Frank Story

Presenter

For three years Jon Ronson was the keyboard player with the Frank Sidebottom Band. Frank wore a big fake head. Nobody outside his inner circle knew his true identity. They toured the United Kingdom, playing to sell-out crowds in small venues. They rode high. And then it all went wrong... Now Jon presents a one-man show ''Frank Story'' telling the true story behind the new acclaimed fictionalized movie co written by him and starring Michael Fassbender and Maggie Gyllenhaal. This is a tribute to outsider artists too wonderfully strange to ever make it in the mainstream.
