Ireland has produced some of the finest comedians the world has ever seen and William Caulfield is no exception
William's comedy career began as a writer for sketch shows for the BBC in Northern Ireland and as a studio 'warm-up man' for TV shows for both BBC and ITV. His talent was soon spotted by producers who then commissioned his own 'Christmas Special' TV show followed very shortly with his own TV series 'Our William' a mixture of stand up and sketches.
In Northern Ireland he pioneered the idea to record his new comedy sketch show series for radio using costume and props in front of a live studio audience in the TV studios and 'It's William Caulfield so it is' was so successful it was nominated for a PPI Radio Award.
William then developed the idea of broadcasting a comedy show from various factories around the country using the workers to star in sketches and quizzes in the very popular 'William Caulfield's Workers Party' again for the BBC.
In Northern Ireland he is best known for his 'Our Jimmy' theatre show which is a tribute to his comedy hero the late James Young. William has now taken ownership of all the characters created by Jimmy and has reinvented and reimagined them into the present day.
Away from TV and Radio William is one of the best stand-up comedians in the business with material that is family-friendly but absolutely hilarious. Indeed his shows are always described as 'No Filth, No Foul Language – Just Funny!'
Radio and TV is just a small part of what William does. Away from broadcasting, he is a consummate After Dinner Speaker, Writer, Awards host, Compere and Guest Entertainer on board some of the luxury Cruise Ships around the world.
