George Egg is a stand-up comedian who cooks outstandingly good food in an extremely unconventional manner. Sometimes he does it live on stage using all sorts of unusual DIY equipment. He also happens to be really funny and he’s coming to Belfast to perform this weekend (22nd/23rd Sep 2018) at The MAC.
In his new show, DIY Chef, a health scare sees George banished from the family kitchen. Relocated to the garden shed, his imagination and resourcefulness lead him to build an improvised kitchen there instead.
During an inspiring and inventive hour of stand-up, live cooking and comedy lecture George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using, amongst other things, a wallpaper stripper, a heat gun, a paper shredder and a whole host of other power tools, office equipment, hair-dressing appliances and gardening implements.
The best bit? You get to try the food at the end if you’re brave enough!
DIY Chef was a total sell out at the 2018 & 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has since toured all over the place including Brighton Fringe, Glasgow Comedy Festival, Galway Comedy Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival and a run at the Soho Theatre, London.
In 2015, George’s last show (Anarchist Cook) and Edinburgh debut was also a total sell out. It won him the Spirit Of The Fringe Award and he toured the show extensively on a 60+ date tour throughout the UK as well as abroad at festivals in New Zealand, Estonia, Norway and Holland. Sell out runs at the Soho Theatre and numerous festivals, arts centres and theatres lead to appearances cooking on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and Radio 4 Extra’s ‘The Comedy Club’.
If you’re in Belfast this weekend, don’t miss it. You can find out more and book tickets on The MAC’s Website.
