Ze Frank is an American online performance artist, composer, humorist and public speaker.

In 2001 Ze created an online birthday invitation and sent it to seventeen of his closest friends. Forwarded wildly, the invitation soon generated millions of hits and over 100 gigabytes of daily web traffic to his site zefrank.com. The site grew to include interactive group projects, short films, animations, and video games, including children's educational videos featuring handy tips such as "Don't vacuum your face".

He's the recipient of the 2002 Webby Award for Best Personal Website and in 2005, was featured in Time Magazine's "50 Coolest Websites".

Ze has served as an adjunct professor at ITP/NYU, Parsons School of Design and SUNY Purchase. He is based in Brooklyn, New York.
