BIO

George Lewis is a stand up comedian from Stockport. In the last couple of years he has appeared on the BBC New Talent Hotlist, hosted Top Gear Extra Gear (BBC 2, 3 & Worldwide) and was the winner of Celebrity Mastermind (Specialist subject: Oasis).

He is currently filming sections of his stand up for the Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2.

Early in his career, he had successes in several new act competitions, following in the footsteps of Sarah Millican and Jack Whitehall to win the Amused Moose National New Comic Award, as well as Nando’s New Comedian of the Year, The Brighton Squawker Award, the Comedy Cafe New Act Award and the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian of the Year. In 2016 he was runner up in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, was selected to perform as part of the Pleasance Reserve and was a BBC New Comedy Award Finalist. He then went on to do tour support for Romesh Ranganathan, Tom Allen and Russell Kane.

George is now touring his own show ‘A man, a plan, a girl with fake tan’, after a successful month long run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

As a presenter, George was named as the new host of Top Gear Extra Gear in 2017. And for Comic Relief, he has interviewed stars such as Warwick Davis, Gordon Ramsay, Gillian Anderson and Jim Broadbent.

George has also written for TV and radio, most notably for Comic Relief and BBC Comedy.

VIDEO

PRESS

"Whether he’s talking about his adventures in truancy or hot oil massage, he speaks with such polished delivery and genuine ability that you can’t help but enjoy his set… He interacts with his audience so well that you’d think he’d invited them himself. Lewis has indisputably funny bones"

– Ed Fest Mag


"A witty, self-deprecating and downright hilarious set from this accomplished comic"

– Fringebiscuit


"‘A Man, a Plan…’ is an absorbing tale packed with fine gags… woven through are some lovely observations, his characterisation of TK Maxx is damningly spot on… a plucky everyman with more calculated wit than he lets on, expect to see plenty more of Lewis soon"

– The Scotsman


"Lewis is a witty, awkwardly charismatic comic, he’d be right at home on a panel show"

– Shortcom


"That accolade went to George Lewis for the sheer inventive strength of his writing. He’s clearly a linguaphile… 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"

– Chortle


"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"

– Arts Award Voice


NEWS

Edinburgh Fringe 2018

Tickets are now on sale for George’s run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

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.

Pleasance Courtyard (Attic) – 1st-26th August 2018 – 5:45pm
