Have loved this show for years, always love Frank but I’m just about done with Emily pretending very mundane things “make her feel siiiiick” all the time, turning her nose up at anything she sees as remotely “working class” because she’s trying so hard to convince everybody she’s really posh,...Read full review »

Awful human being

I don’t know what I would have done without this show over the last few years - it’s kept me sane. Really? I hear you ask. Yes. The dynamic of the 3 presenters is spot on, they are hilarious, dismissive, interruptive, informative, loud, bolshy and wonderful to listen to. I have played every...Read full review »

I have to keep coming back to repeat that Emily is sharp, intelligent and funny - does nobody listen to her Walking the Dog podcast? I think there is more than a hint of misogyny in those anti-Emily reviews and i really like the relationship between the 3 presenters. Alun is dry and funny and...Read full review »

For ages I thought she was a character - people like that don’t really exist, do they!!?? Come on. She can’t be real…interruptions with that shrill fake cackle. Name dropping, posh, git woman. I hate her. I love Frank and Alun SO MUCH though…terrible situation.

I’ve only just been introduced to this. Please tell me Emily doesn’t feature on every Pod. Unbearable listening to her being as funny as shingles

Frank & Alun are great but I do wish Emily would pipe down. She is loud, unfunny & annoying. That fake laugh really grates. She seems to find everything hilarious & it spoils the show. Would be so much better without her.
MGH1967 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/13/22
Is Emily crushing on Pierre? I felt a bit uncomfortable listening to her gushing over him constantly. Jeez 😒 She also over uses the jingles which takes away the special factor. I really missed Frank in the last 2 episodes, there was quite an obvious dip in the quality. It might be a great idea...Read full review »

Come on absolute….you know what you need to do…..
Franktovey via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/07/22
Without Frank the show is no more, the annoying unfunny Emily Dean is just gushing all over Pierre like a dog on heat, let Alun speak.
Radfordred via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 03/02/22
It’s just not the Frank Skinner show if Frank isn’t hosting.
Infuriated bird via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/26/22
I’ve listened since the start. Never missed an episode. Repeated the episodes across years of insomnia. It has never failed to make me smile in some way. Frank is a fantastic, amusing conversationalist. These last two episodes, conducted in his absence, have highlighted what a stellar job Frank...Read full review »

Such a comfort, to listen to this show. It’s like sitting down with old friends and having a laugh. Got to love Frank’s tales and jokes, and the warm tones of Emily relating her memories, it makes the show sublimely cosy. Al is okay too ;)
JohnDunder via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 02/17/22
I do enjoy the podcast but more and more Emily lovely as she is has really taken over way too much and I would love to hear more from Alun I think he’s got so much more to give but isn’t given the chance because of her. Lots of the other reviews our same same, please take note. Interview with Tim...Read full review »

Sad
Sadly I can’t listen anymore, it seems to be the Emily show now. Not one episode goes by without her interrupting Alun and constantly mentioning her many celebrity friends! Love Frank but enoughs enough.

I love frank by why does he sniff all the time???
Chancod via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 01/30/22
Frank is superb. Alan seems rather dull and it’s difficult to believe he’s a comedian, but he’s a nice chap, overshadowed anyway by Emily babbling all the time. She is genuinely funny and witty but forgets this is not her show.
LotusBlueTwo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/30/22
I've been an avid listener/reader for many years but have finally had to unsubsribe as no matter how hard I tried to accept her, Emily is the achilles heel of this otherwise entertaining and amusing show and I can only agree with other listeners comments regarding her even Gareth Richards is...Read full review »

Git
Frank is a huge git(praise redacted). Alun and Emma are brilliant.
hihnrhnz via Apple Podcasts · New Zealand · 01/27/22
Great to listen to and then also great to have on in the background
pcdvibe via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/24/22
Frank is a pleasure to listen and is mentally so sharp, Emily on the other hand makes this podcast very difficult to listen to, at least though she’s stopped mentioning Jonathan Ross at every opportunity but she’s replaced it now with an awful fake laugh.

