Gary Tank Commander to appear at Edinburgh International Book Festival
Actor Greg McHugh, best known for his role as Gary Tank Commander, will be appearing at the Edinburgh International Book Festival on Tuesday 23rd August. McHugh will be reading the part of Bob Servant in an event with Neil Forsyth, author of Delete This at your Peril, The Bob Servant Emails and Bob Servant, Hero of Dundee.
Forsyth’s anti-hero of spam, Bob Servant, takes on internet fraudsters at their own game in a hilarious compendium of genuine email exchanges. From lost African millions, to Russian brides and get rich quick scams, Bob responds with some outlandish schemes of his own. Forsyth and McHugh will be joined by Kirsten McLean (Limmy’s Show) and Dave Anderson (currently starring in Federer vs Murray at the Assembly) who will be reading the parts of the email scammers.
