Frankie Boyle – 24/2

For one night only, Scotland’s most controversial comedian is back in Brighton. Although he first gained widespread recognition as a regular panellist on the BBC show Mock the Week where his cynical, graphic and dark sense of humour propelled him into the mainstream, his first stand-up was actually at the University of Sussex Student Union. Throughout his career he has not been afraid to shock and outrage, naming Bill Hicks as one of his influences. A man of many talents, Boyle has published several books, appeared as himself in the video game, Grand Theft Auto: The Lost and Damned, played the part of Hamm in a production of Samuel Beckett’s play, Endgame, and in 2010 began publishing his own comic strip, Rex Royd. Tonight he takes to the stage in the city where his journey began with a new show, Lap of Shame which is guaranteed to sell out.
