Festival of the Spoken Nerd vs George Egg
Part of Brighton Science Festival 2017
In a special one-off night for the Brighton Science Festival, comedy phenomenon Festival of the Spoken Nerd join forces with stand-up and anarchist cook, George Egg, in a double bill that brings new meaning to the phrase “Domestic Science”.
Alongside this never-to-be-seen again, unrepeatable (and probably un-insurable) double bill, The Anarchist Cook will join The Nerds on stage to create the most scientifically accurate – and possibly most scientifically inedible – dessert ever created.
Don’t miss two of your favourite acts doing things that really shouldn’t be done with household objects at The Old Market on Wednesday 15th February 2017.
Show suitable for ages 12+, contains some nerdity.
About George Egg:
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 comedy, striking innovation and extreme multitasking. Whilst performing a show of something like a cross between stand-up comedy, illustrated lecture and live demonstration, 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.
“A genius… He is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy” Scotland on Sunday
“Go see George Egg… you’ll never look at a Corby trouser press in the same way again. Brilliant.” Jay Rayner (Observer Restaurant Critic)

Their most recent tour show “Just For Graphs” played to over 16,000 nerds and non-nerds, their videos on YouTube have been watched more than 35 million times and their smash hit DVD “Full Frontal Nerdity” is now available on Amazon and iTunes. Tonight, the Nerds will bring an hour-long show of DIY science and songs inspired by their BBC Radio 4 comedy series “Domestic Science” to prove that you don’t need expensive kit or a fancy laboratory to do experiments at home.
