What the press has said about Frank Skinner’s Credit Crunch Cabaret:

“Tickets for Skinner's cabaret cost a tenner - which is hard to sneeze at, even in the chilly depths of this discontented winter. …Skinner is the ideal compere for this event: a comic everyman and a great ad-libber.”
Brian Logan, The Guardian

“An ambitious enterprise and the opening night did not disappoint. Skinner was in his element as compere, tack-sharp and topical… deserves a financier-sized bonus for his efforts… one would have to be clinically depressed not to enjoy an evening like this.”
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard
