Jo Caulfield returns to Ropery Hall
Described as “one of the finest female comics at work” Jo Caulfield returns to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall later this month with her latest one-woman show, The Customer is Always Wrong”
From the potential minefields of dating, relationships and divorce to the more simpler things in life such as booking a holiday or joining a pub-quiz team, nothing ever seems to run as smoothly as it should. But Jo is determined to get things back on track.
“Jo will be taking a humorous look at life’s potential traps, what can go wrong and how to deal with it – and in some cases make everyone else suffer along with you,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.
Appearing at the Maltkiln Road venue on Friday, October 14, Jo will be bringing her 90 minute show, full of razor-sharp, witty and insightful observations, that, says Liz, will make you think as much as make you laugh.
Jo has come a long way since her first open spot 12 years ago 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.
She moved on by opening up her own comedy club in Hampstead, a move that gave her the ability to banter with the audience and improvise on their comments.
Now she is in demand at all major comedy clubs and the Edinburgh Festival where her hilarious and outrageous solo shows ensures she has become one of the fastest tickets sellers, moving to bigger venues each year.
Jo is a also a regular guest on both Mock The Week (BBC2) and Have I Got News For You (BBC1 as well as other shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Saturday Night Live (ITV1), The Comedy Store series 2, 4 & 7 (Ch5), and World Stand’s Up (Paramount/Comedy Central).
She also wote and starred in three series of her own critically acclaimed Radio 4 comedy show, “It’s That Jo Caulfield Again as well as guesting on a huge variety of Radio shows including The News Quiz (Radio 4), Off The Ball (BBC Scotland), Radcliffe and Maconie (Radio 2), Woman’s Hour (Radio 4) and Does The Team Think (Radio 2).
Jo’s show starts at 8pm and tickets cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door. Tickets can be bought online at www.roperyhall.co.uk, in person at the Craft Gallery or by calling 01652 660380.
