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.

"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
