George Egg is a stand-up comedian who cooks food, surprisingly good food, live on stage using unconventional methods and unexpected equipment. He makes you laugh too.

In George Egg: DIY Chef a health scare sees George banished from the family kitchen, but relocated to the garden shed his imagination and resourcefulness lead him to build an improvised kitchen there instead. During an inspiring and inventive evening of stand-up, live cooking and comedy lecture George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using, amongst other things, a wallpaper stripper, a heat gun, a paper shredder and a whole host of other power tools, office equipment, hair-dressing appliances and gardening implements. And the audience gets to eat the food at the end.

George Egg: DIY Chef was a Total Sell Out at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Brighton Festival Fringe 2017 where it enjoyed a glut of 5 and 4 star rave reviews. Sell out runs at the Soho Theatre and elsewhere lead to appearances cooking on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and Radio 4 Extra’s ‘The Comedy Club’.

As a professional and sought-after comedian for the last two decades George has performed internationally taking his absurd 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 been the support act for Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan and Jack Dee.
