<p>Frankie Boyle</p>
<p>Frankie Boyle’s foul-mouthed comedy attracts ire and admiration in equal measure. The Scottish raconteur is well known for his controversial sense of humour, having touched upon topics ranging from down’s syndrome to Jimmy Savile. Owing to his creative use of the language, it’s probably not too much of a surprise that Boyle holds a BA in English Literature from Sussex University.</p>
<p>However, what might come as more of a surprise is that Boyle trained to be a teacher, having spent a period after graduating working with mental health patients. “I worked in an asylum for a year, and then community care homes with schizophrenics.” Boyle claimed, in an interview with Julie Hamill. “I wanted to work with people with learning disabilities, but in mental health you can’t be promoted without a mental health nursing qualification before going into social work or teaching.” Boyle noted were it not for his comedy career, he’d probably still be working in healthcare, having applied to work with The School for the Blind and others.</p>
