Award-winning comedian Frank Skinner will return to the West End next year with a new show, Frank Skinner and Friends, running at the Noël Coward Theatre from 23 January to 4 February 2012.

The show, in similar fashion to Frank Skinner's Credit Crunch Cabaret in 2009, will feature four different acts each night, from “top comedy to swing bands, beatboxing, opera, juggling, and even a little bit of magic”, all compered by Skinner.

Acts confirmed so far include Al Murray, Richard Herring, Brendon Burns, Carl Donnelly, Isy Suttie, Nick Helm, Andy Zaltzman, Phil Nichol, Beardyman, The Magnets and rapper Doc Brown.

The show fills the gap at the Noël Coward between the closure of Million Dollar Quartet on 14 January and the opening of Hay Fever, starring Lindsay Duncan, on 23 February (previews from 10 February).
