Frank Potenza Two weeks after the passing of Jimmy Kimmel's Uncle Frank, security guard and frequent contributor to the comedian's late night show, 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' will air a special episode dedicated to Frank Potenza.

According to ABC, the tribute show will air Tue., Sept. 6, and will feature some of Frank's comedy pieces, "notable interviews with everyone from Tom Cruise to Kermit the Frog," and an appearance by comedian Don Rickles, who will reminisce about his old friend Frank.

Potenza died Aug. 23 at 77 years old. At the time, ABC released a statement saying Uncle Frank was "beloved by his co-workers and considered an uncle to all. His kindness and humor will be missed by everyone he touched."

Frank was a New York City cop for two decades before becoming a security guard in Las Vegas and Manhattan. He also served as a personal security guard to Frank Sinatra. Potenza moved to Los Angeles when his nephew hired him for a new gig as security guard/commentator on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!.'
