"That accolade went to George Lewis for the sheer inventive strength of his writing. He’s clearly a linguaphile, while his [background] as an advertising copywriter has sharpened his focus in fashioning efficiently pithy phrases that stick in the mind. But there’s also a context that makes his routines more than a parade of one-liners, as he paints himself as a loveable loser, especially in love. An expert craftsman, Lewis deservedly adds this title to the 2015 Amused Moose Award, which he won at the Edinburgh Fringe last month."
"George Lewis stood out as the funniest. At the very least because every single one of his gags got full laughter… plenty of intuitive subversive humour [and] his geeky self-assurance made the audience erupt. 9/10"

A Man, a Plan, a Girl with Fake Tan tells the story of when George was twelve and he fell for the most beautiful, most orange girl in Stockport. To win her heart, he decided he needed to act less like a boy and more like a man. Specifically, the coolest man in Britain at that point: Liam Gallagher.
