Skinner

About

FRANK SKINNER has just finished filming the second series of his critically acclaimed topical comedy show, Frank Skinner’s Opinionated for BBC Two. A third series will broadcast in autumn 2011. Frank also hosts Absolute Radio’s Sony Award winning Saturday morning flagship show, whose podcasts have been downloaded 6.5 million times; and is President of the Samuel Johnson Society. A keen ukulele fan, Frank recently completed a documentary investigating the life of George Formby for BBC Four; hosted the BBC Radio Three Christmas Day comedy panel show, The Right Notes in the Wrong Order; and last year reunited with David Baddiel to exclusively present a series of shows for Absolute Radio throughout the 2010 FIFA World Cup™. This series reached number one in the iTunes Top 10 comedy podcasts chart within the first week of its launch and attracted over 3 million downloads in total. Over the last 24 months, Frank has also been a columnist for The Times.

In 2009 Frank completed the triple-extended, sell-out Credit Crunch Cabaret in London’s West End, offering recession-hit Londoners the chance to experience a variety of award-winning acts for just £10 a ticket, including Michael McIntyre, Al Murray - The Pub Landlord, John Bishop, Lee Mack, Russell Howard and Chris Addison; and authored a Panorama (BBC One) special on taste and decency as well as hosting Have I Got News For You? (BBC One) and Never Mind The Buzzcocks (BBC Two). Frank’s previous TV shows include The Frank Skinner Show (BBC One, ITV 1), which is widely credited as setting the tone for the modern comedic chat show and ran for nine years, attracting 11 million viewers at its peak. He has written two books, the first of which was Frank Skinner by Frank Skinner, the top selling autobiography of 2002, spending 46 weeks in The Sunday Times Bestseller List. His second book, the Richard & Judy Book Club Award winning Frank Skinner On The Road chronicled his 2007, sell-out, return to stand-up a decade after his then record-breaking 6,000-seater gig at Battersea Power Station. With David Baddiel, Frank created and presented Fantasy Football League (BBC Two, ITV 1) and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned (ITV 1) while also, alongside the Lightening Seeds, attained three number one hits with the football anthem ‘Three Lions’.



"You could put Skinner down in front of any audience at any time and he would have them in stitches."
