Ledger calls him the "Ralph Kramden of this Generation!" GoodTimes
Magazine proclaims "Like
Gleason, D'Amico creates an on-screen persona that's larger than life
senses of the word)", Frank describes himself as a working “Character
Actor/ Comedian” who is focused with some really big ideas!
D'Amico was born in Mt. Vernon NY! A true New Yorker to the core! He grew up in
a blue collar, middle class, multi-cultured neighborhood! Frank started his
career by entertaining his fellow workers on a picket line for the Teamsters (Local
456) in WESTCHESTER NY…
after honing his onstage skills
he quickly became a national
headliner and opening act for many major artists!
Stand-up performance on Comedy Central drew the attention of director Roger
Nygard who was casting his next movie. Frank passed the audition and landed
his first role as a supporting dramatic actor. After getting a taste of acting
and deciding to pursue it professionally, he join HB Acting Studios in NYC with
acting coach William Hickey and

Star" roles in film and
Recently finished an independent feature film "The Dukes" directed by Robert Davi... starring Robert Davi, Chazz Palminteri, Peter Bogdonivich and Frank D’Amico “The Dukes” had sold out International Film Festivals.

Frank has also completed a family adventure film "The Fly Boys" directed by: “Rocco Di Villiers” soon to be released. After seeing some footage Frank commented, “This film has it all, it's gonna blow people away!”
Frank can be seen in Vanessa Parise’s "KISS THE BRIDE" and Roger Nygard’s documentary ”TREKKIES” (which features his Stand-Up Comedy Act), as well as TV best sitcom's such as: "Big Kitty on The Parkers" , "NYPD BLUE” and “Martial Law” and in roles he recurred on "BECKER" , "Grounded for LIFE".
