George left before graduation and formed a theater group; unsuccessful, he moved on to join The Second City, where he trained with John Candy, among others.

He took over the voice of Bob Fish in the British-Canadian animated comedy series Bob and Margaret and played The Inspector in the 1993 revival series of The Pink Panther.

Some of George's other appearances include the role of Mr. Pashmutt on Desperate Housewives in the 2005 episode "You Could Drive a Person Crazy", Ali on American Dad! in the 2005 episode "Stan of Arabia", and Captain Barbossa in the video games Kingdom Hearts II and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow.
