Jimmy Kimmel’s “Uncle Frank” Dead At 77 [VIDEO]

I think Jimmy Kimmel Live! is one of the most underrated shows on late night tv.  I think he’s one of the best and funniest on late night and his show was rocked Tuesday with the announcement of the death of his Uncle Frank.  His real name was Frank Potenza and was formerly a police officer for New York City and Kimmel’s uncle in real life.  “Uncle Frank” became a security guard on the late night show and was pretty darn funny in the skits that Kimmel had him in.

The cause of his death is unknown at this time and the show is on leave until the beginning of September.

Jimmy Kimmel replied to the many followers sending out their sympathies on his Twitter account,

thank you for your kind words about a very kind man – my Uncle Frank – who passed away this morning.”

If you never saw Uncle Frank on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, I’ve found a few clips that feature him in some skits.  Hope you enjoy them and remember Uncle Frank.
