  • Quotes

    • Frankie: In general, my stuff tends to be more challenging than the other comics I'm on with. So if everyone else is quite crowd-pleasing, I'll come on and try to tense them up with material that they don't really want, so that I've got that edge of nervousness to work with. If you did a slick set every gig you'd never really develop, you have to be dead disciplined about mixing it up and not retreating into the same old material.

    • Frankie: For a long time having a gig ruined my day. It was such a tough time and I only kept going because it was a way of earning money.

    • Frankie: What was wrong with train toilet doors that just locked, instead of this multiple choice system? If anything goes wrong, you'll be sitting there while the whole toilet wall slowly slides away, unveiling you like a prize on a quiz show. For 500 points, a shitting woman!

    • Frankie: I always wondered about that woman who had that face transplant. If you went to bed with her, would that technically count as a threesome?

    • Frankie: They're always going, don't deal with terrorists. Let's deal with them. What's Allah offering you boys, 100 virgins? We'll give you 50 slags.

    • Frankie: The average Glasgow guy now looks like he spends more time in front of the mirror than a pubescent girl. You know what? If you're going to spend 2 hours on your appearance every day why not work out you fat f**ks? If you're going to have a haircut that makes you look like a moderately powerful Pokemon, try to make sure you're body doesn't look like something that's just been fished out of a river.

    • Frankie: You got this thing on DVDs now, where they say DVD piracy funds the drug trade... Funds the drugs trade – I don't know about you, but I reckon, if you can't make money out of heroin, you're gonna struggle in general. "Oh, the problem with this crack cocaine is people can just take it or leave it – thank God we're still selling the Harry Potters!"

    • (on the topic of flying on Mock The Week)
      Frankie: There's nowhere I want to visit so much I'm willing to be fired towards it at 700mph in a tin can full of other people's farts.

    • (on the topic of Drinking on Mock The Week)
      Frankie: As a teetotal ex-alcoholic this should be quite good. I drink energy drinks now. It's good that they've finally managed to can anxiety. I'm teetotal, right, a concept that Scottish people don't understand. So I did a gig in Fife, I was on stage, and this guy was going up to the bar and he went 'Hey, I'll get you a drink as well'. I went 'Well, I used to be an alcoholic, so I don't drink any more, but thanks anyway'. And he looked at me for a bit, and then he went 'Pint of lager shandy?'.

    • (On Mock The Week as two scientists who have too much time on their hands)
      Frankie: (as Scientist 1) Shall we have a go at curing cancer?
      Frankie: (as Scientist 2) No, I'm going to see how many Fruit Pastiles it takes to choke a kestral.
