Frankie Boyle is a stand-up comedian and writer.
Frankie first established himself as a household name on BBC2’s topical news quiz Mock The Week, fast garnering a devoted audience for his unique brand of razor-sharp satirical comedy. Since leaving the show to pursue other projects, he has continued to be one of the most popular and sought-after comics working in the UK, creating his own Channel 4 shows Tramadol Nights and The Boyle Variety Performance, while also performing sold-out tours across the UK.
2014 saw him write and star in Frankie Boyle’s Referendum Autopsy a post-vote dissection of the Scottish independence debate for the BBC. Other recent TV credits include Live at the Apollo, Kevin Bridges: Live at the Referendum and an original comedy short for BBC iPlayer entitled Frankie Boyle and Bob Mortimer’s Cooking Show. Frankie has also been a guest on and hosted Never Mind The Buzzcocks and has made appearances on shows such as Would I Lie To You?, The Jonathan Ross Show and 8 Out Of 10 Cats.
His live work has seen him complete three nationwide sell-out tours, his latest, Last Days Of Sodom, culminating in a string of arena dates.
Frankie has to date released three DVDs. His first, Frankie Boyle Live, was the second fastest selling comedy DVD of all time with just fewer than 16,000 sales on the first day of release alone. His other two, If I Could Reach Through Your TV And Strangle You, I Would and Last Days Of Sodom, were also bestsellers.
Frankie is a prolific author, having written three books to date. His memoir, My Shit Life So Far, was a critically-acclaimed bestseller, with the two follow-ups, Work! Consume! Die! and Scotland’s Jesus, proving equally popular with readers and critics alike
