Description

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).

According to George this was his first solo stand up show and based on the hours set he did then i sincerely hope it will not be his last.

The Skinny (3/5 stars) 11 days ago

Gentlemon isn’t your stereotypical comedy hour from a white male comedian at the Fringe. Decked out in a full tweed suit, Fouracres covers primary school hymns, Dad’s Army, marching music and more in this exploration of social mobility and what it’s like to make it to the middle classes from...

Fest (3/5 stars) 12 days ago

George Fouracres has already seen success as one third of acclaimed sketch trio Daphne, but this is his first venture into solo standup. It is, appropriately enough, something of an introduction – a confident, clever hour of intensely personal comedy that’s not massively big on laughs, but is packed with...
