Comedian William Caulfield is no stranger to Derry, as he’s the regular panto dame at the Millennium Forum every Christmas.

However, as well as dressing up for the part of dame, William is also a stand-up comedian in his own right.

Speaking to the ‘Journal’ he said, “My comedy shows are the panto dame without the wigs and frocks. I’m the same person, and I keep my comedy clean.

“My new solo stand-up show is called ‘Me, Myself and I’ because for the first time I’m not doing any character sketches.

“It’s two hours of me and my take on everyday life, the little foibles I’ve noticed and attitudes to everyday experiences.

“I’ve reflected on everything from queuing in shops, to the rise of baking because of the Great British Bake Off and married couples .”

Talking about how he compiles his two hour long show he said, “I make notes all the time, on paper and on my phone. Then I sit down with them all and start to write.

“However, I do like to go off script and interact with the audience. Sometimes it’s enough to ask someone’s name and what they do - and that’s me off on a tangent!

“Usually the audience interact back with me, so I don’t ‘pick’ on anyone.

“I also like to think my shows are the kind of comedy that allows a man to come along and sit with his daughter on one side and his mother on the other and not feel uncomfortable.

“I say it’s no filth, no foul language ... just funny!

“I’m looking forward to getting back to Derry, I call it my second home.”

William Caulfield’s new show, ‘Me, Myself and I’ is on at the Waterside Theatre on Friday 20th March. Tickets are priced at £16 and available at the Box Office on (028) 71314000 and online at www.watersidetheatre.com
