Back in the late 80's and 90's Frank was a regular on TV and I remember him being very popular with Students. He would pop up on late night TV and Alt Comedy shows of the day. I never knew who he was really, I never saw him without his fake head on. He, like a lot of acts back then eventually died out as his popularity faded. It was only when the film Frank was released that it brought the memory of him back.
Apparently he died broke and his funeral was paid for by fan's, that's such a sad thought.
