“Jimmy Kimmel Live” to honor Uncle Frank Potenza

On the Sept. 6 episode of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the show will pay tribute to Uncle Frank Potenza, who passed away last week at the age of 77. Potenza was Kimmel’s real-life uncle, and served as security guard and an on-camera contributor for the show.

The tribute will celebrate many moments from Uncle Frank’s 9-year tenure with the show, highlighting his comedy pieces and notable interviews with everyone from Tom Cruise to Kermit the Frog. Comedian and friend Don Rickles will also be on hand to reminisce with Jimmy about Uncle Frank.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at midnight ET on ABC.
