Product Description

Frankie Boyle’s Tramadol Nights is a six-part series that mixes Frankie’s outrageous and often controversial stand up with pre-filmed sketches in which he picks apart all aspects of modern life. Everything is given a uniquely Frankie spin – scabrous, sharp and scathing – a no holds barred comedy that promises everything you already know and love about Frankie with even more added bite.

Among the sketches in the new series is ‘Untitled Street’: a new BBC soap opera which is so politically correct that actor’s faces are blanked out to avoid causing offence and plots are so ambiguous that the viewers have guess for themselves what it’s all about. Others include ‘Columbian Showbiz News’, where anyone who’s anyone is invariably shot dead before they make it to the red carpet and a new documentary ‘Life in the 2050 house’. Is it all living with robots? Not quite. Boyle satirizes everything we love and loathe about British culture, mixing sketches with stand-up and delivering unadulterated comedy that’s not the faint-hearted. The UK’s most fearless and uncompromising comic at the top of his game, expect brass neck and belly laughs in abundance.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD version is censored... 13 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
The highly-controversial joke about Katie Price has been cut from the DVD edition. It should have appeared at about 14'49" into the second episode, just before the joke about Stephen Hawking.

There is no warning on the packaging that the DVD version is cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars HATE THE WEEK 1 Jan 2012
Format:DVD
Things are so bad in comedy nowadays i have resorted to becoming a Frankie Boyle fan.Stand up comedy is fast becoming the career choice of the privately educated silver spoon dangling from their mouth middle classes who would've otherwise embarked on a gilded career in finance.
Perpetual guests on woeful panel shows,recycling their 5 year old material on endless Dave repeats these performing chimps from you're Russell Howards to Andy Parsons now play to 10,000 people in various enormo domes round the country.Blimey i remember when Newman And Baddiel playing Wembley Arena was a cultural event.
Even bottom of the barrel Al Murray can do it nowadays.Arena comedy sponspored by Dave.
Richard Pyror and Bill Hicks would be spinning in their graves.
In this soulless context a hateful,spiteful comedian like Frankie Boyle becomes a valid proposition.Almost needed.
When watching Tramadol Nights i WANTED to be offended...blimey anything other then midly amused.
I am tired of hearing routines concerning chicken shops,asking for directions,hoodies.....the retinas of a modern audience have been scorched by images of unlawful wars,riots,corrupt politicians and this wet behind the ears material just simply doesn't cut it.
The laughter at a Frankie Boyle gig is far more uncomfortable,awkward rather then the moronic laughter of the masses at some gig at Wembley where the audience have paid 50 quid to see some auto cued mannequin deliver another harmless insipid,vapid routine.Just laughing to get their moneys worth.
Frankie Boyle is no Lenny Bruce but seems to be the only comedian who doesn't court acceptance or popularity.He seemingly wants to invite derision and outrage.Good on em.I doubt you will be hearing Boyle providing a nice cheeky voice over for investment adverts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tramadol? You'll certainly need it. 15 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
I've been a big fan of Frankie's comedy for a while before this, and to be honest, I really didn't know what to make of this upon first viewing.

First of all, it must be stated that not a single fan of Frankie's controversial and relentlessly shocking comedic style can be disappointed by the stand up routines. That is undeniable. However, the problem I found was the sketches. There really are some genuinely hilarious ones, like the twisted "Magic Wee-Hing" skit and a brilliant one mocking soap operas and TV censorship in the first episode. However, the vast majority are of poor quality. It could well be because of their boderline infantile fascination with sex, but I don't think that would be a problem if a little more variety was exemplified. Of course, none of them aren't inkeeping with what you'd expect from Frankie, yet still most lack a certain quality, possibly the energy if not inventiveness, that it severely requires.

Of course, it can't be too heavily chastised; the man himself informed an interviewer that he was very happy with it, stating that it was intended to be total nihlism. No one can deny that he's certainly acheieved that. I think it primarily requires the right frame of mind to admire it for what he was trying to achieve; and this certainly is not a mainstream understanding of comedy.

If I'm perfectly honest, I really enjoy it, despite it's various flaws. It's perfectly Frankie. What more could a fan ask for? Of course, if you were to buy this by chance or for pure interest, be very, very wary; in basic terms, it's the definitive polar opposite of Michael McIntyre. But nonethless it's worth a buy, just for an experience.

The stand up parts of the DVD are very good. The sketches are dreadful. Not funny at all. I am a big fan of his stand up. I would fast forward through the sketches as I did in the end. The stand up parts are good and I couldn't sit through the sketches as they were that bad. I'm unsure why he went in this direction. 2 of his 3 stand up DVDs have been superb and this one was a mistake.

3.0 out of 5 stars wishy washy 24 May 2014
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
boyle to me is everything that is right about 21st century comedy, edgy,in your face, cut throat and thats what i like. This series is strongish , the stand up is good although i have heard bits before. The sketches are head in hand shock worthy but the head can stay in the hands at times with their average feel. Some of the sketches are top drawer though. Boyle is a genius in many many ways but sketches may not be his thing.

To put no finer point on it, I would sooner poke my own eyes out with a rusty corkscrew than ever watch his again - and I'm a huge fan of Frankie - the naughty boy, him!
