GEORGE EGG: DIY CHEF
NEW METHODS, NEW MATERIAL and a whole NEW MENU

If you like food, you'll love this.

Following two sell out years in a row at the Edinburgh Fringe with his first show ANARCHIST COOK, award winning comedian George Egg returned to Edinburgh this August with his BRAND NEW SHOW demonstrating more ingenious live cooking and laugh-out-loud stand-up comedy and sold out the entire run once again.

George‘s doctor has demanded he must rethink his diet so his family have banned him from using the kitchen. They’ve sent him to the shed. But George simply has to keep cooking and this unstoppable urge leads to inventive creations, innovative solutions and some seriously tasty food.

Funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure, it’s a cross-genre show as much a stand-up comedy set as an illustrated lecture. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be re-purposed and abused. Expect laughs. Expect to learn something new. And expect to taste the food at the end.
