5 things to do today at the Frank Skinner Showbiz show – Garrick Theatre, London


Have a pre-show drink whilst waiting for warm-up act Pierre Novellie at one of the licensed bars at The Garrick. The small bar directly behind the stalls is particularly good and atmospheric.


The excellent Pierre Novellie will be on stage for around 25 minutes and you will be entertained with stories about South Africa and why the Brittish are obsessed about having their food wet.


After a short interval take your seat for Frank Skinner. A seat in the front row will guarantee a bit of interaction so make sure you are up for it and go with it.


Listen to Frank’s hilarious stories including the Royal Family, life on tour, being a dad, call the midwife and Bruce Forsyth. The night we saw Frank he had the audience in hysterics and many of the audience had been devotees of Frank through his illustrious career.


Leave the show thinking you can also be as funny as Frank ( I doubt it) and go for a meal. The excellent restaurant FUMO is close by and well worth a try. The monkfish is exceptional.

Frank Skinner Showbiz Live in the West End runs until Saturday 15th February at the Garrick Theatre.
