1.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully he keeps to his word and retires from stand-up, 8 Jan. 2011
I always found Frankie funny on Mock the Week and enjoyed his first DVD but this is absolute drivel. I wonder if he puts any thought into his jokes, he has the most predictable act going Jade Goodie jokes (STILL), the same old crap about Scotland, Susan Boyle and completely out dated stuff like John Lesley!!

I found it sad to watch, it to me was quite pathetic. I'm no stranger to Black Comedy...my favourite comedians are the likes of Bill Hicks and George Carlin so Im mildly trained in not getting offended by jokes or vulgarity. The way he picks on the audience I found horrible, making harsh comments about their personal appearance and being a bully. All I saw was an insecure man on stage repeating the same jokes he has been for god knows how long.

Yes, well done Frankie you did shock everyone by bullying a blind kid (Katie Price's son Harvey) but it just makes you look like a troubled excuse of a man. I don't like what Ive seen of this or Tramadol Nights on C4 which is dire and can't wait for him to be off my screen (not that I'll watch any of his work again). When I first saw him on Mock the Week I thought he had true potential to possibly be a comedy great but that is well and truly in the past, good riddance.

Art Direction Explained, At Last!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read., 31 Dec. 2010
A good book which has been well designed, will be referring back to it in the future; offers alot of sound advice. I would have liked to have seen more writing by the author; the book is split into 2... several chapters by the author and then about 100 pages split between working A.Ds and illustrators who offered their advice. I was happy with their input but was left wanting more from the author. I would recommend to anyone who either wants to become an A.D. or has to work with one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent homage, 31 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great film about the life and work of Bill Hicks, the collection of interviews and animations really elevate this documentary to something special; one real gripe however that I have with the film is that I feel there should have been more clips of Bill....I felt there could have been a few more and that the docu was over weighed with interviewees (good ones at that). However with that being said there is an amazing Disc 2 which is full of great extras. Packaging, design, animation, cinematography & extras as well as shining new lights onto one of comedies all time and timeless greats.
