George Lewis is a stand up comedian from Stockport. In the last couple of years he has appeared on the BBC New Talent Hotlist, hosted Top Gear: Extra Gear (BBC Two, Three and Worldwide) and was the winner of Celebrity Mastermind (specialist subject: Oasis).

He is currently filming sections of his stand up for the Stand Up Sketch Show for ITV2.

Early in his career, he had successes in several new act competitions, following in the footsteps of Sarah Millican and Jack Whitehall to win the Amused Moose National New Comic Award, as well as Nando’s New Comedian of the Year, the Brighton Squawker Award, the Comedy Cafe New Act Award, and the Comedy Knights Fresh Comedian of the Year. In 2016 he was runner up in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, was selected to perform as part of the Pleasance Reserve, and was a BBC New Comedy Award finalist. He then went on to do tour support for Romesh Ranganathan, Josh Widdicombe, Tom Allen and Russell Kane.

George recently completed his debut UK tour of A Man, a Plan, a Girl With Fake Tan after a successful month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe.

As a presenter, George was named as the new host of Top Gear: Extra Gear in 2017. For Comic Relief, he has interviewed stars such as Warwick Davis, Gordon Ramsay, Gillian Anderson and Jim Broadbent.

George has also written for TV and radio, most notably for Comic Relief, BBC Comedy and Hypothetical.

‘An absorbing tale packed with fine gags... woven through are some lovely observations, his characterisation of TK Maxx is damningly spot on... a plucky everyman with more calculated wit than he lets on, expect to see plenty more of Lewis soon’

The Scotsman

‘Whether he's talking about his adventures in truancy or hot oil massage, he speaks with such polished delivery and genuine ability that you can't help but enjoy his set... he interacts with his audience so well that you'd think he'd invited them himself. Lewis has indisputably funny bones’
