‘Spirit of The Fringe’ winner, George Egg, will bring his hilarious new set to The Witham in Barnard Castle this month.
His new show ‘George Egg: DIY Chef’ tells the story of his own personal dietary health scare which saw George banned from his family kitchen…he was forced to relocate to the garden shed, where he used his imagination to build a kitchen.
Life on the road as a comedian forced Egg to adapt his cooking methods with the utensils he had in hotels including a kettle to poach eggs and sea bass, sizzling pancakes on an upturned iron or preparing naan bread on available trouser presses.
This new live show includes live cooking mixed with an effortlessly hilarious comedy lecture; the award-winning comic will prepare a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using unconventional methods including power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies.
‘George Egg: Anarchist Cook’ (2015) was Egg’s first cooking show at Edinburgh Fringe. After this success, the show toured for two years highlighting what was to come in the new tour, which started in January in Havant and will end in October in South Molton, even covering America along the way.

The comedian completed sell-out shows at Edinburgh Fringe in 2015/16, performing again in 2017 and Brighton Fringe the same year…he has also performed successful show ‘Total Sell Outs’ at The Gilded Balloon.
The one-time Covent Garden street entertainer turned to stand-up in his 20’s and has demonstrated some memorable comedy cooking skills including how to make a whisk out of coat hangers and which plants in reception are suitable for foraging.
George Egg will perform ‘George Egg: DIY Chef’ at The Witham in Barnard Castle on Saturday 23rd June. Tickets, priced at £14 in advance, are available from thewitham.org.uk.
