Frankie Boyle at his best as always, his humour is brilliant. Ive probably watched this about 15 times and i still laugh at every one of his jokes. Ignore the 1 star reviews if you are not easily offended and buy this DVD.

Frankie Boyle is the only comedian ever that I laugh out loud to. Remember comedy? That thing where you take the mick for a laugh! Well, this man does just that and he is pure entertainment. In a world where everyone is so afraid of speaking their minds anymore and just having a good old laugh about anyone and anything for fear of upset, it is so refreshing for someone to just come out and say what the hell he thinks. Yes he's rude, crude and near the knuckle but come on, we all know what he's like by now so for goodness sake if you don't like his material, don't watch him but purleese stop moaning that you don't like him! It's honestly not rocket science is it? It's actually quite simple. Don't buy this or watch any programmes with him in if it upsets you. You do come pre-warned! If however like me and thousands, nay millions, like me who do enjoy him, then crack open a bottle of wine and settle down to laugh till you ache!!

Frankie Boyle's new DVD is what you'd expect from him, rude, crude and about as politically correct as a far right extremist - he doesn't hold back, and yes, this used to be OK on Mock The Week, but now it's getting old. Boyle rattles out his jokes which he's using on his Channel 4 show anyway, so there's nothing new. Expect jokes about Jade Goody, Susan Boyle and other things.

What disappoints me is the fact Boyle is recycling his jokes, I can imagine him reading this review and laughing at me and saying "you cannie take a joke wee man" but really he's having a laugh at our expense, he knows he will bring in the MTW punters - who he now absolutely hates, and even rips a chunk out of Russell Howard's arm too.

The stuff isn't classy, it's even on the verge of being Bernard Manning - I used to like Frankie, but I think success has made him even worse, his distinctive lack of taste and jokes about child abuse really is quite over the top - and maybe he should think about edgy comedy that wouldn't be so off hand, he'd be excellent then.

There are some extras, like an interview he did with some MySpace blogger, which was OK, but his attitude towards MTW is sad really, as he's biting the hand that feeds.

I'd recommend this to people who like him, and his extreme crudeness, otherwise don't buy this on a whim for a friend, as you could end up regretting it.

Come on Frankie, we know you can do better than this man!

I bought this dvd as a fan of Frankie Boyle, so I knew I'd like it regardless, however, I'm not a sun-reading, knuckle-headed imbecile, which sadly, he's lately began to attract to his brand of humour, (similarly Al Murray has this problem as of late).

He is a very good comedian, offensive yes, but very funny!

I own both of his dvds and I have to say this one is my favourite of the two, the jokes are superb, his timing is amazing, and although he can seem abrasibe at times, he is still a very talented comedian, and this dvd does him justice.

If you get offended by everything, best to avoid it, because you wont enjoy this at all, if however you realise it's all just a joke, a harmless joke, then I highly recommend it!

I went to the DVD record at Hammersmith Apollo and the show was awesome - we were crying with laughter! There's no doubt he's controversial - his comedy is edgy, no-holds-barred and often un-pc but he's hilarious - the best in the business in my opinion and apparently won;t be touring after this year! :-(

I've been a fan of Frankie since he appeared on the Live Floor Show waaaay back in the day but I'll be honest, this new DVD is just terrible. Not only is his appearance brief, with no encore, he has quite clearly gone the same way Family Guy has. By this I mean that he used to be a hilarious, articulate and witty comedian with fun material and the occasional joke that made you gasp and then laugh at the cheek of it, but now he's just desperate to shock.

The whole act wears pretty thin about 10 minutes in when you realise that most of his audience now aren't comedy fans, just idiots who turn up to be insulted by a painfully unfunny comedian. The problem with this kind of "humour" is that Boyle can hide behind the premise of folks "not being able to take a joke" if they don't find this tour funny. As a former fan I can honestly say that his material on this DVD is basically made up of shock one liners and jokes that he's recycled from MTW and his own tv show, these could be hilarious if placed in a proper comedy act sparingly but fall short as his whole act relies entirely on pre-written bile with no originality or grace to hold it together.

This DVD is honestly a waste of your money - if you're set on buying this 80 minute drivel, yes its only an hour and a half long, then watch some segments of it online first and see if you honestly find it funny or you're just so desperate to find his "edgy humor" funny that you failed to see where he stopped being a acerbic wit and started being a lazy shock artist.

I love Frankie Boyle and I think he can be a very funny man. I don't understand why people get so upset about some of the things he says, for one he knows it's a joke and for two of you don't like him no one is forcing you to listen to him. The only thing that disappointed me about this dvd was that it had a lot of content that I'd already heard, it still made me laugh again though.

I saw Frankie on this tour and he was brilliant. Superb one liners with his usual quick wit and cruel jokes. If you liked his previous DVD then you will love this and If you didnt then this wont win you over.

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

I love Frankie Boyle, Mock the Week, his DVDs etc. However, I have noticed that almost every word he says in this DVD (his usual destruction of the front row aside) is also used in his new TV show Tramadol Nights and previous episodes of Mock the Week.

Loved it, just a shame he couldn't come up with some different material. It's a bit pointless watching it knowing what he's going to say next because you saw it last night on Channel 4.

If you haven't seen Tramadol Nights, you'll love it.
