Your Guide to Hell
By Frankie Boyle
How to survive a political inferno
Brexit ... Trump ... Syria ... The Chilcot Enquiry ... and now a vicious General Election: it's not been a good year for the world. Luckily Frankie Boyle is here with his own biting brand of satire, to guide us through this political wasteland we all call home.
Whether talking about Nigel Farage as 'a sort of end of level boss for Freudian psychoanalysis', spending billions on Trident as 'like convincing a tramp to buy a bazooka', or America as a country that has gone 'from The West Wing to a sitcom where the incidental music involves a tuba', Your Guide to Hell cuts through the bullshit to give a savage, hilarious, and at heart, utterly humane political commentary about the world we live in.
Frankie first established himself as a household name on BBC2's topical news quiz Mock The Week, fast garnering a devoted audience for his unique brand of razor-sharp satirical comedy. Since leaving the show to pursue other projects, he has continued to be one of the most popular and sought-after comics working in the UK, creating his own Channel 4 shows Tramadol Nights and The Boyle Variety Performance, while also performing sold-out tours across the UK. Frankie also previously wrote regular columns for the Guardian newspaper, three of which were among the 40 most-read articles on the paper's website in 2015.
