Jen is a critically acclaimed stand up comedian, writer and actor. She is a regular performer on the UK and international comedy circuits. She has written for BBC Scotland, presented for BBC 6 Music and Juice FM, and has been a regular contributor to magazines and online sites including Diva, g3, Standard Issue and The Huffington Post.
Jen has written and performed five solo shows (Me My Mum & I, British(ish), Now & Then, Wishful Thinking, and The Other One) around the world, including at Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Norway Comedy Box Festival, Comedy Club Asia, Adelaide Festival and the Edinburgh Festival. She has toured extensively — with comedians Kerry Godliman, Francesca Martinez and Roisin Conaty, among others — and is currently supporting Frankie Boyle in London.
Jen has performed with Russell Brand on his radio comedy Cloud Cuckoo for Radio 2, in Kerry Godliman’s sitcom, Kerry’s List, for Radio 4, and has performed stand up on Comedy Central in Live at the Comedy Store.
Darren Harriott is one of the most exciting up-and-coming comedians on the circuit. Over the last couple of years, he has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central, BBC Radio 4’s Best of the Fest, BBC 4 Extra Stands Up, and The Now Show – and he also features in a new series for Comedy Central Online.
2017 saw Darren head to the Edinburgh Festival with his debut hour Defiant at the Pleasance Courtyard, which was a big hit with audiences and critics alike.
A confident performer with a captivating charm, Darren’s comedy deals with everything from subverting stereotypes, to everyday observations, to that juiciest of topics, religion – all with a cutting edge.
Best-known for her legendary one-woman shows, Jo Caulfield is “one of the finest female comics at work” (The Observer) and has recently been nominated as “the best female Stand-Up in the country” (Chortle.co.uk). She is also Graham Norton’s head writer. “She is, quite simply, a damn funny woman” (The Scotsman).
Jo is a regular guest on both Mock The Week (BBC2) and Have I Got News For You (BBC1).
“Many of the points Jo Caulfield makes about the human condition would have sociologists stroking their beards in admiration, but her audience tend to be laughing too much to notice. Do not miss her.” (The Times).
“Definitely the rising star of women’s comedy. Her mixture of cutthroat wit and wildly accurate observation regularly brings audiences to their knees with laughter.” (Evening Standard).
