Franklyn Ajaye - Rotten Tomatoes

Franklyn Ajaye



African American stand-up comic Franklin Ajaye has always seemed to be just on the verge of Bigger Things. The eternally "promising" Ajaye has been a popular TV talk-show guest, as well as the host of the syndicated variety series National Lampoon's Hot Flashes. He was also a regular (together with fellow "newcomers" Didi Conn, Charles Fleischer, Wayland Flowers and Jack Riley) on the 1975 summer-replacement laughfest Keep on Trucking. In theatrical films, Franklin Ajaye has enlivened such noisy farces as Car Wash (1977) and The 'Burbs (1990).
