He discovered stand up soon after and has gone on to sell out his show Greek Tragedy at the Melbourne Comedy Festival support Luisa Omielan on her Am I Right Ladies tour. Recent BBC One appearances include the One Show and numerous appearances on This Week, discussing the Greek financial crisis.
George's first gig was on St Patrick’s Day in a dark room above a pub in Newcastle’s city centre. Fortunately for him, it turned out that he had a grasp of the English language as well as a talent for the art of comedy and soon this “really likable comic” went on to play all over the UK and abroad at some of the most prestigious comedy clubs. After impressing in the CKP LunchTime Special at the Edinburgh Festival he came back with his one man show Greek Tragedy, which recently sold out at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. He’s returned to Australia twice since and is also helping to spearhead a burgeoning comedy scene back home in his native Greece.
