FORMER first minister Alex Salmond is to host his own show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The ex-SNP leader, who lost his seat as MP for Gordon in May’s General Election, will front Alex Salmond Unleashed during the annual arts festival in August.
Promoters for the show say it will feature invited guests, music and comedy, as well as “a bit of light-hearted banter and a few behind-the-scenes revelations about his time in power”.
“Obviously in the show there will be lots about politics but the emphasis will be very much on the lighter side.
“Among the invited guests there is already plenty of excitement and quite a few surprises. I suspect some people might be taken aback at the range of friends whom I invite along.
“I can confirm that the President of the United States will not be appearing in person but he may well feature in quite a few of the stories I tell about recent political events.”
The hour-long show will run for two weeks at the city’s Assembly Rooms from August 13.