Skinner has always been one of my favourite comedians but not even he can save this show from his cohosts. Whenever Skinner isn’t talking, it’s unbearable.
lukerhoden_ via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/09/22
I have had many belly laughs over the years but I just struggle with Emily’s sycophantic laughter and ‘I want to keep my job’ Frank-worship. Sometimes Frank isn’t funny or something hasn’t worked but the loyal hound Emily howls with forced laughter that makes me cringe. Why does she have to talk...Read full review »
EMP2811 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 01/07/22
and that is why this podcast is in a league of it’s own.
Johnnie Hamp via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 12/19/21
I really enjoy the podcast and Frank never fails to make me laugh with his observations and clever use of language. Unlike a lot of people, I really don’t have a problem with Emily. If you can get passed the constant Jonathon Ross references (yawn), she’s actually quite switched on and quick...Read full review »
TeamRagtime via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/16/21
Loved the journey and listened to every podcast. Frank’s rather bland life, Emily’s over laughing and Alun’s slow failed comic breakdown means it time to say farewell.
jocky622 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 12/15/21
Great apart from the whiney, drawn out, totally put on upper class accent of Emily butting in all the time and her obviously fake ‘Muttley’ sniggering in the background. Ruins what would otherwise be a great podcast. Let her go, she adds nothing.
FJR1300AS! via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 11/22/21
You have saved my sanity through the worst time of my family’s life!! you have laughed me to sleep x you will never know how you three have helped me xx just keep doing what you do !!! Your amazing xxx

Frank is a genius. Love Emily and the Cockerel too.

So I think Emily might know Jonathan Ross personally.... she's not one to name drop tho...Read full review »

Ignore the gainsayers, Team Frank. Regular reader and love it for how it is - I find Frank, Ms Em and the Cockrell a nifty little grouping. The only thing Frank and I would fall out over would be - Curb Your Enthusiasm. Further praise redacted. It’s become a lovely part of my week - like a seat...Read full review »

My weekend is Frank Skinner and Jason Manford enjoy all the side kicks to!!
michaelbarnesk via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/17/21
Love Frank and Emily, but Alun the cockerel is so unfunny and brings the show down.
Borolad 55 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/12/21
Emily is great but not as host! I love this podcast and have for years but when Frank is absent please let Alun take control or get someone else in. I say this in the kindest possible way x
Incredible Magpie via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 08/01/21
Don’t ever have that unfunny cretin on again!
Grayzzaa via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/29/21
The other two are really funny but have to skip bits where Alun is talking as he is so unfunny it makes me cringe. So obvious the others don’t find him funny and are just waiting for his long pointless stories to end. He also doesn’t get when people are making a joke at his expense and takes...Read full review »

I think the comments about Emily are a bit unfair, I enjoy the mix of all three
Steve C 1974 via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/24/21
I have just been reliving Frank’s greatest hits online looking for the “swings and roundabouts joke” couldn’t find it! Was it Frank? Or have I misremembered? Anyway, genius. My unsuccessful trawl reminded me of what a comedy genius Frank has been (I will leave the timeframe unqualified). Love...Read full review »

If only Emily Dean would just shut up for a few minutes and let someone much funnier talk for a while
The Ryan.J via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 07/10/21
not as funny as it used to be. Has become a self-congratulating festival between the presenters, and a home for the same old jokes and puns ".... a road to Domestos experience" ...three times we've heard this ...AT LEAST, and it wasn't that funy the first timeRead full review »
Angusmecoatup via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 06/27/21
Listen to the podcast every week while walking the dog, Frank is just so funny and Emily and Alan are great support. Being a Brummie in exile it’s great to hear the maestro in action !
Mysteriousbananaman via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/17/21
I’ve been following this podcast for about 6 years I think. I love it and feel like I’m friends with the gang!! My only complaint is it should be on more often!! Daily if possible!
emmyemmo via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 06/01/21
This show is ruined by Emily Dean and her constant need to be heard/interrupt the other hosts. She’s an attention seeking fame [email protected] She’s an awful person.
guyfjvf via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/26/21
Long time reader. I enjoyed the poetry podcast despite not being a fan of poetry I do like however interpretations of song lyrics and books so I found much to enjoy. My only request would be for the poetry to be also read out in full at the end or beginning so I can enjoy them rather than the...Read full review »
Davesy via Apple Podcasts · Great Britain · 05/23/21
Frank, Alun & whichever stand in for E. Dean are always extremely entertaining - as that is their job & raisin d’etre. However I personally can’t listen to E. Dean - I don’t understand why she is there. Just me maybe because it’s a very popular show. She is the epitome of the bus driver’s...Read full review »
