Josephine Caulfield (born 1963) is a British actress, writer and comedian. Born in Wales to Irish parents, she was brought up in Derbyshire and Leicestershire England. At 17 Caulfield moved to London. For two years she lived in a squat in Ladbroke Grove, West London, and played drums in a Rockabilly band. Heavily influenced by The Cramps and The Fleshtones the band went nowhere fast due to their 'lack of songs, musical ability and talent. But we did wear nice clothes' - Jo Caulfield (Radio 4 interview). Deciding she wanted to get into comedy, Caulfield worked as a waitress during the day, saved up her tips, bought a small mic & amp, and opened her own comedy club. After meeting her partner, the couple agreed a two-year plan to either make it or give up.
