THE FRANKLIN FRANKLIN SHOW – ZANY COMEDY ABOUT A TALK SHOW

His name is Franklin Franklin. He’s a retired boxer who never won any of his fights – all fifty two of them. He’s also the host of a new talk show. It is important to note that Franklin is quite stupid. And when the producer of old Franklin’s show realises this himself, interestingly enough at the beginning of this comedy about a talk show, it’s a steady downhill for the premiere of the show, Franklin (whether he acknowledges it or not) and the producer’s career. Keen to watch this already unsteady ship sink? Then join Franklin tonight as he interviews Debbie of Debbie’s Deadly Diet, inventor extraordinaire Edison (he looks like Einstein), a psychiatrist (Franklin calls her a nut job), an alien who prophesizes the earth’s impending doom and a King of some remote island that Franklin’s supposed to care about – as if! All in one act. Literally.

Here’s Franklin! Shuffling his way onto a set he’ll never see again!
