Jo Caulfield – Cancel My Subscription 5***** - One4Review
one4review | On 07, Aug 2014
Having had a year off in 2013 Jo Caulfield makes a welcome return to what is a home gig for her now being an Edinburgh resident and the Fringe is the better for her presence.
Of course with the referendum being very much in everybody’s mind Ms Caulfield opens up with a segment on this issue poking fun at both sides and as for the campaigners…
She is in my opinion always an extremely well written and prepared comedian who has bags of top class material and this year’s offering is well up to her normal high standards. Be it drinks with her friends, her husband’s DIY skills, a pre-gig meal at Pizza Express or hotel breaks both in London and Amsterdam, these are all subjects that this creative lady can write extremely funny material about, stories where she is generally the butt of.
As a self-confessed non- joiner in there is not a lot of audience interaction but the occasional forays are non-threatening. She has stage presence in abundance and the packed out crowd at the show I attended hung on every word of the performance.
Do I have a favourite story? Well the silent train story one just shaded it for me so to find out more go see for yourselves.
