Hire George Egg

George Egg offers two shows; His off the wall stand up show and/or his now famous cookery comedy set. Funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure, cross-genre stand up comedian and anarchic chef George’s uniquely brilliant act is as much a comedy set as it is an illustrated lecture.

Unique and genre-defining, he makes food onstage using unexpected equipment and unconventional methods. And he makes you laugh too. In 2015 George took his debut solo show ‘Anarchist Cook’ to the Edinburgh Fringe. The show, a comical guide on how-to-cook-in-a-hotel-room, was a total sell out and won him the Spirit of The Fringe Award.

George Egg The Comedian Who Cooks

This success was followed by a two year tour of the show that took him to Holland, Estonia, Norway and New Zealand as well as extensively in the UK including two runs at the Soho Theatre London, and another sell out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2016.

Career Highlights

In 2017 George returned to Edinburgh with his follow up second show ‘DIY Chef’; where this time he cooked in a shed using power tools. It was another total sell out and the springboard for a second tour.

George has appeared (and cooked) on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and has enjoyed numerous appearances on BBC Radio 4 Extra.

In addition to his solo comedy/cooking shows George has been a sought-after stand-up comedian for the last two decades taking his brand of far-reaching humour to Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France, Norway, New Zealand, Hong Kong and even India, both on stage and on the television. He has also supported the likes of Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan and Jack Dee on tour.

Currently on tour throughout the UK with ‘DIY Chef’; George also has a number of exciting television, radio and literary projects in development.

Stand Up Comedy

Wildly brandishing the worlds’ second largest briefcase containing a battery of ridiculous props; George bounds onto the stage to perform one of the most original, interesting, innovative, and sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see.

George Egg: Comedy Cooking
