George Egg: DIY Chef
Friday 29 November 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Johnshaven Village Hall
Friday 29 November 2019
NEW MATERIAL, NEW METHODS and a whole NEW MENU from the comedian who brought you ‘George Egg: Anarchist Cook’
George Egg is a stand-up comedian who cooks food, outstandingly good food, live on stage using unconventional methods and unexpected equipment. He makes you laugh too.
In GEORGE EGG: DIY CHEF a health scare sees George banished from the family kitchen, but 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. And the audience gets to eat the food at the end.
George Egg: DIY Chef was a Total Sell Out at the 2017 and 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it enjoyed a glut of 5 and 4 star rave reviews before going on to tour extensively in the UK including sell out runs at the Soho Theatre and numerous festivals, arts centres and theatres. This also lead to appearances cooking on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Loose Ends’ and Radio 4 Extra’s ‘The Comedy Club’ as well as on TV on ‘Bake Off: An Extra Slice’ (Channel 4).
