TV Review: Frankie Boyle's American Autopsy, BBC iPlayer/BBC2

The US Election was only last week and it already feels as if everything has been said about an event that has turned the world upside down. Or, more importantly in this case, that every joke has been made about it. But you can always rely on Frankie Boyle to nudge the taboo barrier a little further, which he does magnificently at the end of this topical show, painting a portrait of a post-Trump apocalypse that makes Bosch’s pictures of hell seem positively benign.

Latitude Review: Sara Pascoe

The audience in the Latitude comedy tent can be a bit of a mixed bunch. Families having a picnic, friends sheltering from the sun or the rain or just slackers and stoners flaked out after a hard night. Not necessarily comedy fans. But it was clear by the cheer when Sara Pascoe came on that a lot of people knew her and wanted to hear what she had to say, which always makes a performer happier than confusion or indifference (which seemed to be what Nick Helm was experiencing when I arrived as he was finishing).

Classic Interview: Sara Pascoe

Sara Pascoe is on a bit of a roll at the moment. She is a TV regular, she is touring the UK and her first book, Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body, has just been published and has been getting great reviews. Ooh look, here's one.


Book Review: Animal: The Autobiography of a Female Body, by Sara Pascoe

A couple of years ago every stand-up with a TV credit under their belt seemed to be knocking out an autobiography as if they were going out of style. Sara Pascoe’s first book is very different to that. Animal is more anthropology than autobiography. No mention of life on the road, big breaks or meeting celebrities, this is more of a self-help manual. Mainly for young women I would suggest, but all women and all men should read it too.
