intermittantly funny - likely to offend some people
on 25 July 2016
Frankie Boyle won't be to everyone's taste. This DVD deserves its 18 certificate - there is a lot of swearing and some of the subject matter is, er, how shall I put this, quite rude. Boyle seems to delight in being extremely near the knuckle. He knows he's going to offend some people and he plays to that fact as much as he can. Personally, I think that's a bit of a shame. It's not that he isn't funny, it's just that I think he's funniest when he's not trying to be offensive, and of course being funny is his job, so I think I'd prefer it if he wasn't always trying to push the envelope of acceptability. I believe that deep down Boyle is very much one of the good guys, but he's always going to split the crowd.
