Biography: Frank Skinner

Chris Collins played his first gig, in December 1987, at the Birmingham Anglers' Association. As there was already a Chris Collins in Equity, he used the name of a chap on his dad's dominoes team - Frank Skinner.

Frank's down-to-earth brand of humour won him the 1991 Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, beating Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard to the prize.

Since then he has gone on to become a household name. As talented a stand-up comedian as he is a razor sharp talk show host, Frank Skinner has earned his place at the top of the comedy game. In early 2014 he performed his stand-up show ‘Man in a Suit’ at Leicester Square Theatre.

His friendship with David Baddiel produced the Fantasy Football and Unplanned series. But some would say that their ultimate achievement was co-writing and co-singing football song Three Lions which became a favourite on the terraces in the European Championship in 1996.

His first autobiography, titled aptly "Frank Skinner" spent many weeks on the Times Best Selling list and is one of the most honest and humorous autobiographies available.  His latest book released in 2008 titled "Frank Skinner on the Road: Love, Stand-up Comedy and The Queen Of The Night" is the follow up to his original best-selling book.

Frank has released a DVD of his live performance at the Birmingham NIA, titled "Frank Skinner Stand-Up". The DVD demonstrates why Frank is one of the UK's most loved and famous comedians.
