It was always a highlight of my Fringe to see the Jo Caulfield show as apart from on TV occasionally it was my only chance to catch a comedian who for me always delivered a show packed with quality material in he own unique style.
Since however she is now Edinburgh based I get the chance to see her perform more often, so wondered if I would still enjoy an hour as much as previously.
I need not have worried.
From the off she was straight into her stride and the usual high standard of material was flowing. Bad thoughts? I suppose it is dependant on your point of view, but Jo does have definite strong opinions on things and not all of them are positive, but throughout the hour the laughs she elicited were thick and fast.
The range of topics as always is wide and varied, Waitrose, Twitter, overheard conversations in ladies loos, TV programmes, and the difference between female and male friends on a night out all come under the microscope, but these are just a sample of those covered, and her thoughts are maybe bad on most. However this is not a negative show and she is definitely a class act and one that should certainly be checked out.
