Frank Skinner Showbiz

Why You Should Watch Frank Skinner Showbiz
Once seen as a bawdy, cheeky entertainer who dominated 90s stand-up comedy with sharp humour that often involved sexual references, the Frank Skinner of 2019 seems to be far subtler in his approach to comedy. At the age of 62, Skinner now has an immense collection of amusing stories that he shares in his own inimitable fashion. The general pace of the evening is almost always leisurely, and Skinner maintains this pace with carefully crafted punchlines and nostalgia-inducing anecdotes.
Frank Skinner famously began his career as a comedian with a gamble in 1987. With only 435 Euros left in the bank, he spent 400 Euros to secure a place at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Four years later, Skinner was chosen over comedy legends Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard for the coveted Perrier Award. He has also hosted many television and radio shows including BBC One’s Room 101, Absolute Radio Frank, and The Rest is History. Skinner is also a gifted writer who has published two autobiographies and several articles in The Times. Today, he is regarded as one of the most prolific comedians in the UK.
