About

Born Henry Joseph Nasiff, Jr. and better known by his stage name of "Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf," this 4'1" comedian is perhaps best remembered for his numerous performances on The Howard Stern Show.

Before Fame

Before becoming a member of Howard Stern's Wack Pack, he performed a comedic role in a Boston-area dinner theater production of Finnegans Wake.

Trivia

As a child, he refused to let his congenital condition of achondroplasia dwarfism stop him from participating in Little League Baseball.

Family Life

He grew up in Fall River, Massachusetts, as the son of Claudette and Henry Nasiff. Tragically, he died at the age of thirty-nine from the combined effects of long-term alcohol abuse and neurological and skeletal disorders.

Associated With

As a result of Howard Stern's on-air promotion of write-in votes for People Magazine's 1998 "Most Beautiful Person Poll," Hank and wrestler Ric Flair attained the #1 and #2 positions in the poll.
