NEW MATERIAL, NEW METHODS and a whole NEW MENU from the comedian who brought you ‘George Egg: Anarchist Cook’

“brilliantly funny” The Observer (Jay Rayner)

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.
