BioMolested frequently as a child. As a teenager, more of the same. Molestation continued throughout his twenties and early thirties. Just last week, as a matter of fact, he was molested no less than four times by the same molester who had molested him as a child. Molestation for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That's Will Franken. All of these zany real-life experiences find their way into Will's unique brand of comedy. Called by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as "The Nation's Premier Molested Comic" and hailed by the Village Voice as "Mr. Molestation", Will Franken reminds us all that sometimes the funniest things in life are the things that really happened! :)
