Greg Fleet is a Melbourne comedian whose show Thai Die received a five-star review at the Edinburgh Festival and has seen sell-out shows in Melbourne and Sydney. Based on a holiday from hell that Greg once experienced in Thailand and Burma, and adapted from the show (which is basically him telling the story and showing slides), Thai Die is the story of how Greg got ripped off by cunning gangsters in Bangkok, and ended up having to pay them $4,500 from his mother's credit card. It's an appalling and hilarious story, and what makes it so engaging is that it could have happened to any of us: he was in the wrong place at the wrong time, got talking to the wrong people, and ended up being hustled and threatened and completely shafted by some expert con artists. After this nightmarish experience, he travels to Burma to meet some friends and ends up trapped in a rebel training camp under fire from the military. Thai Die will appeal to comedy lovers and travel buffs in the same way as PJ O'Rourke or Joseph O'Connor.SELLING POINTS*** Greg will re-tour his sellout show of the same name when Thai Die is released. *** The book is being timed to launch at next year's Melbourne Comedy Festival, at which Greg has starred for a number of years. it is the most high-profile comedy event in the country.*** Greg will be the star of a 26-part ABC comedy show that will air next year. Details are sketchy, but Judith Lucy will also star, and the contracts have been signed.*** Australia's PJ O'Rourke*** Thai Die got a five-star rave review at the Edinburgh Festival, one of the most prestigious comedy festivals in the world.
