A packed audience at the Ipswich Corn Exchange were treated to a superb stand up show from one of Britain's hottest comedians- Frankie Boyle.

For fans of the BBC's successful 'Mock the Week' show, it was a chance to see one of its funniest stars in unedited form - as Frankie delivered his hilarious views on everything from celebrities to attempts to bring Islamic terrorism to Glasgow - home of religious conflict ('and al-Qaeda doesn't even have a football team!').

Frankie kept pushing the audience's taste levels all evening, but throughout the show he kept the crowd in hysterics for well over an hour and half. In fact what was great about this performance was that he had the audience with him the whole time - even through the edgiest of subjects.

One of his strengths was in maintaining the banter with the audience - especially those close to him. Why someone with a 'Flock of Seagulls' hairstyle thinks sitting in row two is safe is beyond me, but Frankie managed take everything he got from audience and use it to great affect in his show.

To some Frankie may look like a member of The Proclaimers, but to the audience last night he looks like the next big thing for British comedy - a star!
