Executive Director, Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts
What do you get when you cross Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, President George W. Bush, and John Madden? You get the hilarious and nationally renowned impressionist and comedian Frank Caliendo performing at Wagon Wheel Center for the Arts for two shows at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on May 9, 2015. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 17.
Frank is well known for his impressions of famous actors Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Robert DeNiro; politicians George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama; broadcasters John Madden, Charles Barkley and Jon Gruden; and talk show hosts Dr. Phil, Jay Leno, and David Letterman.
On stage, Caliendo’s high energy act is a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that start at a frenetic pace and never let up.
Though Frank is best known for his variety of sports-related impressions, his live shows are appealing for everyone in the audience, including families, by continually including a little bit of every major genre – sports, political figures, and celebrities. Appropriately described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey,” Caliendo is one comedian that should not be missed.
An eleven year veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on Madtv and starring in his own series Frank TV, Caliendo has been a fixture on television for the last decade, including contributions to ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown”. He has comedy specials that run regularly on TBS and Comedy Central and he is a staple on the talk show circuit performing on such shows as The View, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, The Tonight Show, and Late Show with David Letterman.
Don’t miss Frank Caliendo’s sold out tour.
