Frisco’s family moved to Dubuque, Iowa when he was a boy and while there, his dancing earned him local fame. In 1906 he moved to Chicago to pursue a dancing career, and made his name on stage at age 15, and soon added his stuttering voice to his act and became a popular comedian. At one time during his acting career he was earning upwards of $50,000 per year. Just weeks before his death, Frisco had appeared on radio and was honored at the Hollywood Masquers Club.
