About this deal

You Wore It First – which will be published by Polygon next summer – is a reference to the stand-up always wearing her elder sibling’s hand-me-downs. Voted Circuit Comedian of the Year in 2021 in a poll of fellow comics, alongside Ninia Benjamin and Mark Nelson, Caulfield has no truck with false modesty concerning the title. The cutting between their youthful history, exploring and finding their own paths into creative lives, with Annie’s later relationship with her cancer – and Jo’s relationship with that – keeps the vivacious Annie front and centre even as her body weakens. These were also traits that she shared with their RAF officer father, whose class pretensions clashed with Annie’s renegade, bohemian affectations. Whenever new comics ask me for advice, I always tell them: the audience have come along to have a good time, the audience want to laugh, so don't be scared of them.

Caulfield has delivered a fitting tribute to her sister that, crucially, you suspect Annie would sneakily delight in' * Chortle * 'I was blessed to sit in a room making up jokes with Annie Caulfield. A lot of people have written books about comedy and comedians over the years but I don't think they were actually at the coalface.

Might she now follow Annie’s example again and belatedly begin to share more of herself there as she increasingly gives fewer fucks? Marvellous though she appears to have been in the main, Annie’s ego and insensitivity are aspects that Jo doesn’t shy away from.The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products. I have the same muscle memory when I’m gardening, I seem to know how to do things because I saw my Dad doing it, it’s him doing it not me. One of my favourite comedians Jo Caulfield has written this beautifully funny and moving book which I loved! Jo is a well known comedian, and has produced a touching book about her equally wonderful sister, who wrote for many well know TV shows, and wrote great radio plays.

Structurally it’s fascinating, as the story of their lives together is juxtaposed with the arc of Annie’s illness. The city is where Caulfield lives and is currently preparing to perform her new show, Here Comes Trouble, at the Fringe. A beautiful, bold portrait of a much-loved sister that will speak to everyone who has loved and lost and everyone who is yet to lose someone.Laughter is what gets us through the toughest times, and Jo Caulfield demonstrates that beautifully in this heartfelt and hilarious book' -- Jimmy Carr 'A remarkable and cathartic read. Necessary cookies enable core functionality such as security, network management, and accessibility.

I had seen jo read excerpts from the book at her live show so I was already sold on it before I bought it.
