About Frank Thomas: “Long haired, beardy and slightly dishevelled” Frank Thomas is a spoken word artist and performer based in South Wales who doesn’t look like he should be able to “hold the audience hostage with his charismatic ramblings”. He also makes snake anti-venom to pay the bills (in a pharmaceutical lab, not his kitchen).
