Frankie Boyle barred from Wales Millennium Centre over Harvey joke

By
Frankie Boyle has been told that he cannot perform at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff because of his controversial joke about Katie Price's son Harvey.

The Scottish comedian had hoped to play the venue, but told Twitter followers yesterday (February 13) that he had been informed he was not welcome.

He wrote: "The venue I wanted has wished to protect the delicate people of Wales from my filth."

According to The Mirror, a spokesman for the Wales Millennium Centre said: "I can confirm that we were approached last year at the height of the controversy over the comments made on Frankie Boyle's TV show about a disabled child.

"Wales Millennium Centre prides itself on its accessibility policies and is home to the Touch Trust, a charity which provides arts activities to people of all ages with the most profound disabilities.

"In the light of this, and after careful consideration, the Centre made a programming decision not to take this booking at that particular time."

Boyle caused controversy in 2010 with a joke about Katie Price's disabled son Harvey, with Price making a complaint to Ofcom.
