    Anyone outside of the UK might not know who Frank was. He was an old school Irish stand up comedian and they don't make em like him anymore! I just read he got his inspiration after meeting Laurel and Hardy in a barbers shop in Belfast... now there's 2 people who can really be called greats....

    R.I.P Frank, thanks for the laughs.

    Yes, he was a top man. One of those comedians where you could just laugh looking at him.

    That's a shame! He was the Irish master of the crap joke (and some good ones), but always did it with a smile that would make you burst out laughing!

    "It's they way you tell em"

    RIP Frankie!
