Best-known for her legendary one-woman shows, Jo Caulfield is "one of the finest female comics at work" (The Observer) and has recently been nominated as "the best female Stand-Up in the country" 

She is also Graham Norton's head writer. "She is, quite simply, a damn funny woman" (The Scotsman).

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.

At 17 Jo left home and moved to London to sing and play drums in a Rockabilly band. This was an unusual decision as Jo can neither sing nor play drums.

"Many of the points Jo Caulfield 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 cutthroat wit and wildly accurate observation regularly brings audiences to their knees with laughter." (Evening Standard).

Jo is in demand at all major UK comedy clubs, and has completed three nationwide theatre tours. A fourth tour commences April 2008. Recent international performances include New York, Los Angeles, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
