Jo Caulfield

Jo Caulfield is one of the most popular comedians on the comedy circuit and has been nominated as one of the best female comics in the country. She is in demand at all major UK comedy clubs. She has become one of a rare group at the Edinburgh Festival– a comedian who is a guaranteed sell-out.

Jo Caulfield has come a long way since her first open spot 12 years ago. To misquote the Human League, Jo was working as a waitress in an Italian Restaurant when she found herself drunkenly entering the weekly open mike competition at The Comedy Café in East London. Although she hadn’t prepared anything and could hardly stand, let alone speak, Jo won the competition and was asked back for a 10 minute booking the following week.

After being advised that regular compering was one of the best ways to improve as a comic Jo saved her ‘waitressing tips’, bought a cheap microphone and a small amplifier and opened her own comedy club in the basement bar of The White Horse in Hampstead. It was getting up on stage at her own club every week for 5 years that gave Jo her ability for bantering with the audience and improvising on their comments. As one critic put it, “It’s an amazing knack. Caulfield seamlessly weaves in and out of material and audience banter.

Nominated as “Funniest Woman” – LAFTA Awards, “Best Female Stand-Up” – Chortle Awards
