The Off The Kerb Showcase: The Comedy Store, London, 2018
George Lewis: A Man, A Plan and A Girl With A Fake Tan: Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh, 2018
George Lewis did a brilliant ten minute routine as part of the Off The Kerb showcase at The Comedy Store in London in April 2018. The Northerner’s story-telling skills were second-to-none displaying rebellious, natural comedy delighting the audience with his delivery of the material. By the end of his routine, I was exhausted from laughing and he was a definite highlight of the evening.
I was delighted to see Lewis’ solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe in August 2018. The show revolves around a younger Lewis’ attempt to resemble Liam Gallagher from the band Oasis in order to impress a girl at his Stockport school talent show. Lewis was exceptionally likeable and was brilliant at constructing self-depreciating stories of youth. He was extremely funny and won over the room.
For me, George Lewis is one of the real current finds on the comedy circuit and I look forward to seeing him live again soon.
