Awkward Conversations

“Awkward Conversations”

Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield returns to the Edinburgh Fringe with “Awkward Conversations” – a brand new show for 2015. 
(The Stand, York Place, 7 – 30 August, 8.00pm) 
Life is full of awkward moments. From misread situations and conversational blunders, to a husband who continually embarrasses himself in public, Jo Caulfield has experienced them all. But she doesn’t give a fuck – in fact, she thrives on it. 
While some people tiptoe around a subject, Jo stamps on it with a highly-polished army boot…

The Day Before Boxing Day...

Found some photos from a show I did last Christmas...
Interesting way to set up a show.
 Beer barrel on stage? Check.
 Red lights in background? Check.
Fairy lights on roof? Check.
 Microphone? Check.
 Woman not understanding the jokes? Check.
 Audience staring silently? Check.
OK - let's begin.

FEATURING...

 Come on, who doesn't like a bit of Improv? Ok, most of us... but these boys are really good!
They've been picking up 5-star reviews left, right and centre. They thrive on audience interaction, so get involved! When they ask for suggestions, make it hard for them...

ME: A butcher.
THEM: Give us a location.
ME: A butcher's shop.
THEM: Give us a scenario.
ME: A butcher cutting sausages.

Shooting Tour Video (Part 2)

More photos from the video shoot we did this week for "Jo Caulfield's Uninformed Opinions" tour...

 Me and Robert Williamson making CATS video...

 Love the picture of the UNHAPPY CAT.

 Lot of people pretending to look busy.

 Robert Williamson and his 'special' furry friend.

 Craig Moncur with his 'special' furry friend.

Three men. Two cameras. One joke.

Shooting Tour Video (Part 1)

I'm starting a new tour this month ("Jo Caulfield's Uninformed Opinions") so we shot a couple of silly / funny video adverts to go with it. They'll be online in a couple of days. I'll post links when they're up.  Here's some photos from the day...


 Craig Moncur (from Black Box Digital Media)

 Director Martin Dick (from Alternative Productions) 

 Only ONE of these people can operate a camera.

 Me... Not having a clue what my lines are.

Filming at Discover 21 - great little venue in Edinburgh. 
If you get a chance you should go to one of their shows.

It was a good day. If you're filming anything I'd recommend Craig and Martin. Easy to work with. Fast. Create a good atmosphere. Made the whole thing fun.
