Logie-nominated Australian actor and performer
Since his television debut as Chopper on the popular sketch show "The Ronnie Johns Half Hour", Heath Franklin continues to entertain Australian audiences with his performing talent and unique sense of humour.
Thanks to his nomination as Most Outstanding New Talent at the 2006 Logie Awards, Heath performed “Chopper’s Harden the F*ck Up Australia Tour” nationwide before taking the beloved character overseas to New Zealand and the UK. With over 130,000 tickets sold, Heath’s incredible success would inspire him to follow up with Chopper’s second national tour: the critically acclaimed “Make Deadsh*ts History”.
Turning his attention to the screen, Heath recorded his second tour for a DVD home release in 2009, which would go on to be nominated for the 2010 ARIA for Best Comedy Release. Not long after, Heath made his feature film debut alongside Jemaine Clement in the black comedy “Predicament”.
Heath also released the New Zealand TV series “Chopper's Republic of Anzakistan” in 2015. A hilarious sketch comedy, Chopper collaborates with other popular comedians to unite Australia and New Zealand.
By 2016, Heath’s career would reach new heights after performing to sold-out crowds across Australia and New Zealand.
