Jo Caulfield to headline the Comedy Club on the Grantham site
The Funhouse Comedy Club returns to the Guildhall Arts Center Ballroom on Thursday, October 28 for a great night of laughs.
Headliner Jo Caulfield is a genuinely witty, keen observation comic that quickly establishes a relationship with its audiences.
At 17, she left home and moved to London to sing and play drums in a Rockabilly band, although she actually couldn’t do either! In her first comedy open spot, which she won, she was drunk and decided to participate without any preparation!
Since then, she has grown steadily by appearing on television in titles like “Have I Got News For you”, “Mock the Week”, “Saturday Night Live” and “Never Mind The Buzzcocks”. His presence is also felt on radio, having appeared on “The News Quiz”, Clive Anderson’s Chat Room and recording his own program for several years on Radio 4.
Add to that her role as a TV warm-up and comedy writer for people like Joan Rivers, Ant and Dec and Graham Norton, here is a very talented lady.
Support will come from UK-based French comedian and storyteller Marcel Lucont. After touring the world with his dry wit, songs of debauchery and exquisite poetry, he makes audiences laugh from start to finish. Her impassive delivery and surreal reflections are both inspiring and fascinating.
Also appears the very sympathetic Chris Washington. He was nominated for the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Best Newcomer Award, Writer, and is also a voice over artist and comedian, who has appeared on “Mock The Week” and supported Jason Manford on tour.
A former postman, he uses his Nordic charm and hilarious tales to entertain crowds.
The line-up will be completed by the wonderfully astute and affable Vittorio Angelone, “one of Belfast’s funniest exports”.
Companion for the night is the lively and amiable Spiky Mike.
Tickets are £ 11 in advance. Doors open at 7.15 p.m. for a departure at 8 p.m.
