Frank DeCaro

Frank DeCaro (born November 6, 1962) is an American writer and performer. The New York-born DeCaro is one of the first openly gay humor columnists writing for a major American daily newspaper, "Newsday", and the author of "A Boy Named Phyllis: A Suburban Memoir" (Viking 1996). He came into the public eye as a featured recurring player on "The Daily Show", doing movie reviews with an over-the-top gay sensibility from 1996 to 2004. During those years, he co-wrote and hosted five Oscar preview specials for Comedy Central. He also served as a panelist on a short lived version of the classic TV game show, "I've Got a Secret", on GSN.

DeCaro grew up in Little Falls, New Jersey, and graduated in 1980 from Passaic Valley Regional High School in Little Falls. [Sharkey, Joe. [ "Their Son, the Writer, Finally Tells All"] , "The New York Times", June 2, 1996. Accessed April 10, 2008. "At Passaic Valley High School, he was undoubtedly the only boy nicknamed Phyllis, and probably the only one with his own Cuisinart."]

A journalist whose DVD reviews appear frequently in the "New York Times" Arts & Leisure section, DeCaro for several years wrote the funny-but-chic "Style Over Substance" column for that paper. His writing has appeared in myriad publications including "The New York Times Magazine", "Entertainment Weekly", "Newsweek", "Vogue" and "Martha Stewart Living". In addition, he is the author of the coffee table biography "Unmistakably Mackie: The Fashion and Fantasy of Bob Mackie" (Universe, 1999).

As of 2006 he hosts a live daily radio show with producer/co-host Doria Biddle for SIRIUS OutQ. His many TV appearances include NBC's "Dateline", CNN's "Showbiz Tonight" and various programs for the Logo network.
