GEORGE EGG: Anarchist Cook
12th March - THE CRYER, CARSHALTON
ONE MAN, ONE HOUR, THREE COURSES
George Egg presents a stand-up comedy show unlike anything you’ll have seen before.
A demonstration of extreme multi-tasking. At the risk of giving too much away, it’s a show where a comedian talks for an hour while simultaneously cooking a three course meal (a good meal!) using the things you’d find in a budget hotel room.
If you like food, you'll like this.
Internationally acclaimed comedian George Egg is also a rather fanatical self-taught cook with a somewhat anarchic approach to making meals. As obsessed with culinary matters as he is with comedic ones, and finding himself dissatisfied with the quality and cost of takeaways and room-service meals while touring the stand-up comedy clubs of the world, George embarks on a project to take matters into his own surprisingly capable hands.
A surreal and absurd mix of stand-up comedy and striking innovation.
