Comic Frankie Boyle - at the centre of a storm for insulting Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington - may no longer be on the BBC payroll after quitting satirical show Mock The Week. But his smutty humour is still in demand with public-speaking outfit JLA, who advertise his services for a one-off fee of £5,000 to £10,000.
Interestingly, his former colleague, Irishman Dara O'Briain, is also on JLA's books, but commands a significantly higher fee. While Boyle is a 'B-grade' performer, O'Briain is 'A-grade' and costs £10,000 to £25,000.
