Frankie Jakeman


Frankie Jakeman is a brilliant comedian. He has over 25 years’ experience in comedy. He has performed all over the country, America, Spain and the Middle East in every kind of venue you can imagine ranging from golf clubs, masonic halls, corporate events and comedy clubs.

 

His style is highly original, very direct and extremely funny. Frankie’s material is very tight and he is a master of words.

And Frankie is not only an accomplished comedian. He recently celebrated his 25th anniversary in the business.

A career launched at the beginning of the 80’s has seen Jake supporting Freddie Starr, Chas’n’Dave, Shane Richie, and many more. Collecting amusing anecdotes along the way, his first book Being Frank was published by Headline in 1987 and was such a success that a sequel Frank Talk was published the following year. Guest appearances on TV in Birds of a Feather, Alas Smith & Jones and Filthy Rich & Catflap have led to more serious roles in a number of TV dramas, including Minder, EastEnders, and more recently, The Bill. His hilarious portrayal of Del in a new sitcom The Tip will hopefully be seen on BBC3 in the New Year.
