Joseph Caillot (Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois, Paris, 24 January 1733 – Paris, 30 September 1816) was a French actor and singer
He was endowed with a very wide compass which enabled him to sing as a basse taille (bass-baritone), but also to reach up to the haute-contre tones. According to Rodolfo Celletti "he was a baritenor and a bass at the same time": Grétry and Monsigny used to notate his parts in the bass clef, but to set them in high-baritone tessiture.
