NOTES TO EDITORS

Frank Skinner’s live career began in 1987 when he spent £400 of his last £435 booking a room at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Four years later in 1991 he returned to the city and beat fellow nominees Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard to take home comedy’s most prestigious prize, The Perrier Award. Frank’s last live show, Man In a Suit, sold out its debut run at London’s Soho Theatre and a subsequent five week residency at the Leicester Square Theatre. Frank performed Man In a Suit for 24 consecutive nights at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2014 and went on to release the show on DVD through Universal Studios UK.

In 2018 Frank TV credentials included writing and starring as Johnny Cash in Johnny Cash & the Ostrich – a one-off special forming part of the successful Urban Myths series airing on Sky Arts, as well as hosting a seventh series of BBC1’s Room 101.

As a radio presenter, Frank’s award-winning Absolute Radio show attracts over one million listeners per week, has achieved 10 million podcast downloads and saw him inducted into the Radio Academy’s Hall of Fame in 2016. Frank has carried out exclusive feature interviews for Absolute Radio outside of his Saturday morning show with Nobel Peace Prize-winning former Vice President Al Gore and Russell T Davies, former executive producer of Doctor Who. Frank has written and starred in three series of the critically-acclaimed comedy drama series Don’t Start for BBC Radio 4 and has created and hosted two series of his comedy panel show The Rest is History for BBC Radio 4.

FRANK SKINNER created The Frank Skinner Show (ITV), 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 hosted three series of Frank Skinner’s Opinionated for BBC Two, and recently presented a one-off documentary, Frank Skinner on Muhammad Ali, for BBC One. Frank has hosted BBC One’s Have I Got News for You five times, and in 2014 he guest starred in an episode of Doctor Who.

With David Baddiel, Frank Skinner created and presented Fantasy Football and Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned (ITV). Alongside The Lightning Seeds the pair attained a record breaking four number one hits with the football anthem Three Lions, following England reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2018.
