In the series, he acted as Frankie. This Frankie was a delivery guy who does his things in a very funny way. After a while, he got fired from the program. Differences in creativity must have been the reason for him getting fired.

Sometime in September 1987, he started his first Stand up show that airs for about an hour live on HBO. Two years after that, he got an agreement with NBC which entails creating a sitcom.
