If you don’t fancy performing but want to be part of the team, you can also get involved to help make the set in 24 hours with the ludicrously talented Georgia Gendall.”

George Egg

George Egg: Anarchist Cook

Friday 3 June, 20:00

If you like food and cooking then you’ll love George Egg’s cocktail of stand-up comedy, striking innovation and extreme multi-tasking, coming to The Poly on Friday 3 June.

George Egg spends a lot of time staying in hotels and some years ago, unimpressed with room service, he took matters into his own hands. Whilst performing a mind-bendingly original show of comedy-cum-illustrated-lecture George prepares a three-course meal on the equipment hotels unwittingly provide (iron, kettle, trouser press…), and if you want to, you can taste it at the end.

The Kernow King is Trevithick! 

Thursday 12 May, 19:30
