Comedy cook George Egg will bring his anarchic new show DIY Chef to Clevedon's Theatre Shop next month, and readers could win a tickets to see the show.
Egg is a stand-up comedian who cooks surprisingly good food live on stage using unconventional methods and with unexpected equipment.
DIY Chef sees Egg banished from the kitchen to the garden shed after a health scare where his imagination and resourcefulness lead him to build an improvised kitchen.
During an inspiring and inventive evening of stand-up and live cooking, he prepares a breakfast, lunch and dinner using, among other things, a wallpaper stripper, a heat gun, a paper shredder, gardening implements, hairdressing appliances and a whole host of power tools, and the audience get to eat the food at the end.
The show debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, where it enjoyed a sell-out run. It was also performed at the 2018 Brighton Fringe where it garnered rave reviews.
Egg said: "The show is about cooking, its about cooking, and its about comedy, and its about food.
"While I don't expect people to go into their sheds and start cooking with their power tools I hope it shows them the power of thinking outside the box and looking outside your perceived parameters, and doing something new."
Egg has appeared on Radio 4's Loose Ends and Great British Bake Off spin-off, An Extra Slice.
George Egg will be at The Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on November 9, at 7.30pm.
