Frankie Boyle will take centre stage this September in a one-off comedy event, Frankie Boyle’s Referendum Autopsy, made exclusively for BBC iPlayer by Zeppotron, an Endemol company.
Filmed at Glasgow’s Britannia Panopticon in front of a live studio audience, shortly after the referendum vote on 18 September, the event will be a mix of stand-up, review, discussion and audience interaction – all connected to the subject of the referendum result and its repercussions for both Scotland and the United Kingdom.
Frankie will be joined by fellow comics as well as a series of experts and high profile figures, many of whom may well take issue with Frankie’s thoughts and opinions on matters related to the referendum.
Victoria Jaye, Head of TV Content, BBC iPlayer comments: “The Scottish Referendum is one of the most significant political events of our time and we want BBC iPlayer to draw on the power of comedy to reflect on its outcome in a special, one-off event. Frankie is uniquely placed to create this for us, as one of the leading voices in modern satire – he proved a real audience draw starring in one of our iPlayer Original Comedy Shorts earlier in the year.”
