Frankie Boyle is to get his own show – named after a highly addictive painkiller.

The six-part Frankie Boyle’s Tramadol Nights will be shown on Channel 4 and is a mixture of his no-holds barred stand-up routine and comedy sketches.

The controversial 38-year-old comic fell out with the BBC when he quit Mock The Week last year.

He accused the corporation of cowardice after he was rebuked for telling a joke about Palestine.

The Scottish comic said the BBC was a ‘great institution’ which had become ‘cravenly afraid of giving offence’.

Boyle also attracted criticism after describing Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington as looking like ‘someone who’s looking at themselves in the back of a spoon’.

Details of the shows were revealed as part of Channel 4’s autumn schedule. Boyle will be joined on the channel by relative unknown Morgana Robinson, who also gets her own comedy show.

Other highlights include a docu-soap set on the streets of London’s trendy Notting Hill and gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell presenting an hour-long documentary about Pope Benedict XVI to mark his visit in September.

There are also returns for Gordon Ramsay and Jamie Oliver. Oliver’s Thirty Minute Meals will see the chef whip up a whole meal from scratch in just half an hour.

Peep Show returns for its seventh series, making it the longest-running comedy in the channel’s 28-year history, and there will be another series of The Inbetweeners.
