Read the articles and tell me what you think...
This is from the Sunday Herald.
And this is from The Times.
I'm really looking forward to this years Festival. I've been working through new material most nights and I'm confident this is going to be my best show yet.
It's coming together quite strongly.
I'm calling it 'Jo Caulfield : Two-Faced Bitch?' The basic premise is every review I've had this year mentions the world "Bitchy"... The Guardian calls me “wonderfully sharp and bitchy”, The Observer thinks I'm “feisty, funny and wickedly bitchy”, even the Radio Times said “Jo Caulfield has a great mix of observational humour and hilarious rants on life’s irritations... She is scathing, bitchy and intelligent with masses of attitude.”
The thing is – I don’t agree with those reviews.
I don't think I'm in the slightest bit “bitchy”.
I think I'm just saying what other people secretly think.
In 'Jo Caulfield : Two-Faced Bitch?' I’ll be telling the audience some of the things that happened to me this year – (getting thrown out of a major department store, dealing with a greedy property developer, punching my nextdoor neighbour, meeting my best friends new partner) - and how I handled the situations (badly!). At the end of the show I’ll take a vote and let the audience decide whether I acted "bitchy" or not.
If they think I did - I'll pay a forfeit.
Mind you, the show is still developing so don't hold me to it. I'll tell you more about it nearer the time.
I think my tickets go on sale next week - from 9th June (?)
You can book them through the Fringe Office or you can contact the The Stand direct - why not do that? Why not phone The Stand (0131 558 7272), order your tickets and have a chat with Eva or Nicky or Christine? They're all friendly people.
Anybody else doing a show this year? Let me know who I can go drinking with.
