George is an actor, writer and comedian from the Black Country.

He is chiefly known for his work at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, where he played the title role in Hamlet, and lead roles in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, The Tempest and The Comedy of Errors.

He is the third member of sketch group Daphne, with Jason Forbes and Phil Wang. Daphne were nominated for the Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer in 2015. In 2019, he performed his debut stand-up hour, Gentlemon, at the Edinburgh Fringe, which was subsequently adapted for BBC Radio 4 in 2022, to critical acclaim.

George is a regular performer on BBC Radio 4 and 4extra, (The Now Show, Clare in the Community, The Lenny Henry Show, Ross Noble’s Britain in Bits). On TV he has played Charlie in Raised By Wolves (Channel 4), Henry Bloyd Smith in Pls Like (BBC Three), and made his US TV debut in 2019 as the villainous Hugh Cabot in Whiskey Cavalier. He was the voice of Prince Harry in Spitting Image and cult favourites Grolton & Hovris in Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared.

He made his movie debut in 2022 as Dante Zuuzer in Scott Adkins’ award-winning martial arts masterpiece Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday.
