Following sell out Edinburgh Fringe runs in 2015 and 2016 plus a sell out UK tour, award-winning* comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show, demonstrating more live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy.
In DIY CHEF, George‘s doctor has told him he needs to rethink his culinary habits and as a result his family have banned him from using the kitchen. They’ve banished him to the shed. But George simply has to keep cooking and his unstoppable urge to be creative means inventive solutions and some seriously tasty food.
It’s funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure, a cross-genre show falling somewhere between a stand-up comedy set and an illustrated lecture. Expect power tools, gardening equipment and office supplies to be abused and re-purposed. Expect lots of laughs. Expect to learn something new. And you get to taste the food at the end.**
