Frank Skinner and Friends - two week London 2012 run on sale Friday 28th October
There was a time when Frank Skinner's comedy would have made Bernard Manning blush. However, over the years the stand-up from West Bromwich has found his biggest audience through routines that, if not 'family friendly', are certainly more cheeky than filthy.
The shift in style prompted a graduation from the working men's clubs of the Black Country to, ultimately, a two-decade television career that boasts numerous talk and improv shows, all gratefully received by a public won over by Skinner's easy, honest manner and warm charm. And it has also made him many friends, which is why 'Frank Skinner and Friends' is such a plausible premise for an evening of comedy, variety and all-round entertainment, hosted by Skinner himself.
Each night of the 12-show residency will be compered by Frank Skinner with the 'friends' comprising four different acts, with everything from comedy and music to opera and juggling. Performers already confirmed include Al Murray's Pub Landlord, Micky Flanagan, Richard Herring, Lee Nelson, Roisin Conaty (Best Newcomer, Edinburgh Festival), Edinburgh Comedy Award winner Brendon Burns, Isy Suttie, Alun Cochrane, Tom Deacon and more.
The shows represent Frank Skinner's first since his 2009 Credit Crunch Cabaret; another comedy and variety show which sought to bring top acts together for an affordable price. The show was a sold-out success; extended three times.
Frank Skinner and Friends runs at London's Noël Coward Theatre from Monday 23rd January to Saturday 4th February 2012.
We will have tickets available for all 12 dates when they go on sale at 9AM on Friday 28th October 2011, priced £16 for all seats.
Demand for tickets is expected to be very high.
