Ugg ‘n’ Ogg and the World’s First Dogg Friday 13th March 13:00 £6
“A very long time ago there were no dogs — there were wolves, but we didn’t like them and they didn’t like us. But then along came Ugg’n’ Ogg to pal up with the wolves, invent our best friend, and save us all from a life of doglessness! Join our two intrepid Yorkshire hunter-gatherers as they pal up with their mortal enemies the wolves, and despite flying meat bones, sabre-toothed tigers, time-travelling sticks, and forest infernos, finally get to pat the world’s first Dogg.
Using their characteristic rich theatrical mix of physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, storytelling, and music and song, Ugg ’n’ Ogg and the World’s First Doggis Theatre Fideri Fidera’s comic take on the amazing evolutionary process that transformed the wolf into all the dogs we see in the world today.”
Following on from his first two comedy/cooking shows ANARCHIST COOK and DIY CHEF we see George Egg return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe with MOVABLE FEAST, his new show about making food on the move. It’s time for Planes, Trains and Automob-meals (sorry).
George’s shows are a sell-out. Enjoy live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy as George Egg demonstrates how to cook with an engine, get the most from the car battery and even utilise the air-conditioning.
You’ll see an hour of live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy. George demonstrates how to cook with an engine, get the most from the car battery and even utilise the air-conditioning. He’ll demonstrate ways to procure items from the train snack trolley, beat the rip-off restaurant prices at the airport and show how to turn unexpected road-works into a picnic. It’s cheeky, anarchic and creative, a multi-sensory show rich in humour and sprinkled with handy hacks. Three plates of gourmet food cooked live in the most unconventional ways and with the opportunity to taste the results at the end, provided you can stop laughing.
In 2015 George took his first show, Anarchist Cook , A Guide – How to Cook in a Hotel Room, to the Edinburgh Fringe. Despite having no PR, producer, director or even posters, it was a total sell-out and toured for 2 years.
In 2017 he launched his second show George Egg: DIY Chef – How to Cook In a Shed With Power Tools, and that was a total sell-out

Celebrated poet and broadcaster MURRAY LACHLAN YOUNG (Radio 4, Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music poet in residence,) stars in this thrilling new family performance perfect for audiences young and old!
The story opens after a funeral –
As a result of the death of both his parents our hero – the 7 year old Crispin (or Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps-to give him his full name) inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And when that butler, Kenilworth, begins to tell him of the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors our story takes flight on darkly comic wings.
The acclaimed Raddlesham Mumps mixes compelling story telling of a Gothic tale with a brilliant musical score (by Arun Ghosh), oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness. It will make your family shudder and laugh out loud.
What people are saying about The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps:
‘‘’THIS! THIS! See this! Young, old and everyone before, after and inbetween! @MurrayLYoung’s latest masterpiece (and he’s had a few)’’
Matt Everitt (BBC 6 Music)
‘‘’Just seen the beautifully staged #RaddleshamMumps at @WiltonMusicHall with @ijoeallen being utterly brilliant & the fiercely clever @MurrayLYoung delivering in fine style.’’
‘‘A fearsome but funny, perfectly metrical gothic tale of dynasty, death, revenge and hope. Fantastic word play, lots of gruesome. Lovely moral.’’
On Murray’s previous childrens’ work – Modern Cautionary Tales for Children:
‘‘The big bad boy of performance poetry turns out to the greatest children’s performer in the world.’’ Kate Copstic, The Scotsman
On Murray Lachlan Young:
‘‘I urge you to adorn yourselves with him.’’ Fi Glover BBC Radio 4
‘‘Simply brilliant, hysterically funny and strangely moving.’’ Claudia Winkleman
‘‘His exquisite wordsmithery, his sublime observations and the joyous smile of recognition that stretches across my heart each time I read or hear his laser musings!’’
