Live & Local: The Best of George Egg

Snack hacker, George Egg, cooks food while making you laugh. In the last half-decade, he’s toured three shows (‘Anarchist Cook’, ‘DIY Chef’ and ‘Movable Feast’) and cooked over a thousand dishes, all of them in front of a live audience, none of them with a kitchen. This is the best bit; the most delicious jokes, and the funniest food. Three meals are cooked live, and you even get to try them at the end. The event, held at Kirk Langley Village Hall, starts at 7:30pm on Friday 26th January and tickets are available from the Live and Local website at
