On screen, George regularly co-hosted the Logie award winning The Circle, and she makes regular guest appearances on popular shows including Can Of Worms, Spicks and Specks, ADbc and Insight.

George's has put on shows in each of the last 6 Melbourne International Comedy Festivals and is a warm and charismatic performer.
