Review: Jo Caulfield – Killing Time

It is easy to understand why Jo Caulfield’s shows attract sell-out audiences each year on the Fringe.  Killing Time is fresh, current, hilarious and so relatable it hurts!EdFringeFest 2018

If you’ve caught any of Leith resident Jo Caulfield’s many TV appearances, on shows such as Mock the Week and Have I Got News for You, you know she is funny.  But, after a side-splitting hour in her company, you learn that this comedian is one clever lady.

Through Jo’s razor-sharp observational humour and quick-witted interactions with the audience, you are lead, not just through an array of seemingly unlinked, yet individually giggle-worthy anecdotes, but to a climax you do not see coming!

From Gremlins to flashers, men’s speciality subjects and their lack of forethought in threesome fantasies, via snooty sales girls, phone booths and a two-drink minimum in New York, Jo’s show is a must-see this August!

By the end of the show our sides ached and we realised we had not laughed as hard as we had Killing Time with Jo Caulfield, in quite some time.


An easy 5 stars from the #fiercelyfussy Edinburgh Little Black Book team.

Killing Time is running until 26 August at Stand 3, 28 York Place (not 13 or 20 August)
