Stand up comedian and radio host George McEncroe is one of the rising personalities in Australian media. This has led to guest appearances on ABC TV’s Spicks and Specks, Ch 9's The Catch Up and The Nation with Mick Molloy, and Tony Martin’s Get This on Triple M. She earned the Austereo Rising Star award, being named Brisbane’s Iron Comic for stand up comedy and her breakfast show won a Goldie award for Best On-Air Performance.
She is mother to four kids under the age of ten. After juggling kids, work and study, she has plenty of real life experiences which she shares with her audience making her warm and approachable.
George took a long time to find her 'true calling' of writing, public speaking and performance. She is able to deal with serious issues sensitively and has always been able to find humour in the darkest of circumstances. Many of her jobs would be described as anything but funny. She has been an investigator for The War Crimes Tribunal, a bio-ethicist masters student and researcher at The Mercy Hospital, an English Teacher in Melbourne and Istanbul, a Welfare Co-ordinator for teenage students and a carer for teenage boys with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
Over the last six years George has written for The Age, The Australian, The Big Issue and sketch comedy shows, The Big Bite and Life Support. She has edited a collection of stories Listening to The Silences: Women and War.
George has been described by friends as 'Geraldine Doogue meets Roseanne Barr'!
