George EGG (UK)

The whimsical prop comic and the innovative anarchist cook


Stand-up, prop comedian, anarchist cook, gentleman, introducing George Egg. 

A complex act, George has two faces: the whimsical prop comic and the innovative anarchist cook. 
He brings elements of both personalities to the 2016 NZ International Comedy Festival. 

As a whimsical prop comic, George has been hailed as the 'Tommy Cooper for the twenty first century' and through tears of laughter you'll see why. A true cross between alternative stand-up comedy and music hall variety, George bounds onto the stage with his case of ridiculous props to perform one of the most original comedy performances you are ever likely to see. Catch him on The BiG Show and at The Classic Late & Live.

The Anarchist Cook, a sell out Edinburgh Fringe sensation, George is both comedian and cook as he shows off a surreal mix of stand-up comedy, striking innovation and extreme multitasking in a race against time to prepare a three course meal using nothing but the basic facilities of a standard hotel room. Performing at The Herald Theatre - come and taste this show.

George Egg has been a professional stand-up comedian for the last two decades. 
George has performed both on the stage and on the television, and more recently has been the support act for Lee Mack, Mickey Flannagan and Jack Dee.
He has several extremely successful solo shows with which he has toured Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France and of course extensively in the United Kingdom.

George will make his NZ debut in the 2016 NZ International Comedy Festival.
Don't miss this sensational act!

a mixture of technical wizardry, showmanship and wry, warm offhand comments…thoroughly enjoyable” - Fest Magazine
