaningful..... And well this book delivers. Thank you Luisa for taking me on such an emotional roller coaster. I'm so glad that I picked up this audio version because I loved that it felt you were reading right to me! I loved the character accents and I secretly (well not so secret now) hope that they actually talk like that! This book made me laugh and smile like an idiot driving so thanks for that too.
I enjoyed hearing your story Keep working hard ! You're funny as hell ! You're bound to make it big !
"Energetic and inspiring"
I absolutely loved this book. Luisa is funny and hugely inspiring. If you have ever struggled, or are struggling in any way, read this book for a brilliant boost of energy.
Fabulous, a brilliant guide through the comedy world articulate and heart breaking however very amusing and I just admire this lady massively. She's ace.
"For Fans of Omielan!"
I've watched Luisa Omielan live several times and just really love and enjoy her stories. This isn't your typical audiobook, it's very much in her style of comedy (which I think is great!) She does go a hundred miles an hour so it's like listening to a chatty friend word vomit her life story (in a good way). Can't wait for her to release a new show and potentially new audiobook with it!
"Best audio book"
This is an audiobook that knows it's an audio book. It shows the comedian at her finest. Cause if this I'm now a fan and want to see her show!!
Yes it is fabulous. Hilarious,sassy, raw and so honest a real test to listen to.
The relationship between Luisa and her father and also Klaus.
Luisa is intelligent and talented and says it how it is. Her observations are so spot on and I love her sense of humour. Luisa's observations about body image amongst other topics are so refreshing to hear. One of the best I've listened to so far, Luisa you are a legend!
loved it so inspiring and well done. Beyonce should be asking what would Luisa do x
"Didn't want the book to end!!"
Thank you publisher lady for stalking Luisa and convincing her to write a book. But dont stop now, do it again!
Love this woman and this book. I almost crashed listening to this with wet knickers
"Will make you laugh and cry, cry with laughter too!!"
Wow this book is EVERYTHING!!! I've found out so much about this woman on top of the jokes. Luisa is even more relatable to me now which makes me love her more!!!! She had me in stitches most of the time. Love it love it! LOVE IT!!! Keep up the good work girly!! xx
"What Would Luisa Do?!"
Loved it. I never have time to sit down with a book so this was fantastic and actually FYI I feel like all those people with hard copies of the book are missing out on Luisa's best (worst) German accent. I cried, I laughed & I felt touched. What a lovely soul you are Luisa. Thank you for letting us weird cyber fans into your life via this book & social media. Don't ever change. And remember us all when you are famous. BIG LOVE your dungaree supporting free New Look shoes hoping fan - Kirsty Love (all about the Love!) ❤️
