Frankie Boyle has spent his entire career offending people and pushing the boundaries of what is acceptable to say. However, he has also spent his career as one of the most consistently brilliant comedians in the business.
Boyle isn’t just someone who stirs controversy for the sake of it, he uses comedy to explore the areas of society you aren’t usually able to go and comment on them. He makes strong political observations and weaves a story throughout, as well as the jokes.
In his sights here was the newly elected ‘Prime Minister’ Boris Johnson and his cabinet, and even more prominently Brexit. He got his point across with some zingers of one liners and some damning verdicts.
In whole it was just great to see Boyle back doing stand-up, on the BBC especially, and I hope he continues to do his great work.
