About the Creators
Boaz Frankel (co-producer/host) Still in his early twenties, Boaz Frankel is quickly making a name for himself on the New York scene. In early 2002, Boaz began On the Cusp, a fresh and funny late night talk show on the New York University Television Network. With his sharp interviewing skills and quick wit, Boaz was called “a young David Letterman,” as he interviewed countless renowned guests including Michael Caine, Natalie Portman, Pierce Brosnan, Will Ferrell, and many more about various topics including “Living Next to Unruly Neighbors,” as well as “Being an Unruly Neighbor.” Well, how do you survive an unruly neighbor? Boaz had plently of advice, including a few quips by someone, who suggested that to defuse that bad vibes of approaching an annoying neighbor that it’s better to make it about you, not them. Well, you can imagine how that approach would work for most New Yorkers! “Be nice” is one of the suggestions when addressing a neighborly dispute. I think more often than not, complaints are lodged with the coop or condo board and lawyers are brought in is it needs to escalate. However, Boaz made the whole confrontation scenarios absolutely hilarious.
On the Cusp quickly became the most popular show in NYU-TV’s history. In the spring of 2004, Boaz was chosen from over 150 NBC interns to be one of eight contestants on the Today show’s special reality series, The Intern. Loosely based on The Apprentice, Boaz competed in various tasks, including producing his own piece that aired on Today. Boaz appeared on the show for over a week, was named one of the winners, and was awarded a special assignment with co-host Matt Lauer. In addition, Boaz has appeared numerous times on Last Call with Carson Daly, as well as the WB’s Studio 7, and the Style Network’s Brini Maxwell Show. Most recently, Boaz created and produced a pilot of 500 & Under, a quirky new documentary series that examines small town America.
