Franklin made his television debut on sketch show The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, where his character, 'Chopper’, a comedic impersonation of real-life criminal Mark 'Chopper' Read, has become an international cult hit.

In 2007, Franklin performed his debut Australian national live tour, Chopper's Harden the F*ck Up Australia Tour, going on to perform an international version of the show in a sell-out season in London, then Edinburgh Fringe.
