George is Greek and moved to Britain at 18 to study Biochemistry lured by the idea of living in the country of Hugh Grant, Mr Bean and Lady Diana; Due to the family budget however, instead of living it large in Notting Hill, he ended up in Newcastle Upon-Tyne.
When he was done with university, George decided lab life wasn’t for him, so whilst playing poker for a living he did his first comedy spot in 2009 in a room above a pub on St Patrick's Day.
Since that day he has gone on to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 5 times and in 2015 he appeared at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
George has firmly established himself in the UK and Australian comedy circuits, has performed in various countries such as Spain, The Netherlands, Greece, Germany and Hong Kong and has supported Luisa Omielan and Sophie Willan on their UK tours.
Outside live comedy work, George has written for and appeared on BBC One's This Week, The One Show and has acted in Sky's Summer Shorts. In 2016 George also was cast as the lead in a Greek speaking play called Aphrodite's Wedding which went on for a week-long sold out run at the Enfield Theatre.
