If you like food, you'll like this!  George Egg is an internationally acclaimed stand-up comedian, who cooks food, surprisingly good food, live on stage using unconventional methods and unexpected equipment.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 comedy George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using 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 get to eat the food at the end.

"Utterly charming, imagination nudging... George Egg is hugely inventive" 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
