Frankie goes hip hop (possibly) and Trevor’s busy

Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle is the latest addition to the Birmingham Comedy Festival.

Frankie will be appearing at Symphony Hall on Saturday 10 October 2015 with his new show, Hurt Like You’ve Never Been Loved.

The comic says the show is a response to the last record by US hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar. Entitled To Pimp A Butterfly, the album features contributions from Dr Dre and Pharrell Williams and reached No1 in the US and UK. (We’re not sure if Frankie is series about Kendrick … but we’re looking forward to finding out).

Tickets are available now priced £20 (+ booking fees) from

The show fills a gap left by Trevor Noah whose US TV commitments hosting The Daily Show have resulted in a postponement.

Trevor has stated that he would like to personally apologise to everyone who bought tickets for the inconvenience and is really looking forward to coming back to the UK to perform his show as soon as possible.

A rescheduled date has not been announced at this time. Full refunds available from point of purchase.
