Experience of Frank Spadone
Frank started working for some of the top photographers in the country after finishing college. One thing became very clear – Frank had a knack for being the on-set comedian, entertaining the crew on these shoots. Whether it was telling stories about his family, imitating the models, or making fun of himself, Frank always had everyone laughing.
Photographers began to hire Frank for not only his photography ability but also his entertaining humour, sometimes at the request of the clients. It was on one of these shoots that one of the models started telling Frank that he should take his comedy to the clubs. Frank began contemplating it. After visiting a few local comedy clubs he decided to give it a try.
On March 18, 1997, Frank stepped on stage for the first time as a stand-up comic. He didn’t tell many people about it and there were just a few select friends in the audience.
He was on stage for only five minutes, but those five minutes told everyone in the room that this guy truly had that “something special” it takes to be a successful comedian. He continued working amateur and open mic nights in Toronto, constantly building his material and starting to create a buzz.
In less than a year he would perform in his first professional spot.
Soon enough, he was headlining at the top comedy clubs in Toronto and then taking his act to several cities across Canada. He continued honing his craft, graduating from improv classes at Second City (Frank still takes many advanced improv and acting classes).
Performance style of Frank Spadone
Frank credits his natural ability to two people: his maternal grandmother, Mama Teresa – who was quite the jokester and extremely quick-witted – and his paternal grandfather, Papa Cheech, who was known for his story telling ability.
Frank is definitely one of most talented comedians that Canada has to offer. As many great artists have proven that “art imitates life”, Frank’s comedic style equally reflects that “comedy imitates life”.
Frank has a unique way of taking elements of his everyday life and creating comical stories. His remarkably perceptive observations of the world we live in gives Frank’s brand of comedy a universal appeal that leaves his audiences in stitches!!!!!
