Heath Franklin is a 29 year old Logie-nominated Australian actor, comedic performer, improviser and writer.

Franklin made his television debut on the sketch show The Ronnie Johns Half Hour (2005-06), and was in fact the eponymous host, on his papier mache horse, The Good Taste Pony. Franklin is best known for his characters from Network 10's numerous appearances on 'The Ronnie Johns Half Hour', 'Spicks and Specks' and 'Thank God Youre Here'.
