Jimmy Kimmel Bids Tearful Farewell to Late Uncle Frank With Tribute Reel [VIDEO]

Uncle Frank
ABC

Jimmy Kimmel paid tribute to the late “Uncle Frank” Potenza with a collection of the recurring guest star’s (and Kimmel’s real-life uncle) best moments on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live.’

“Uncle Frank loved being a part of this show,” said Kimmel, his voice breaking. “And thanks to all of you … for indulging me and letting me put my crazy uncle on television.”

A hilarious tribute reel followed that included a clip of Uncle Frank flirting with Meryl Streep, having a cake fight, sliding half-naked down an inflatable slide, roasting a turkey with a flamethrower and positively butchering ‘My Way’ by Frank Sinatra.

Potenza died on August 23 at the of 77.
