You miserable, sad, tedious bastards. No-one's making you like Frankie Boyle, but don't try to make out he hasn't got anything to say or he's not one of the funniest comics around.
Below is an interview with Frankie Boyle and Jimmy Carr, where the pair recommend other comedians of their ilk. I post this, because it was a rich vein of discovery for me and we like sharing on this forum.
I appreciate some find him offensive, but by provoking though on a topic you promote it. If you push the boundaries of comedy, then you have to accept some experiments will go wrong. It does seem that currently the edgy stand up comedians are coming from abroad. So if anyone has any recommendations, let me know.
British comedians are so desperate to conform they all merge together in a polished PC mush. Too few prepared to take a risk and upset some. Interestingly our fine stable of British political cartoonist don't suffer in that way. But for stand up Frankie and John Oliver are, in my opinion, our two best and the latter works in America. Does anyone have some British recommendations ?
