JLA in the Press

Comic Frankie Boyle, who was last week criticised for making jokes about Down’s syndrome, clearly finds cruelty sells.
The former Mock The Week panellist has had his fees increased by public speaking agency JLA.
Last year, Glasgow-born Boyle caused offence on the show with smutty remarks about Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington.
His services were then being advertised by JLA at between £5,000 and £10,000 a time.
Now, perhaps commensurate with his public disapproval, the company have promoted him to their ‘A-grade’ speaker status, with fees of £10,000 to £25,000.
‘We don’t comment about the individual situations behind people on our books,’ says JLA boss Jeremy Lee.
‘But as a general remark, it’s self-evident that people’s fees can go up or down.’
