Frank Skinner

Frank Skinner was born on January 28, 1957 in West Bromwich, West Midlands, England as Christopher Graham Collins. Despite his given first name, his parents called him Graham; all his friends referred to him, and still do, as Chris. He has two older brothers, Keith and Terrence, and an older sister, Nora. Chris left school with no qualifications and worked in a metal factory. He enrolled in night school and eventually enrolled at University and graduated with a Masters degree in English literature. After tutoring English at Halesowen College in Dudley, he chose the stage name Frank Skinner after a man in his father's pub dominoes team to start a new career. Frank Skinner's live career began in 1987 when he spent £400 of his last £435 booking a room at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He performed first ever stand up comedy gig at the Portland Club in Edgbaston, Birmingham in 1987 aged thirty. Four years later in 1991 he returned to the city and beat fellow nominees Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard to take home comedy's most prestigious prize, The Perrier Award. Now Frank Skinner is well-known as actor and author, radio and television presenter, creator and hoster for series.
