Lakin McCarthy presents George Egg: Anarchist Cook

George Egg: Anarchist Cook

If you like food and cooking then you’ll like this.

George Egg spends a lot of time staying in hotels and, unimpressed with room service, he has taken matters into his own hands. Whilst performing a mind-bending show of comedy-cum-illustrated-lecture, George prepares a three-course meal on the kind of ‘catering’ equipment hotels unwittingly provide (including irons, kettles and trouser presses). You can taste it at the end… If you want to.


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 sweetly whimsical comedy performances you are ever likely to see. He has been hailed as ‘a Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century’ and through tears of laughter you’ll see why. 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 and of course extensively in the United Kingdom, both on the stage and on the television, and more recently has been the support act for Lee Mack, Mickey Flannagan and Jack Dee.

‘A hilarious show, with surprisingly good food.’
The Times

‘A genius… he is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy.’ Scotland on Sunday

No latecomers will be admitted to this performance
Suitable for Ages 14+.
