George Egg

one man….one hotel room…three courses

SELL OUT – Edinburgh Fringe 2015 & 2016

Winner – Spirit of The Fringe Award 2015

If you like food and cooking then you’ll like this. A cocktail of stand-up comedy, striking innovation and extreme multi-tasking.

George Egg spends a lot of time staying in hotels and some years ago, unimpressed with room service, he took matters into his own hands. Whilst performing a mind-bendingly original show of comedy-cum-illustrated-lecture George prepares a three-course meal on the equipment hotels unwittingly provide (iron, kettle, trouser press…), and if you want to, you can taste it at the end.

George is touring the show in 2016/2017, a tour that has taken him to Estonia, Norway, The Netherlands, New Zealand and extensively throughout the United Kingdom.

a genius… He is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy


A hilarious show, with surprisingly good food


It is refreshing to encounter a performer who really is unique


My find of the Fringe


George’s show Anarchist Cook is absolutely glorious
