Franklin is known for his many television appearances including 'Ronnie Johns Half Hour Sketch Comedy Show', 'Spicks and Specks' and 'Thank God You're Here'. His main stage persona is Chopper as he is best known for his impersonation of the Australian criminal Mark Brandon "Chopper" Read.
Chopper (Franklin) returns to Adelaide in 2015, but as a jailbird. He followed his heart and it got him arrested. Restraint has never been Chopper's strong point, but with a great moustache comes great responsibility.
