Jo Caulfield: Comedian
Jo was born in Wales to Irish parents and brought up in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. She grew up believing the East Midlands was her oyster.

Recent international performances include New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
“Many of the points Jo makes about the human condition would have sociologists stroking their beards in admiration, but her audience tend to be laughing too much to notice. Do not miss her.” (The Times).“Definitely the rising star of women’s comedy. Her mixture of cut throat wit and wildly accurate observation regularly brings audiences to their knees with laughter.” (Evening Standard).
