Fresh from rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, comedian Marcus Brigstocke gives full voice to his backpacking student twit first heard in The Now Show. Armed with only a portable tape recorder and some stout corduroy, Giles Wemmbley Hogg (two m's, two g's) bravely sets forth from his native Budleigh Salterton and offers his unique observation in these spoof travelogues. His meanderings take him to such exotic locations as the Sudan, Bolivia, the Arctic and Thailand. So join Giles on his travels and meet the people he meets, hear the sounds he hears, and let him describe - in his charming and inimitable way - the sights he sees. Grotesque but loveable, he's a travelling companion to make your toes curl in their walking boots.
