Mock the Week's resident panel pundit Frankie Boyle graces London's Hackney Empire stage in this, his first live stand-up DVD. Frankie's humour may be darker than dark at times, but his wit is so quick you'll barely have time to chastise yourself before laughing at his deliciously un-PC wisecracks.
"Master of the cruel one-liner"--Evening Standard
"His eye for absurdity is as sharp as his suits"--Guardian
Critically acclaimed comedian Frankie Boyle presents his hotly-anticipated first live stand-up DVD. Recorded live during his sell-out shows at London’s Hackney Empire, Frankie’s unique brand of observational comedy and brutal but perfectly constructed one-liners prove he is one of the best gag writers in the business.
As the stand out act on top-rated satirical comedy show Mock The Week, the sharp-suited Scotsman shows us just a slice of what he’s capable of. In this DVD he unleashes his razor-sharp wit upon the audience with jokes that are too near the knuckle for TV, constantly venturing onto thin ice with outrageous jibes that could be utterly offensive if not delivered with equal measures of visceral cheek and sarcasm, demonstrating the full force of his comic prowess.

When I heard he was coming to my home town of Taunton I immediately snapped up tickets to see him. It's not often an act of his stature comes to visit. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the show and was in stitches throughout, as were the rest of the audience from what I could see. Yes, some of the jokes I had heard before on Mock the Week but this only accounted for around 10% of the show. The rest was fresh to my ears and some of it was obviously brand new material as he was talking about events that had only happened that week. Personally I thought that on the night his interaction with the audience was fantastic and appeared to be 'off the cuff', even if the "what do you do?" line did wear a bit thin come the end. However, be warned... If you don't like the use of the word 'c**t' do not go to see Frankie as it's used very frequently.
So good was Frankie's performance that I had to go out and buy the DVD. To be honest it was a bit of a waste of money cos the routine was exactly the same as the show, minus the recent topical stuff. Even the cruel remarks to the audience were the same. So much for being off the cuff! It soon became clear why he kept asking the audience what they did for work. Any other questions would have required Frankie to make something up on the spot instead of the well rehearsed replies he used at both the live show I went to and the DVD. To be fair to him though I was kind of expecting this to be the case.Read more ›
From the get go on this DVD however, it was a tad disappointing. As said in other reviews, 90-99% OF THE MATERIAL ON THIS DVD HAS BEEN ON MOCK THE WEEK. Because of this, I was a bit annoyed. I understand the nature of standup (i.e. having set jokes, opening up sets of people in the audience to come back to later in the night etc) but to use this amount of material again is unbelieveable.
From his fast wit, off the cuff, shock factor humour on mock the week to this...i don't know, it's a bit difficult to explain. When you watch this DVD and you see the exact same jokes, same hand movements, same everything (when you believed what you saw on mock the week was totally off the cuff & original) then you'll see what I mean & what i'm trying to explain.
On this DVD in particular, he just seems like he's out to do a job and theres no genuine connection between the entertainer & the audience...when he presumably can't think of any jokes of hand, he then picks off people in the audience for what becomes, for the most part, predictable.
I don't want to cause any arguments here, but check out Billy Connelly...yes, they go down different routes in terms of humour but with Billy Connelly, you genuinely believe & feel a connection...and he comes out wanting to make that connection.
Bit of advice...don't buy this DVD - if you're needing some Frankie Boyle stuff, buy the mock the week DVD instead. The fast paced environment of mock the week is much more suited to his humour.
Frankie Boyle's humour isn't to everyone's taste, not so much near the knuckle as dead on it; crude, rude and offensively hilarious.
It's true that you've heard quite a number of the jokes before, but 90-99% of them? Come on. Each of the old favourites we've all heard before from Mock the Week was sandwiched between new, extremely funny observations and quick witted remarks. I'm the sort of sad freak who's watched all the Mock the Week episodes and relived them all on Dave. (So glad i wasn't sitting front row for any of Frankie's shows, he'd have had a field day taking the P out of me, i'm sure!) So if he's said the jokes before, i've heard 'em. And you know what? It's still bust a gut funny. Afterall, you go and see the bands you like live and buy their cds to hear your favourite songs, why isn't it the same for comedians and jokes?
In conclusion, this is an absolute must for Frankie fans, but if you'll be disappointed by anything less than a whole new act of jokes, then maybe have a re-think before clicking 'add to basket'.

I use to quite like Frankie Boyle but I sometimes find his humor a bit too vulgar.
Maybe worth a watch if you like him but i'm trading it in.
Typical Frankie. Entertaining but probably offensive to many. If you already like his act then you'll like this.Published 2 months ago by Jimi Man
Boyle's sense of humour is extremely brutal and cold, especially when he gets the audience involved, but his ingenious wit and potty mouth just have me in stitches all the time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by The Comptons
