Georgina (2011) stars in NewsRevue on London stage.

Georgina Thomas is a recent graduate of The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama who likes a damn good pun. She is a writer and performer and when not scrolling through twitter, listening to Radio 4 and devouring newspapers, Georgina likes a good gin and tonic. Georgina is a member of the Soho Theatre Young Company and is currently writing cookery-based comedy. With an extra-large spoon at the ready, Georgina can’t wait to tuck into a big bowl of NewsRevue.

NewsRevue cracked its first gag at The Gate, London, back in 1979 and in the summer of that year premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where it has returned annually ever since. It was the creation of Cambridge university chums Mike Hodd and Jack Thorington. Professor Michael Hodd has remained with the show since the very beginning. A few years after its inception it moved to its own venue, the Canal Café Theatre, where it continues to play to packed houses 50 weeks of the year.

Georgina is appearing in NewsRevue at the Canal Café in March and early April only.
