Frankie Boyle is a Scottish comedian and writer, well known for his pessimistic and often controversial sense of humour.
Whilst doing a teacher-training course in Edinburgh at the age of 23, Boyle began doing stand-up routines. He got his big break after performing at The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh, a venue that has also helped launch the careers of Stewart Lee, Johnny Vegas, Dara Ó Briain and Michael McIntyre. He is best known for his appearances as a permanent panellist on seven series of the comedy panel show Mock the Week. Boyle has also made guest appearances on several other popular panel shows including Have I Got News for You, 8 out of 10 Cats, Would I Lie to You?, You Have Been Watching, Never Mind the Buzzcocks (as guest host and team captain), and Argumental.
Boyle has toured extensively, playing over 100 dates on a sold out run that stretched from October to December 2007. Between March and December 2010, he toured with a show entitled I Would Happily Punch Every One Of You In The Face, and in 2012 tours with The Last Days of Sodom.
Boyle is also a proficient writer, who has contributed to Jimmy Carr's Distraction and Sean Lock's TV Heaven, Telly Hell. In 2009, Boyle released his autobiography, followed by another book, Work! Consume! Die!, in October 2011. In 2012, Boyle hosted The Boyle Variety Show. He has also written for The Sun, satirising the weekly news as he previously did on Mock the Week.
