In fact for over 20 years, George has played in Birgitz, Austria with the “Irish Band”, where they were awarded the prestigious award of Citizens of the Village.

A natural comic with a very unique and distinctive style of wit, he has developed a reputation as the funniest man in Ireland since the late great James Young. Awarded the prestigious Sony Radio Award for best regional radio presenter, George has continued to combine his razor sharp wit with his natural musical talent much to the delight of countless fans throughout Ireland.

George has vast experience as a radio presenter and currently hosts Downtown Radio’s Drivetime Show.

In addition to his many stage and radio successes, George has also hosted BBC Northern Ireland’s most successful ever television game show – Town Challenge.
