Hard work, a positive attitude, seemingly boundless energy and a collaborative spirit have fueled Kevin Frank’s success throughout his life.
Kevin has been a professional actor for over 35 years. He has performed in over 60 television commercials and has had countless appearances on popular series television. Kevin hosted the nationally syndicated children’s game show, “Kidstreet” for five years (350 episodes) and he enjoyed success as the host of Animal Planets’ Pet Project, which received 4 Gemini nominations, including Best Host in a Lifestyle & Information Program. He can also be heard as many of the voices in the Thomas the Tank Engine 1st feature movie. In the spring of 2014 Kevin had the pleasure of narrating a Children’s Story with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra for 9 sold out performances at Roy Thomson Hall. He has held that position and is under contract to continue in 2021/22.
Kevin began his acting career studying improvisational comedy with the Second City in Toronto. He rose through the ranks, eventually performing on the main stage at the Old Firehall. A sought after improvisor, Kevin has performed in hundreds of shows with some of Canada’s best. His current collaboration with fellow improvisors Neil Crone and Pat McKenna, the “Yes Men”, is bringing their playful and energetic show to sold out audiences.
In addition to performing Kevin has been delivering improv training and facilitating workshops to individuals and organizations for over 35 years. During his twelve year tenure as Artistic Director of the Second City Training Centre in Toronto he guided the design and delivery of curriculum and contributed significantly to the growth and success of the business through challenges including a relocation to new facilities in 2016 and the development of online delivery of offerings in 2020 due to the Covid pandemic. He continues to be passionate about helping individuals and organizations learn and apply new skills and attitudes through his improv, communication and leadership workshop offerings and his speaking engagements.
Not surprisingly, Kevin is very active in his community providing hands on support to many local initiatives, performing at dozens of fundraisers and helping community groups improve their ability to work together more effectively.
When Kevin isn’t “working” he can often be found behind one of his drum kits keeping time for his bandmates in “Glendale One”, performing as a musical improvisor or just jamming.
Kevin, his partner, their two daughters and their dogs live in Toronto, Ontario.
