Roy Chubby Brown could never get on TV and is regarded as a cult.
He certainly is...

Ah, sorry. You said 'cult'...

Eh, I have no problem with anyone's attempts to degrade the Royals.

I just don't think he's capable of having any empathy with the people who he makes 'fun' of. How would he feel if someone said 'I hope your mum/dad/granny/child dies'?

He'd be the first person to be up in arms.
Why would you think that?

It was on the BBC
Well, i'm not sure if that specific joke was broadcast or cut but the beeb broadcast the show so the mail might have picked up on that.

Or they had a reporter or contacts from the live gig.

I found him hilarious back on Mock The Week but now it seems he just wants to be as controversial as possible.

Because this was part of a routine which was going to be broadcast on national TV and not just a gig for a few hundred perhaps?

Me too.

The 'Queen's Pussy' joke was funny, wishing her dead is something else altogether.

humour is subjective

I think frankies funny because I get the joke the sicker the better

thats MY humour

but as usual others try to impose there point of view and cant see anyone elses

pathetic really

No.

Everyone can understand the intent, whether we laugh is the subjective.

OK, he doesn't like the Royals, but that kind of stuff really isn't necessary. I can see he's going to be totally banned from TV now and just reduced to touring.

I was listening to an interview of Frankie Boyle and Jimmy Carr and it turns out that Boyle isn't interested in touring or being on television at all really. He just kind of wandered into it. He wants to get back to writing for other people.

So he doesn't care who he offends because he doesn't have to.

Good. The sooner he buggers off from our screens the better some of us will find it then.

According to this, Boyle's jokes seem to be recycled. So much for 'new' material.

People couldn't watch him on last night's broadcast as the entire routine was removed because of its content. Because of that, the media reported it.

I wouldn't pay 1.50 to see him tbh.

I think those jokes are funny. I don't really understand why there's so much fuss over a joke about filling up a body with helium. The other jokes in that article are no worse than ones you'd hear other comedians tell, but because it's Frankie Boyle everyone is outraged anyway.

I saw his dvd, the 'Michael Jackson's Children's Hospital' joke just left me like... "There's something not right with this guy"

I've seen him do that joke live. I couldn't breathe from laughing so hard

You can't see it as the entire routine was removed.

I don't advertise as a comedian, though.

The reaction is well over the top. Those who don't like it can suck it, as far as I'm humbly concerned. The way we grant the royal family special protection reminds me of North Korea. How dare he insult our beloved Queen is no different to the hysterical reaction by some in NK if someone were to insult the dear leader. It's absolutely pathetic - royalists need to grow up, or shut up.

How so? My boyfriend lives in South Korea and I'm off out there in April. Do tell us something we don't know.

I'm not into the Royal Family, but imagine if we had you as our personality instead, Wha.

They give entertainment, and you don't, get used to it.
