George Egg is the comedian who cooks. This award-winning, multi-sell-out, international-touring performer presents a delightful hour comprising the best bits from his previous acclaimed comedy-with-cooking shows, plus a few new surprises.
Over the past half-decade George has toured three shows (‘Anarchist Cook’, ‘DIY Chef’ and ‘Movable Feast’), he’s cooked over a thousand dishes, all of them in front of a live audience and none of them with a kitchen. Revisiting those unlikely environments armed with the chef’s skills he’s honed, expect to learn how to make food on a train with a laptop, in a shed with power tools and in a hotel room with the appliances they unwittingly provide you with. Three plates of gourmet food prepared in the most unconventional of ways and with the opportunity to taste the results at the end. It’s time for the funniest recipes and the most delicious jokes.
George has appeared and cooked on ‘Bake Off: An Extra Slice’ (Channel 4), ‘Steph’s Packed Lunch’ (Channel 4) and ‘This Morning’ (ITV). He’s made food live on the radio too on ‘Loose Ends’ (BBC R4) a show which is now regularly co-hosts, and he’s even presented an episode of ‘The Food Programme’ (BBC R4).
George also produces and presents the Instagram series ‘Snack Hacker with George Egg’ which has amassed over 8 million views since the show’s inception during lockdown. In ‘Snack Hacker’, along with help from celebrity guests from the worlds of comedy and food, George interferes with existing snacks to make them more interesting and more tasty, as well as being generally entertaining.
