Following a sold out five-week run at the West End’s Garrick Theatre and having sold out here last autumn, comedy legend Frank Skinner is returning to De Montfort Hall with his critically acclaimed stand-up show Showbiz.
Prior to his west end triumph, the last twelve months have seen Frank perform sold-out runs at London’s Leicester Square Theatre, the Edinburgh fringe, and a 45-date national UK tour, making Showbiz the must-see comedy event of the year.
