"A hugely entertaining variety turn" The Guardian
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 absurdly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. A true cross between alternative stand-up comedy and music hall variety.
George Egg has been a professional stand-up comedian for the last two decades. He has an extremely successful solo show with which he has toured in Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France, Hong Kong, India and of course extensively in the United Kingdom, both on the stage and on the television. Most recently he has been the support act for Lee Mack, Mickey Flannagan and Jack Dee.
In 2014 George will be performing a solo show in the Brighton Fringe entitled ‘George Egg: Anarchist Cook’.
