Where there are power tools aplenty with the potential to slice and dice and cook the kippers, steak and other tasty ingredients he’s smuggled in …

It’s a bright idea, executed with confidence by the pun-crazy Egg, but thin fare so far as filling an hour is concerned. Once he’s explained what he’s going to do, watching it all happen is a tad tedious. And the Sportsman’s Bar venue is so stiflingly hot he could’ve just poached that egg on the floor.
