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.
