The 30-year-old was in menacing form, exploding on the flanks and the Tottenham defenders could not find an antidote for the Ghanaian.
His troubles forced Japhet Tanganga of Tottenham into receiving his second yellow card, and got him sent off before the hour mark.
Eight minutes later, the numerical advantage counted as Palace earned a penalty which was converted by Ivory Coast star Wilfried Zaha.
Crystal Palace's summer signing from Celtic Odsonne Edouard doubled the lead on 84 minutes, before Jordan Ayew was replaced by Olise.
Odsonne Edouard then finished off a brilliant after with an 86th minute strike to condemn Tottenham to their first defeat of the campaign.
Ayew is yet to score his first goal of the season but the 3-0 victory is befitting for his 30th birthday.
