Frank Wilcox Napuakekaulike De Lima[1] (born July 8, 1949), a comedian from Hawaii, is considered by some media sources[by whom?] to be the most sought-after comic in the state. With a Portuguese, Hawaiian, Irish, Chinese, English, Spanish, and Scottish heritage, he is known for light-hearted "Portagee" (Hawaiian Pidgin English for "Portuguese") slurs in his routine. In Honolulu, he attended the Cathedral Elementary School, Damien Memorial High School,[2][3] and Saint Stephen Minor Seminary, later graduating with Bishop Clarence Silva of Honolulu at St. Patrick Archdiocesan Seminary in Menlo Park, California. He was subsequently ordained a deacon in the Roman Catholic Church, serving at Holy Trinity Church, Kuliouou, Honolulu.

As a service to the community, De Lima also administers the Frank De Lima Student Enrichment Program. Through the Enrichment Program, Frank travels around Hawaii to various schools to perform motivational speeches.
