Description

Known by those close to him as “Friendly Frank,” Frank Robnett loves comedy and people. Maybe it’s his midwestern mentality, or the fact that he was raised by a family who loves him. Whatever the case, Frank brings the love, and then he hits you with the funny.

Intelligent and wise beyond his years, Frank grew up in St. Louis, surreptitiously listening to Richard Pryor and Redd Foxx records when his folks weren’t around. It only became a problem when he recited all those great routines for the kids at school – let’s face it, most 4th graders hadn’t heard about … well, those types of things.

Frank’s talents are best on display when he’s onstage, praising the audience for their compassion, then sneaking up on ‘em with a large dose of reality, giving the crowd a glimpse into his mind, as ripples of laughter glide through the room long after he’s left the stage.

Having opened for Adam Carolla and performed with comedians like Jon Lovitz and Jeff Garcia, Frank appeals to a wide demographic. He is the kind of entertainer who immediately makes a connection across all social economic classes, and on a very personal level, Frank is a rare commodity ~ someone who believes that if you have a talent and an opinion with a willing audience, it’s your responsibility to do something positive, or at least be able to share a part of yourself. Frank personally feels a responsibility to make people think. He fuses it all together, the humor and the political awareness.

Frank – a finalist in “Orange County’s Funniest Person” Contest – is suddenly is a hot name on the lips of management, and he’s ready for the call. Frank is a cool customer, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be excited when he’s the one being called “one of the hottest, most sought-after comedians in the business.”
