Product Description

Famous for his straight-talking, no-holds-barred stand-up, critically acclaimed comedian Frankie Boyle brings us his highly anticipated second live DVD. Recorded at London's Hammersmith Apollo, during his sell-out 2010 tour, Frankie comes armed with an impressive arsenal of punchlines and putdowns which are too controversial for TV.

Packed with exclusive extras including: Training montage, Valium-fuelled publicity thing and Nigel Buckland, endomorph.

From the Back Cover

Subtitles are in English for the Hard of Hearing (only).

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTRAGEOUS!!! 27 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
Frankie Boyle is my favourite stand up comedian ,his unique brand of coruscating gallows humour make me HOWL with laughter and tickle my tonsils, his sometimes cruel observations, witty one liners pull no punches and I love him for his honesty ,brilliant self deprecation and Ginger hair.Only the closeted racists, misogynists, homophobes ,anti-disability brigade would find his humour offensive. Political Correctness has destroyed Freedom of speech and expression, offering the kind of bland fare that might be TV friendly but paradoxically doesn't speak on behalf of those excluded from the mainstream media. Being Gay, Black or Disabled doesn't remove one's sense of humour, as often laughter, especially a raucous cackle in the dark can help make a difficult Life more bearable and mitigate the feelings of injustice and disempowerment. To make assumptions about what minorities find hilarious/acceptable is both patronising, condescending and missing the point; one's situation might be dire and tragic, but laughter is a balm that will ease many aches through the darkest times. Don't bristle with self righteousness because you feel offended, the jokes are ultimately on YOU not us.

This is Frankie Boyle at his best: full contact comedy. It's probably not even worth mentioning that you should not watch him if you are easily offended, because everyone knows he can be offensive, but if you are tired of censor-approved, bland, sterile comedy, then this is the show for you. What most people here seem to have forgotten is that they are not supposed to review the show, but the product, only part of which is the show. A DVD really should have more extras, and even if they were not that eager to shoot more stuff for this DVD, they could easily have gathered some of his brilliant material from Mock the Week and included that in a featurette. Also, an interview would be good. That said, it is still the best comedy DVD in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Onslaught Continues.... 17 Nov 2010
Frankie Boyle's new DVD is much his first, a constant onslaught of hellish, brilliant jokes. Normally in reviews like these I could post a snippet, an example of the material on offer; that's not going to happen. The gags are so near the knuckle, they're punching you in the face. Needless to say, this ain't a christmas present for your mum, or indeed ANYONE who can be even vaguely offended. It's flawless stuff as expected, even if it's his last stand-up for now, he's going out with a hell of a bang. Also, Frankie manages to pack an awful lot in material into the seventy-five minutes, without once losing his pace or energy. And for anyone who was wondering, this is nearly all new material, he only recycles jokes a few times and even then they're still good to hear.

I will say one thing though, Boyle's act feels a bit disjointed this time around, it doesn't have the easier, chatty fluidity that the first DVD had. For the first ten of fifteen minutes, he literally picks audience members at random and screams insults at them. This isn't necessarily a criticism though, and could easily be a result of editing, either way he settles down after this into his usual demeanour. And one thing he has dramatically improved is his ability to reference his own jokes and build on them later in the show, something that he has never showed us in the past.
The extras are fantastic, especially the footage from his joke test warm-ups. It's great to see him trying out fresh material and the interviews with him about writing experience.

Definately worth buying for any fan of Boyle or dark comedy in general, and you will remember what you miss about Mock The Week.

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the best 17 Nov 2010
By yaleey
Firstly let me say that I am a big fan of Frankie Boyle and have seen him film Tramadol Nights live aswell as read the book and watched pretty much everything he has ever appeared in...which is why I found this DVD somewhat disappointing. The observations are brilliant, the put downs hilarious, the anecdotes are also very funny...the first time I heard them. For me this is the main problem, I have heard (or read) at least 70% of the material before, whether in his book, or on Mock the Week, or in the audience watching him film Tramadol Nights. You will see what I mean when the series is aired at the end of this month. So, I think the DVD will appeal more to those who haven't followed him like a manic obsessive over the last few years or so and especially to those who are less familiar to his material. For those people who are offended, you really should know by now that his material can be considered as offensive by some people, some who are obviously more sensitive to this type of humor than others, so my advice would be if you're the `easily offended' type then best to watch something else, rather than watching it knowing you'll be offended then having a boring dull moan about it afterwards.

This is great buy it. One of a few comedians who is actually funny and witty to a point where you laugh out loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fankie Boyle in Top form 17 Feb 2011
Hi i own this DVD and would warn anybody thinking of buying it,this is not Frankies mock the week persona,it is his stage act the two are VASTLY different, Frankies stage act contains lots of graphic references and swearing be warned do not buy as a prezzie unless you know the person is not offended by such,to anybody who likes Frankie this is top notch stuff with bad taste jokes about everything under the sun taking the mick out of the audience to current happenings in and out of the news,i was not disappointed which is why i gave 5 stars if as he said this is his last tour he certainly went out on a high.
