Jo Caulfield: – Cruel To Be Kind - One4Review
I have a lot of respect for Jo Caulfield as a performer whether the performance medium is TV, Radio, or for me where she really excels live on stage doing stand-up and have had the good fortune to see her a number of times.
As usual playing to busy houses in Stand III, Jo hits the stage running immediately interacting with the audience, asking questions to get her reference points, and then off we go, buckle in for the ride.
Ms Caulfield has a variety of material in her locker on wide and diverse subjects, some she involves the audience with, others she relates, but as always with her show, it is well observed, excellently written and impeccably delivered. The crowd were with her from the off, and remained with her throughout the hour, a lot too short for most I feel.
Annoying friends, perfumes, and her very own Fairy Tale were just three of the subjects I felt were highlights, but in reality there were no lows
Finishing in a similar way to the start an audience poll was taken in order to assist in an article she is writing and then it’s all over for another night.
I feel this is probably the best show I have ever seen her deliver and thoroughly recommend that check it out for yourselves.
