Description

Frank delivers more than just amazing juggling and comedy. He dances his way into your heart with his "Twisted Cabaret." "Frank Olivier, aka ""Funny Frank,"" developed his unique offbeat brand of humor in San Francisco, first on the streets entertaining tourists, and then in the Bay Area's comedy clubs. He was soon sharing the bill with Dana Carvey, Robin Williams, Whoopi Goldberg and others. While on vacation in New York, theater producers spotted his talents and quickly signed him. He performed his act for three years in the Broadway touring hit show Sugar Babies. Olivier's television appearances include The Tonight Show, Just for Laughs and Comic Strip Live. He also headlines at Las Vegas and comedy and theater festivals. He is also known for his grace in handling volunteers onstage, and has brought up such luminaries as Henry Kissinger, Bill Murray, Sandra Day O'Connor, Kid Rock, Clarence Thomas, George Shultz, and hundreds of CEOs. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
