Funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure, cross-genre stand-up comedian and anarchic chef George Egg’s uniquely brilliant act is as much a comedy set as it is an illustrated lecture. George Egg is the comedian who cooks.
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. 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.
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.
