Comedian bitches about UK politics after mother's death

A comedian who hated politics and found the subject boring explained how she became involved after her mother died of cancer.

Luisa Omielan, a BAFTA Breakthrough Artist for 2018 who saw her Edinburgh show Politics for Bitches transfer to a BBC Three series of the same name, spoke to Politics Live reporter Elizabeth Glinka, about being accidentally branded "the face of right-wing comedy".

UK viewers can watch the full programme with the film, Luisa's interview and studio debate on iPlayer (for 30 days)
