Frankie Boyle – Prometheus Volume I (Chambers Touring)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

One of Scotland’s most controversial sons is back, with his first stand-up show at the Fringe for several years. Fresh off his new BBC show, Boyle’s material has become increasingly political, but that isn’t to say he’s cooled down what some would call his twisted view of the world. Boyle certainly appears to be enjoying himself on stage and his often sharp (if still a bit dark) analysis of his chosen topics highlights the unique approach of this incredibly successful comedian. Some followers consider him to be some sort of twisted genius and these fans will not feel short changed, however Frankie Boyle will forever be an acquired taste. This show sees him at his very best, if only for those who enjoy him.

Venue 150 @ EICC, until 28 Aug.
