Frank Skinner - Live at the Bloomsbury Theatre (1992) [DVDRip (Xvid)]
This is the act that won Frank the Perrier award and its so raw its like rubbing salt on your genitals. Apparently this is the cleaned up and edited version that was arduously perfected in the clubs in Brum and other squalid cities around Britain. It may seem a little dated now and the style somewhat archaic but fans of Frank will find it hard to deny that this is as good as it gets. He controls the audience masterfully and paces the gags to perfection. There is no pretence with Frank or gimmick to fall back on (note messers Izzard, Hill, Evans etc...) and thats what has made him the most consistent and reliable stand-up of the nineties. He is the toilet version of Monkhouse and an educated Manning. Brilliant and sort of original. The act closes with the worst gag ever, but nevermind there is enough to keep you chuckling beforehand.
Thanks to WelshWitch for the description above from the VHSRip version.
