Showbiz

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.

What the critics have said about Frank Skinner and Showbiz:

"A beautifully confessional new show. His material continues to improve and this is possibly his best show yet." Stephen Armstrong, The Sunday Times

"The king of stand-up." Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

"Real stand-up, real lightness of touch, real joy." Dominic Maxwell, The Times

"Skinner is warm, impeccable company and his way with a punchline is still masterful…there are numerous brilliant moments… an evening in Skinner’s company is a delight." Paul Fleckney, The Guardian

"Skinner is a comic at ease with himself and his career, and Showbiz proves to be a masterclass in owning the room." Veronica Lee, The I

"Doing what he does best… the gags just keep on coming. Stand-up’s coming home." Mark Wareham, Mail on Sunday

"Sharp punchlines…a witty, entertaining raconteur." Steve Bennett, Chortle

"He’s clearly lost none of his mojo." Sharon Lougher, Metro


This is the new rescheduled date from Wednesday 18 November 2020.

All tickets, including pre-booked venue parking, will remain valid for the new date. If you need to contact us to discuss your booking please email dmh-office@leicester.gov.uk
