Frank Skinner is one of the biggest names in British comedy. He has enjoyed unrivalled success, both as a phenomenally popular stand-up comic and with hit TV shows, The Frank Skinner Show, Fantasy Football and Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned. He has also achieved two number one hits in the UK music charts with the football anthem Three Lions, alongside David Baddiel and The Lightning Seeds.
Between 1992 and 1997 Frank sold out four UK tours, the last of which culminated in a performance at Battersea Power Station to what was then the largest ever audience for stand-up comedy in the UK.
Frank can be heard on Absolute Radio every Saturday morning and has written newspaper columns and best-selling autobiographies.
