about bob servant

Bob Servant is the star of four books, a radio show, two series of a BBC comedy show and a lifetime spent securing his undisputed status as the Hero Of Dundee and the Bard of Broughty Ferry. The local business giant and universally respected ladies man first found fame with an acclaimed hat trick of books establishing him as Scotland's new man of letters while his BBC Radio 4 adaptation, The Bob Servant Emails, saw Bob seize the nation’s airwaves. Bob Servant Independent (BBC4/BBC3 Scotland) saw Bob’s voice, eyes and, most importantly, walk unleashed on a grateful Blighty. The second series, Bob Servant (BBC4/BBC1 Scotland), saw his cheeseburger van make a similarly impressive entrance. October 2015 will see the release of Servant’s fourth book: Ask Bob – Your Guide to a Wonderful Life.

For Servant this is just the latest chapter of a life not short in recognition. In the 1970s his window cleaning round was generally accepted as being the largest in Western Europe while his key role in Dundee's Cheeseburger Wars of the 1980s saw him reluctantly pushed to national prominence. With Servant defying medical opinion by the day, all bets are off for the man's future direction.
