HE’S the funnyman who cooks food in hotel rooms using the equipment they unwittingly provide.

Think iron, kettle, trouser press - and the food is good.

After a ridiculously successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe last August, George Egg is taking his Anarchist Cook show on the road this summer, including a date at Forest Arts Centre in New Milton on November 2 in conjunction with the New Forest Food and Drink Festival.

George Egg is a stand-up comedian and a passionate cook with an anarchic approach to making meals.

Dissatisfied with the quality of room service food while touring the UK’s comedy clubs George embarks on a project to take matters into his own hands.

This is a surreal mix of stand-up, striking innovation and extreme multitasking.

Whilst performing an hour of comedy George prepares a three course meal using just the equipment you’ll find in a hotel room. And if you want to, you can taste it at the end.

As a professional and sought-after comedian for the last two decades, George has performed internationally taking his absurd brand of far-reaching humour to Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Spain, Austria, France, Hong Kong and even India, both on stage and on the television.

George has also been the support act for Lee Mack, Micky Flanagan and Jack Dee.

He began incorporating food into his comedy at the suggestion of fellow comic Robin Ince.

The show links in with the rise of so-called food porn on television ratings winners MasterChef and The Great British Bake Off.

Egg feels his show plays into this but also links into the self-sufficiency movement.
