Hello My Name is: Frank Caliendo Tour
Sondheim Center for the Performing Arts
In this tour around the country, Frank will be doing some of his most well-known impressions and comedy as well as additional new characters and material that he's working on. Get a mix of old and new and a Frank you probably have never seen before.
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. Appropriately described by the Hollywood Reporter as "a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey," Caliendo is one comedian that should not be missed.
After completing an impressive 10-year run on the "FOX NFL Sunday Pregame" show, Frank recently found a new home over at ESPN, where he joined the cast of the "Sunday NFL Countdown". Realizing that ESPN has a plethora of strong personalities, Frank has added to his already vast arsenal of impressions, a new set of highly entertaining sports persona, including analysts like Jon Gruden, Mel Kiper, Jr., Ron "Jaws" Jaworski, Coach Mike Ditka, Adam Schefter, and Chris "Boomer" Berman.
Beyond ESPN's NFL show, Frank's segments often appear on "Sports Center" and other prized ESPN shows. Frank's "Gruden QB Camp" segments, Super Bowl "Richard Sherman 30 for 30" mocumentary, and "#IfTrumpWere" parodies are among the plethora of his works that have gone viral across the web.
A veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on "Mad TV" and starring in his own series "Frank TV", Caliendo has been a fixture on television for over a decade. He has comedy specials with TBS and Comedy Central and routinely makes surprise and guest appearances on radio and TV shows. Starting with over 15 combined appearances between the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "The Late Show with David Letterman", Frank continues to be revered for his exuberant appearances on morning news and late night talk shows.
Though Frank can be highly known for his variety of sports-related impressions, he makes his live shows appealing for everyone in attendance by continually including a little bit of every major genre - sports, political figures, and celebrities.
Message from Frank
This spring and summer, I'm going to be doing a bunch of ONE NIGHT ONLY SHOWS (with a couple exceptions) in smaller venues. The idea behind these shows will be different than what I've been doing in theaters around the country for the past few years.
Before you ask....YES, of course I'll be doing a bunch of impressions, but I'm going to also work on being "me" a lot more around them.
Some of you are probably thinking. "Oh No! Frank's having a midlife crisis!" No. I think a midlife crisis is more about being unsure of yourself. This is not the issue. This is about getting outside of the box I've built around myself on stage and letting my fans get to know the real me.
My plan is for these shows to be the most fun I've ever had on stage and I know we will all end up having a blast.
So, see you out there! Let's make some magic.
P..S. I won't actually be doing any magic tricks with the audience.
P..P..S. If I do start doing magic, then you can easily say, "Oh he's DEFINITELY having a midlife crisis."
