'I have worked with a lot of funny men - Peter Cook, Spike Milligan, Harry Enfield. Bob servant is in a class of his own'  Barry Fantoni, Private Eye

In Delete This At Your Peril, Neil Forsyth introduced the fictional character Bob Servant to the UK and North America and his creation quickly gained a critically-led cult following. Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh picked Delete This At Your Peril for Esquire’s Funniest Books Ever Written and both the book and the Bob Servant character are being developed for television and radio by the BBC. Sixty-four-years-old and resolutely single, Servant spends his days with a small number of trusted associates pursuing unlikely business opportunities, giving stern views on current affairs and ‘chasing skirt’. His outlook on life is one of unbridled ambition and self-belief as he constantly battles the local ‘boo boys’ for the respect that he undoubtedly deserves. Bob Servant: Hero of Dundee charts the hilarious, whimsical and action-packed life-story of Bob Servant, unveiling with touching bravery, a fearless romp through a life full of incident, from his rise from a childhood of abject poverty, through a career in the merchant navy, his establishment of the largest window-cleaning round in Western Europe and his part in Dundee’s infamous Cheeseburger Wars of the early 1990s, to his current standing as an ‘unemployed gigolo’ in Broughty Ferry.

Bob Servant is a sixty-four-year-old, semi-retired resident of Dundee. He has previously worked as a merchant sailor and window cleaner, among other occupations, but now describes himself as ‘an unemployed gigolo’. Find out more about Bob and his world at www.bobservant.com.

Neil Forsyth is an author and journalist. A fellow Dundonian and friend to Bob Servant for over twenty years, he has recently completed Servant's biography, Bob Servant: Hero of Dundee, also available from Birlinn.
