Review: Frank Skinner On Demand With..., BBC iPlayer

I wasn’t sure whether to review this series. Judging by the first episode Frank Skinner’s latest BBC online show is basically 20 minutes-worth of plugs for other BBC online shows with a few gags lobbed in. Each week Skinner is joined by a special guest from the comedy world and they conduct their chin-wag in a place where the guest watches online programmes.

Edinburgh Preview: Everyone's A Winner

I know that Edinburgh should be about looking forward rather than looking back, but 2014 may be the year that more previous Edinburgh Comedy Award winners are appearing at the Festival than ever before. Of course, there are more Edinburgh Comedy Award winners than ever before, but there does seem to be a plethora of them returning. Is it to cash in on their fame? Is it to show the young whippersnappers how it’s done? Is it just sentiment and trying to recapture the spirit they had when it all began? Is it all that and more?
