Andrew Collins sits in

Multi-award-winning stand-up comedian Frank Skinner joins Andrew on Wednesday to chat about the return of his topical comedy show, Frank Skinner's Opinionated.

Frank is also President of the Samuel Johnson Society, a keen ukulele fan and has recently completed a documentary investigating the life of George Formby for BBC Four. His previous TV shows include The Frank Skinner Show (BBC ONE, ITV 1), which is widely credited as setting the tone for the modern comedic chat show and ran for nine years, attracting 11 million viewers at its peak. He has written two books, the first of which was Frank Skinner by Frank Skinner, the top selling autobiography of 2002, spending 46 weeks in The Sunday Times Bestseller List. His second book, the Richard & Judy Book Club Award-winning Frank Skinner On The Road chronicled his 2007, sell-out, return to stand-up a decade after his then record-breaking 6,000-seater gig at Battersea Power Station.
