Ze Frank to host the Vimeo Awards!

We are very excited to have Ze Frank host the first-ever Vimeo Awards on October 9th. 

Ever since his “How to Dance Properly” viral video — born as a party invitation for 17 friends — hit the Web in 2001, Ze Frank has been pushing the boundaries of online entertainment. His web site, zefrank.com, is a mess of addictive videos, toys, essays and games, and has been a testing ground for a dizzying array of viral hits (and some spectacular failures.) In 2006 Ze launched a year-long daily video blog called “The Show.” which Slate.com referred to as “ the best sustained comedy run in the history of the Web.” His rapid-fire delivery and absurd explorations in audience participation (e.g. Earth Sandwich) has influenced a generation of digital native video creators.
