"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."
"A witty, self-deprecating and downright hilarious set from this accomplished comic."
"George Lewis stood out as the funniest. At the very least because every single one of his gags got full laughter. Plenty of intuitive subversive humour and his geeky self-assurance made the audience erupt. 9/10"
