Jimmy Kimmel delivered an extremely emotional tribute Tuesday to his uncle Frank Potenza, a regular fixture on his late night show who passed away recently. Uncle Frank was 77.

“Uncle Frank loved being a part of this show,” Kimmel said with tears streaming down his face. The host thanked his co-workers for taking care of and loving his uncle. “ And thanks to all of you who came to the show and watched for indulging me and letting me put my crazy uncle on television,” he said before clips of Uncle Frank’s time on the show played.
