October 29, 2012, 12:53 pm -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle - who last year announced his retirement from stand-up – is returning to the mic with his incendiary brand of humour. His new show, ‘The Last Days of Sodom' comes to the Hammersmith Apollo from November 8th -11th.
Boyle has been the enfant terrible of the comedy world since the early noughties, graduating from the emcee role at Glasgow's The Stand comedy club to prime-time television on panel show Mock the Week, and his own inflammatory Channel 4 series, ‘Tramadol Nights'.
He's not for everyone, but hardcore fans will be delighted at the caustic Scot's return to the stage. Gig-goers can expect the usual boundary-pushing dark humour over the three night run, which forms a small part of a nationwide tour. In line with his fearsome reputation, tickets to the show will cost £25.
The Hammersmith Apollo is one of the capital's largest all-seater venues, with a 3,600 strong capacity for seated shows. Renovated in 2002, it remains one of the country's major comedy venues, as well as hosting everything from Riverdance to the latest touring bands.
London's premier website for events booking and information, LondonTown.com, has announced discounts on London hotels close to the Apollo. All rooms are offered at discount rates for the duration of the Boyle's run. The discounts are only available when booking directly through LondonTown.com.
