George Egg is a stand-up comedian and a passionate cook with an anarchic approach to making meals. Dissatisfied with the quality of room service food while touring the UK’s comedy clubs, George embarks on a project to take matters into his own hands.

This is a surreal mix of stand-up comedy, striking innovation and extreme multitasking. Whilst performing a show of something like a cross between stand-up comedy, illustrated lecture and live demonstration, George prepares a three course meal using just the equipment you’ll find in a hotel room.

And if you want to, you can taste it at the end.

“A genius… He is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy” Scotland on Sunday

“It’s a hilarious show, with surprisingly good food” The Times

“Go see George Egg… you’ll never look at a Corby trouser press in the same way again. Brilliant” Jay Rayner (Observer restaurant critic)

As a professional and sought-after comedian for the last two decades, George Egg has performed internationally taking his absurd brand of far-reaching humour to Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France, Hong Kong and even India, both on stage and on the television, as well as being the support act for Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan and Jack Dee.
