Award-winning comedian Jo Caulfield hits town this week with her brand new show 'Better the Devil You Know', inspired by a shocking conversation with an audience member.
The star of shows like Mock The Week and Have I Got News for You is coming to Stroud on Sunday, November 25.
She said: "Five years ago I got married in New York. At a recent gig I was talking to a woman who'd done the same thing. She said 'Wasn't it easy? Pay $50, get your license, three minutes later you're done. The hardest part is when you get back to Britain and you have to fill in all the paperwork and register it here'.
"I felt my blood go cold - I didn't know we had to do that. Then it hit me like a punch in the stomach - I'm not actually married to my husband."
The realisation that she is, in fact, a single woman, got Jo thinking: "If you could make all your big life choices again, would you do the same things?"
Although Jo is a regular on many TV and radio panel shows, its on the live stage where she believe she really shines.
She was recently nominated as the Best Female Comic in the UK.
Jo Caulfield's "Better The Devil You Know" will be at The Subscription Rooms, Stroud, on Sunday, November 25.
