Jo Caulfield – Here Comes Trouble

Sat 11th May 2024 8:00pm

Voted ‘Comedians’ Comedian of The Year 2022’, Jo Caulfield is “quite simply, a damn funny woman.” (The Guardian)

Jo has appeared on Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The John Bishop Show, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, The Royal Variety Performance, and Richard Osman’s House of Games.

Nominated as “the best female Stand Up in the country” (Chortle) and “one of the Top 100 Comedians” (Channel 4), Jo is a regular on Radio 4 and a returning guest on Breaking The News. Jo’s first book, “The Funny Thing About Death” was published in August 2023.

Here Comes Trouble is 90 minutes of razor-sharp observations and scandalous one-liners, as Jo gets her claws into everything (and everyone) that annoys her.

From stories about arguing with strangers on trains to dealing with over- enthusiastic supermarket staff, and trying to recapture the magic in a long-term relationship to “helping” organise her newly divorced friend’s dating life, this is pure stand-up, delivered with nothing more than a microphone and a bad attitude.

Packed with brilliant lines, embarrassing anecdotes and hilarious insights, Here Comes Trouble “will have you absolutely helpless with laughter.”  – The Herald

“Sharp-witted urban comedy that goes down a treat… like a sociology textbook but with jokes” – The Times

“One of the finest female comedians at work” – The Observer ★★★★★

“An evening of perfect comedy” – The Metro ★★★★★

“One of UK’s smartest comics” – The Herald ★★★★★

Jo’s TV credits include Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock The Week, The John Bishop Show, Have I Got News For You, The Royal Variety Show and as Champion of the Week on Richard Osman’s House of Games – where she discovered she has a horribly competitive and completely ruthless streak.

Jo has written and starred in several of her own BBC Radio 4 series and has appeared as a guest on many radio panel shows including Just A Minute, Breaking The News, The News Quiz and Armando Iannucci’s Charm Offensive.

A prolific comedy writer Jo worked for many years as a writer on So Graham Norton on Channel 4. She has also written for Ruby Wax, Joan Rivers, Denise Van Outen and Ant & Dec.

What the reviewers said about “Here Comes Trouble” this Fringe…

“Here Comes Trouble is akin to spending a joyous evening with a pandemic-neglected friend. Albeit one who constantly critiques nearly everything about you. To your face.” ***** The Recs

“Packed with gags and stories in her accustomed style, slightly caustic about some, bitingly sarcastic of others, but laugh out loud funny throughout….” ***** One4Review

“The laughs keep coming, thick and fast … all skewered with her trademark caustic wit. Her onstage persona is blisteringly impatient.” ***** Bouquets and Brickbats
