Following a sell-out London run, comedy legend Frank Skinner is bringing his latest stand up tour to Doncaster Dome on November 21.
After a career in television that has spanned since the late eighties, Frank is going back to his first love; stand up, as he brings Man in a Suit to fans across the UK.
Man in a Suit is a more subdued offering from Skinner, focusing less on swearing and smut, to deliver a more grown up, observational look at a variety of subjects including why he has amassed so many suits and what he plans to do with them.
Skinner performed his first stand up gig in 1987 and made his television debut a year later. In 2007, he performed his first stand up for ten years before venturing into the world of radio, presenting a breakfast show for Absolute Radio and writing the comedy series ‘Don’t Start’ for BBC Radio 4.
Skinner won the 1991 Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, beating Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard. He has worked with fellow comedian and close friend David Baddiel, notably on the popular late night entertainment show Fantasy Football League, from 1994–2004, and on Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned from 2000 to 2005. The duo also co-wrote and performed the football song “Three Lions” with the Lightning Seeds and the England national football team for Euro 96, which reached number one in the UK
Fans can currently see him back on TV presenting Room 101, but the lifelong West Bromwich Albion supporter is now confidently back in the stand up circuit and ready to show off his latest suit.
Tickets are available from the box office on 01302 370777 priced at £27.50.
