The people of Great Britain are still said to be ‘inconsolable’ after the edgy Glaswegian humourist Frankie Boyle has confirmed that he is quitting the live stage.
“The nation is beset with genuine tragedies like HIV/AIDS and paedophilia.” remarked one well-wisher standing outside the Bracknell Arts Centre stage door following the last date of his allegedly final tour. “We desperately need someone like Boyle to break the taboo that exists about these topics in the media. Boyle's retirement will only leave him with further weekly Channel four vehicles and regular guest appearances on game shows to discuss the likes of Alzheimer’s and gang rape, and that‘s just not enough.”
“Our only hope is that he will find it within him to offer another soul-searching volume of his autobiographical details in the near future.”
Harper Collins today responded to the outpouring by confirming that a follow-up to his autobiography ‘My Shit Life So Far’ has been announced. “I’m Feeling Considerably More Chipper Now My Career Has Taken Off, Thanks For Asking” is set for a June launch.
