2006

"Consider the story of Hosea Frank, a 'little guy' who has become a big player online thanks to the internet (my prediction: it’s only a matter of time before he’s a household name in entertainment across the board)."
"The site is chock full of funny videos, games, interactive toys, and various readings."
"Have you seen the recipe for an earth sandwich?"
"I'm addicted to ze frank... Today, ze talks about a useless form letter he received from Delta after his flight was canceled and he asked for a refund. Pure vlogcast gold." (more boingboing.net articles...)
"If you haven't seen Ze Frank's hilarious videoblog, it's worth checking out."
"Ze Frank thought that farming out his script would provide some answers. Which explains why at 11 a.m. on June 9 he was sitting before a video camera with freshly dyed red hair, wearing a fake mustache, puffing a fake pipe and stroking a stuffed cat, sitting in an armchair next to a globe, a rubber duck, two pieces of white bread and a framed portrait of Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court justice — an absurd array of props mandated by the script."
"To inspire his audience, Ze composed a ballad, 'If the Earth were a sandwich...' It's hummable. Beautiful even. So for the last few weeks, all over the world people have been rushing about, emailing, texting and trekking in an effort to arrange a simultaneous sandwich moment. This past week, apparently, it happened."
"The unshaven, deep-voiced, and scatologically inclined raconteur free-associates on whatever random thoughts trespass his unhinged consciousness... you should check Ze Frank out. And soon."
"'Fantasizing aside?' says vlogger genius Ze Frank in a recent installment of his daily three-minute webcast The Show, answering a viewer's question as to what exactly motivates this frenetic exercise in freestyle news commentary, political snarl, and raggedly personal hilarity. 'A side of what? Bacon?'"

2005

"The link was passed around like a virus you wanted to catch; within days millions had logged on, and a Web star was born. Today, Ze's page hosts a huge collection of interactive toys and games, comedic writings and humorous video monologues."
"If only I had discovered Ze Frank years ago, I might have handled certain difficult dating situations better."

2004

"It's nothing more than a guy reading the Nigerian scam letter out loud--but as a piece of QuickTime performance art, it's weird and hilarious."
"During a performance at the Technology, Entertainment, and Design Conference in Monterey, California he interrupted his presentation. Feigning uncertainty about where his talk was headed, Frank announced that he would ask Google what he should say next. He typed in the query and like a ventriloquist's dummy, Google delivered up as its top result the first sentence of Frank's next presentation slide."
