‘Utterly charming, imagination nudging… George Egg is hugely inventive’ The Times

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 hour of stand-up comedy George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using 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 get to eat the food at the end.

‘At a festival where being different is the norm, it is refreshing to encounter a performer who really is unique’ The Telegraph George’s Edinburgh debut in 2015 (George Egg: Anarchist Cook) was a total sell out. It won him the Spirit Of The Fringe Award and attracted rave reviews. He has since toured the show extensively on a 60 plus date tour throughout the UK as well as abroad at festivals in New Zealand, Estonia, Norway and Holland. Sell out runs at the Soho Theatre and numerous festivals, arts centres and theatres have lead to appearances cooking on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and Radio 4 Extra’s ‘The Comedy Club’. ‘Brilliantly funny.’ The Observer (Jay Rayner) ‘A genius… He is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy’ Scotland on Sunday ‘Trust us, you won’t believe how good the food is.’ The Scotsman
