George Zach

 

George was born and raised in Kalamata, Greece, under an olive tree. He moved to Newcastle to study Biochemistry and then, after a sting of playing poker for a living, he did his first stand up comedy gig. Nearly a decade has passed and he is now a full time comedian, featuring in most UK comedy clubs and performing in festivals across the world, such as Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide and of course Edinburgh where he has been turning people away for the last 2 years.

 

George has also appeared on TV, specifically BBC One's The One Show and This Week. He has also acted on Sky Shorts and written for Live at The Apollo and Mock The Week. He has supported Larry Dean (Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre's Big Show), Luisa Omielan (Live at The Apollo, has released her own special on BBC 1), Chris McCausland (Live at The Apollo) on tour.
