Frank's duties for the show also included picking a vast majority of the movies featured on the show. Frank also reportedly found many of Coleman Francis' movies hysterical and so they were all featured on the show.

Personal quotes

  • "I’m from New York City. I’d moved to Minneapolis in 1985 to go into drug rehab. I ended up staying and doing stand-up comedy. Basically, I was a very unknown stand-up comedian when I got on Mystery Science Theater."
  • "I’ve never gotten any residuals or royalties from the show, or any money from merchandising. But that has never been a bone of contention with me, because Mystery Science Theater was my first TV show. I’ve always been totally cool with that."
