Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield is back with a hilarious new show.
Jo’s always wondered why anger is seen as such a bad thing. When life presents such irritations as vacuous celebrities, endless TV quiz shows, arrogant shop-assistants, emotionally ‘challenged’ men, drunken girlfriends who always pick the wrong partner, and a husband who continually quotes The Godfather, surely having a good rant – and a good laugh – is the only sensible reaction?
Enjoy your anger.
Nominated as Funniest Woman (LAFTA Awards) and Best Female Stand-Up (Chortle Awards), Jo is “feisty, funny and wonderfully bitchy” (Observer), with a “cut-throat wit and a razor-sharp tongue” (Times)
Star of Radio 4’s hugely popular “Jo Caulfield’s Speakeasy”, and seen on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, The Apprentice: You’re Fired and BBC1’s The Politics Show, this is a fantastic night out, for men and women alike.
Join the Cornish Rappers as they take a serious look at themselves before heading off to yet another comedy festival. Where did it all go wrong? Expect the usual songs as well as some new songs and an old one that they’ve finally learnt how to play.
“dancing in the aisles funny” – Rhys Darby

Jo Neary: Used to live in Falmouth
A wiggly dance to an inappropriate song, a woman with an annoying teenage voice, the old faithful tried and tested Lord Celia Johnson and her latest adventure with the Hoi Polloi, Kirstie Allsorts reclaiming our favourite hobbies and selling them back to us as well as Laurie Anderson, A Drunk Man Who Wants to Rewrite Brighton Rock and an impression of what a spoilt cat is really thinking… Using no props or costumes, just massive eyes and tiny voice, Jo Neary will conjure up a warm world of misfits, outcasts and ne’er do wells and then go for chips.
“Thank heavens for Joanna Neary whose skewed clowning is gloriously different … sublimely funny” - Bruce Dessau, The Evening Standard
“Hilarious dexterity, an astute and important show. Neary is the real thing” - The Stage
“All the characters are given a slightly crazed delivery and invested with an other-worldliness that sets her above your common-or-garden character comic. Quite brilliant ****” – Chortle
Fresh from wowing audiences at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe, comedy’s fastest rising star Seann Walsh returns to the Poly with an all-new highly anticipated live show to show the world that he is the Lie-In King.
Star of Channel 4’s ‘Stand Up For The Week’, BBC1’s ‘Live At The Apollo’ and ‘Michael McIntryre’s Comedy Roadshow’, and Dave’s ‘Argumental’, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.
Seann’s other recent TV appearances include: Channel 4’s Comedy Gala Live At The 02 2012/13, Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC2), Celebrity Juice (ITV2), Mock The Week (BBC2), 8 Out Of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and Alan Carr: Chatty Man (Channel4)
Within two years of his first comedy performance, Seann was the winner of the Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Shortly after other accolades included; Chortle Best Breakthrough Act Nominee 2010 and Chortle Best Compere Nominee 2011.
Seann Walsh currently stars in his very own brand new television series ‘Seann Walsh World’ on Comedy Central. Airing on Tuesday nights at 9pm for 13 episodes, the show mixes stand-up comedy with viral internet video clips as Seann delves in to his life as a young, single 26 year old comedian. Later this year, Seann will also star in Comedy Central’s new original sitcom, ‘Big Bad World’.

“…with the looks, gags and charm to become something quite special, Walsh is this generation’s Dylan Moran” - Time Out
“Set your alarms for this show and miss it at your peril” – Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, Evening standard
