News: Get Intimate With Frank Skinner

frank skinner

Frank Skinner has announced a nine-show run in London. The West Midlands comedian and Absolute Radio DJ will be premiering his Man In A Suit show at the Soho Theatre from November 14 - 16 and November 18 - 23. It certainly makes a change from paying uber-venues – Skinner was one of the first UK comedians to do supersized stand-up when he appeared in front of 6000 people at Battersea Power Station in 1997. The attraction of the Soho Theatre, where he did warm-ups earlier this year, is obvious. It is small, intimate and only a short walk from his home in Covent Garden. Tickets available here.

Skinner, 56, is the latest comedian to be tempted back onstage again following returns to stand-up from Alexei Sayle, David Baddiel, Jack Dee and Alan Davies, while the likes of Jo Brand and Jenny Eclair have never really gone away. Even Woody Allen has been talking about doing stand-up again. Skinner has not stayed away from stand-up as long as Allen though, having gigged intermittently in recent years, but maybe if these dates work out a big tour will follow. So does laugh begin at 40? 50? Read on here...
