Comedian Jo Caulfield will regale audiences with tales of when her outspoken opinions have led to embarassing boo boos this week.

Jo will be visiting the Old Town Hall in Hemel Hempstead for one night only with her show Uninformed Opinions, which is about misunderstandings and misinformed people – one of whom, as she’s happy to admit, is herself.

The comedian, who regularly appears on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week, said: “The idea for the show is based on the fact that whilst I’m hugely opinionated – despite what I tell my husband – I’m not always right.

“It can lead to some really embarrassing stories, a lot of which are in the show.

“Basically, it’s a comedy show for anyone who has ever wanted to shout: “Shut up, you don’t know what you’re talking about!”

Audiences can expect Jo’s trademark razor sharp observations and scandalous one-liners, as well as a good night out.

The Best Female Stand Up in the Country nominee said: “It might be pushing it to say it’s the funniest night of comedy you’ll ever see – although I suppose it depends how many comedy nights you’ve been to!

“OK, it might not be the best night of your lives ever but it’ll be a good laugh!”

Like many comics, Jo uses a lot of what is going on around her as inspiration for her jokes: “Everyday life is the source of most of my material. “Relationships, friendships, shopping, drinking, the media – basically, anything that makes me curious or angry.”

“Sometimes it’s just about ideas that I’ve had. For example, I’ve got an idea for Dragons’ Den: a baby-monitor that’s connected to the television.

It’s a stand-up show but I have the whole evening, so I get to share longer stories and reveal just how stupid I really am.

“If the baby starts crying, the TV automatically gets louder so you don’t miss anything.

“There are also a lot of insights into my marriage in the show, like the fact that my husband calls me ‘Sugar’ – because he’s diabetic and he thinks I’m trying to kill him.”

Whilst Jo thrives on the buzz of regularly gigging at the UK’s top clubs, she loves touring as it gives her a chance to do something different.

She said: “It’s a stand-up show but I have the whole evening, so I get to share longer stories and reveal just how stupid I really am.

“I love doing stand-up. There’s a real feeling that you and the audience are in partnership.

“In such a homogenous world, stand-up is a truly live experience. I like the audience to go away feeling exhilarated because we’ve been through something together.

“It’s great looking out and seeing people rocking with laughter, couple’s nudging each other in recognition and their friends pointing at them when I talk about my ‘annoying friend’.”

The Uniformed Opinions tour began in February and runs until June.
