George Fouracres, Wolverhampton's fancy-pantsiest son, tells stories of a Black Country childhood, sings ancient ballads, becomes occasional grotesques and splatters his odd brain matter all over the stage in his debut stand-up hour. You may know him from Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated sketch trio Daphne, or from BBC Radio 4, BBC Three, Channel 4 and ABC. If not, come, and behold. 'George is the future of comedy. He's a proper genius' (Caitlin Moran). 'A genuinely exciting comic actor who doesn't seem able to be not funny... put me in mind of a male Julie Walters' (Chortle.co.uk).Book Now
George Fouracres, one third of Edinburgh Comedy Award-nominated trio Daphne and Wolverhampton's fancy-pantsiest son, will bring his debut solo hour to the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, with an ode to the Black Country: Gentlemon.
Since the success of Daphne, George, alongside Wang and Forbes, swiftly followed up their beloved sketch show with two series of Daphne Sounds Expensive for the BBC.
In the course of garnering critical acclaim as a member of Daphne, George has appeared on BBC Radio 4 and BBC III, as well as appearing in one of the few sitcoms to be set in his homeland, Channel 4’s Raised by Wolves, and one of the many not set there, ABC (USA)’s espionage comedy Whisky Cavalier.
George is in great demand as an actor on stage and screen, he has appeared in Drunk History for Comedy Central, @Elevenish for ITV and Liam Williams’ Pls Like for BBC III. George took a starring role as Peter Quince in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Lyric Hammersmith last year; a feat in comic versatility! He is a BBC 4 regular on the Now Show and Newsjack.Book Now
Helen Duff is the tits...and she doesn't give a damn who knows it. A deliciously unpredictable provocateur who makes crafting a cult classic look like child's play. WIP.
