With Frank Skinner

Frank Skinner joins Shaun ahead of his new tour to talk about the nuts and bolts of stand up and how to prop up a smile for the duration of a bad set. Frank's live career began in 1987 when he spent £400 of his last £435 booking a room at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Four years later in 1991 he returned to the city and beat fellow nominees Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard to take home The Perrier Award.
