If you frequent the Tulsa night-life scene, it's likely you've seen his colorful jersey, skin-tight spandex shorts and curly semi-mullet hairdo. In fact, you may have seen a little more than you wanted to.
He is the Biker Fox. And he does not shy away from the spotlight. He rides around the popular bar districts from downtown to Brookside and beyond, popping in to various bars or clubs for a few minutes to dance, take photos with patrons, and generally bring good cheer to all.
Now, Biker Fox is bringing that good cheer to the rest of the world with a new documentary simply titled "Biker Fox," directed by local filmmaker Jeremy Lamberton.
The film premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival with a mostly favorable reception. Audiences didn't quite know what to make of our local eccentric, but most agreed he was at least interesting to watch.
A review in the Hollywood trade magazine Variety sums up the film: "Human oddities, an entertainment staple since Barnum, are usually limited to 'American Idol' these days, but Frank P. DeLarzelere III – a.k.a. Biker Fox – is a genuinely singular personality: a health-advocating personification of unresolved anger, public advocate of personal privacy, antagonist of civil authority and muscle-car parts supplier to the southwestern United States. As the subject of Jeremy Lamberton's protracted but generally engaging 'Biker Fox,' he's unforgettable."
Now, the movie is set to make its debut in Biker Fox's own backyard.
The documentary will make its Tulsa premiere July 17 at 7:30 p.m. at AMC Southroads 20. Tickets are free to the public and will be available at 6 p.m. the day of the screening. Check out the movie's Facebook page for more information.
Ida Red on Brookside will host an after-party following the screening.
