I'm guessing anybody that would buy this DVD grew to like Frankie Boyle through 'Mock the week', I know I did. His brutal and quick wit made him the high point of what was already a great show, so when I saw his first live stand up DVD was being realised, I excitedly went out and bought it, expecting the hilarity of the panel show but possibly even funnier. I was wrong.
Instead of a flowing reel of funny banter what you get is a serious of unconnected one-liners that had already been used (much to the amusement of everyone watching the show) on 'Mock the week'. He picked out members of the audience to insult (I later saw him do the same on the live at the Apollo show, even using the exact same phrases), unfunnily.
I think I genuinely laughed twice. Very disappointing.
Save your money and go for Michael Mcintyre or Lee Evans.
