Scottish comedian Frankie Boyle, will host its upcoming Golden Joysticks, taking place on October 31 at the Park Lane Hilton in London.

“This year’s Golden Joystick Awards are shaping up to be the best yet, thanks to the support of our sponsor Virgin Media and Frankie Boyle signing up as host,” said event boss Emma Parkinson.

“The industry has always seen the Joysticks as a focal point of its calendar and long may this continue. Increasingly, it has become a focal point for mainstream press attention and a celebration of the games industry. As we aim for a million votes, we need the help of your fans and customers’ make the wider world proud of our industry.”

We’d care if we were going. We’re open to bribery if anyone has a spare ticket.

    He’s a regular on Mock the Week and always guaranteed to say stuff on the riskier side of comedy. He’s very funny.
