Gary Tank Commander

Comedy review: Gary, Tank Commander - Mission Quite Possible

The latest BBC Scotland comedy to be turned into a big stage show, after Still Game and Burnistoun, and prior to Rab C Nesbitt’s adaptation at the Hydro, Gary: Tank Commander is disappointingly the least effective of the transfers so far. Greg McHugh has performed panto and his perma-tanned, endearingly daft squaddie is easily big and glowingly camp enough to command an arena. Featuring production values that arguably surpass the television series, which shot its Iraqi and Afghan bases in Scottish quarries, Mission Quite Possible lights up the exterior of the Hydro in military green and brown and serves Gary’s beloved cheesy pasta in the foyer’s foodstands. Most impressively, it opens with a helicopter scene to rival Miss Saigon’s.
