Frankie Boyles Tramadol nights

Anyone been watching this? Pure class if not watch it on C4 catch up classics like

Jordan and Pete are still fighting over the kids the loser gets to keep Harvie

Conversation stoppers at a dinner party who's watching Maddie

It's funny. But there's a massive part that seems to be him seeing how far he can go. A lot of his material does appear to be nicked from sickipedia though.

I thought some of the sketches were a bit OTT, and not funny, the "pussy monster" one, more immature than I'd expect from Frankie. I much prefer his stand up style and his wittiness a la mock the week.

I saw Frankie Boyle live a few weeks ago and while the stand up show was phenomenal, I was disappointed to see all the jokes recycled for the stand up sections of his show, even the bits that look improvised are all well rehearsed with every last joke told over and over again at his live shows.

I find the sketches in Tramadol nights pretty weak as well. Wish I hadn't bothered watching it as it's kind of spoiled the live show for me.

Couldn't agree more. After seeing him live last week and watching him on various other shows as well as Tramadol Nights, the same jokes were shoe horned in and regurgitated.
I know other comics retell the same jokes, but most tend to modify and evolve their sets, even during the same tour.

Frankie seems to be a set of oneliners he will repeat no matter what the situation.

Agree again with you ravers that the bits I thought were improvised at his show were used again and again on the front of the audience, even if they didn't fit exactly with the situation.

Bottom line is, IMO he's funny but only if you don't see him too often.

Indeed. The moment that gave it away for me, was when he was talking about using Susan Boyle as a bowling ball. He mimics the bowling action and then stops saying ''******* hell, I went for four fingers there for some reason'' referring to the size of her gopping great minge. During the live show there were laughs all round at this seemingly unrehearsed and impromptu piece of humour, unfortunately he did exactly the same thing again on Tramadol Nights, giving the game away to those who had seen the live show.

And at my show he did an impersonation and said "oh I went all gay Nazi there", seemingly again all 'off the cuff' but repeated it on his show.

Still funny though.

Not a fan of Tramadol nights at all... got bored during one of the crap sketches and switched off. Frankie Boyle can be very funny but for some reason on this show I find him mildly amusing at best. Would only watch again if I was very bored and there was abso nothing else on!
