Top comedian Frank Skinner is bringing his latest show to Aberdeen.
The funnyman will play the Music Hall on Friday November 15, as part of his new Showbiz tour.
Frank is hitting the road for the first time in four years and will perform at 44 venues across the UK and Ireland.
Tickets went on sale today and Aberdeen Performing Arts (APA) expects them to be in demand.
Steven Milne, cultural programme manager for APA, said: “Frank Skinner has been at the top of his game as a comedian, actor, author and TV and radio presenter for the last 30 years – we can’t wait to welcome him to the Music Hall in November.”
Frank announced the Showbiz tour during a non-stop 10-hour radio show, which marked the 10-year anniversary of his career at Absolute Radio.
The award-winning Frank Skinner Show, which attracts more than 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.
The comedian’s 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.
Frank’s TV credentials in 2018 included writing and starring as Johnny Cash in Johnny Cash and the Ostrich – a one-off special forming part of the successful Urban Myths series airing on Sky Arts, as well as hosting BBC One’s Room 101.
He created The Frank Skinner Show for ITV, which ran for nine years, attracting 11 million viewers at its peak.
Frank 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.
He also penned the England World Cup anthem Three Lions with his frequent TV co-star David Baddiel.
Alongside his regular show on Absolute Radio, Frank has carried out exclusive feature interviews for the station with a number of esteemed guests including Nobel Peace Prize-winning former Vice President Al Gore and Russell T Davies, former executive producer of Doctor Who.
He has also 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.
