Frank Hvam Nielsen, known professionally as Frank Hvam (born 12 September 1970) is a Danish stand-up-comedian.
Hvam was born in Viborg and grew up on a farm in Ørum Sønderlyng. His legal name is Nielsen, but he uses only his middle name professionally. After studying veterinary medicine for 3 and a half years, he dropped out to try his luck as a comedian.
He is known for his performance as the "geek" Kenny Nickelman in the Danish sitcom Langt fra Las Vegas and as a writer and performer in the Pythonesque comedy Casper og Mandrilaftalen.
His collaboration with Casper Christensen on Casper og Mandrilaftalen was the beginning of a writing partnership that has yielded a number of comedy productions, including a Danish version of the British Shooting Stars and six seasons of Klovn.
