Frank Skinner will perform brand new stand-up in an intimate space at the Ulster Hall, on the 23 November 2019
Since his last tour, Frank’s only live comedy appearances have been with The Man With No Show, which saw him perform an hour of completely improvised stand-up comedy with no material and no set list. Now Frank is back after four years.

Frank announced the Showbiz tour during a non-stop 10-hour radio show, which marked the 10 year anniversary of his hugely successful career at Absolute Radio. Frank’s award-winning show, The Frank Skinner 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 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 stand-up 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.
He's in Belfast for one night only, playing at our very own Ulster Hall.
