The funniest man in the world
11 February 2010 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Well, another reviewer says they laughed at this twice. They also recommended Michael McIntyre instead, which I think tells you everything you need to know.

I could be rude about them, but then this wouldn't make it past submission.

In fact, although many of Frankie's jokes ended up on Mock the Week (not the other way around), a lot of this is far too offensive to get on TV, and much of it is off the cuff. It's hilarious from start to finish. You will hurt. What's great about Frankie is that he is actually interested in comedy as a form, and is trying to be individual (if originality is rather difficult these days for the angry comic). He is also genuinely trying to make us think about what is acceptable content for a joke. If, like me, you think humour is one of the only ways we can cope with tragedy and horror, and that therefore anything is acceptable providing it is not exploitative, you will love this DVD. If, however, you think cancer, rape, cerebral palsy and Down's Syndrome are unsuitable areas for comedy, do not repeat do not watch this. And while you're at it, have a rethink. Because this is as close as British comedy has come to a Bill Hicks or Lenny Bruce type of comic. Long may he reign.
