Tim Thomerson rates highly as one of the best, most prolific, versatile and dependable character actors to ever grace both the big and small screens alike with pleasing regularity since the mid 70s. Although often cast as laconic rough 'n' tumble macho guys, Thomerson has proved on many occasions that he can essay comic roles and more substantial dramatic parts with equal skill and conviction. He was born on April 8th, 1946 in Coronado, California and was raised in Hawaii and San Diego. He did a stint in the National Guard prior to getting a job as a prop man and set builder at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. Character actor Anthony Zerbe advised Thomerson to get lessons from legendary acting teacher Stella Adler in New York; and he duly studied with Adler for four years.

He began his show business career as a stand-up comedian; he performed at the clubs The Bitter End, Bud Friedman's Improvisation and Catch A Rising Star in New York and at the Comedy Store and the Improv in Los Angeles. He eventually even had a guest spot on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson. His film debut was with a funny small role in the hilarious "Car Wash." He achieved his greatest enduring cult popularity with his delightfully deadpan portrayal of rugged police detective Jack Deth in the terrific "Trancers" and its strictly so-so sequels. Other memorable parts include eccentric police detective Jerry Moriarty in the fine "Fade to Black," weary factory worker Ray in "Take This Job and Shove It," a highway patrolman in Clint Eastwood's poignant and underrated "Honkytonk Man," burnt-out Vietnam vet helicopter pilot Charts in the exciting "Uncommon Valor," grimy mercenary Rhodes in the cheesy "Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn," the crazed John Reynolds in "Volunteers," demented cult leader Lester in "Cherry 2000," the tough-as-nails the Sarge in the enjoyably quirky "Zone Troopers;" lovely and touching as the gentle Loy in the outstanding "Near Dark," diminutive, but fearless alien lawman Brick Bardo in the funky "Dollman," and a scruffy motorcyclist in Terry Gilliam's unjustly maligned "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Tim has appeared in a large number of films for low-budget independent director Albert Pyon and acted alongside real-life best buddy Brion James in numerous pictures (the two first met while both serving in the National Guard Reserves). On television Thomerson played the half-man, half-woman Gene-Jean on the uproarious, but sadly short-lived sci-fi parody program "Quark." Thomerson also had recurring roles on the TV shows "Sirens" and "Land's End" and has made guest appearances on countless TV shows.

  • Frank Caliendo
    August 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM Frank Caliendo
    7PM SHOW SOLD OUT!  Tickets still available for 9PM

    Hey Everyone,
     
    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.
     
    -Frank
     
    PS. I won't actually be doing any magic tricks with the audience.
     
    PPS. If I do start doing magic, then you can easily say, "Oh he's DEFINITELY having a midlife crisis."

    Comedian, actor, and impressionist Frank Caliendo has been making people laugh his
    entire life. He 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. 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 have appeared on “Sports Center” and
    his “Gruden QB Camp” segments and Super Bowl “Richard Sherman 30 for 30”
    mocumentary have gone viral across the web.
    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. He has comedy specials that run regularly on TBS and Comedy Central and
    he is a regular 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.
    Though Frank can be highly known for his variety of sports-related impressions, he
    makes his live shows appealing for everyone in the audience by continually including a
    little bit of every major genre - sports, political figures, and celebrities.

  • Cindy Kaza - Medium
    August 19, 2018 at 7:30 PM Cindy Kaza - Medium
    Cindy Kaza is an evidential medium.  Evidential mediumship is a style of mediumship practiced around the world that puts heavy weight on the medium’s ability to bring through extremely specific evidence to the sitter. This evidence can include, but is certainly not limited to, names, personality traits, physical ailments, favorite past times, and phrases often used by loved ones in spirit. The purpose of this style of mediumship is to diminish skepticism among sitters and to prove that the medium is truly connecting with the client’s loved ones in spirit.
     
    Cindy has been extremely intuitive since very early childhood.  At the age of 10 she had her first memorable experience with a spirit. Days after losing a childhood friend in a fatal car accident, Cindy woke up in the middle of the night to see her friend standing next to her bed. At the time, she dismissed this experience and convinced herself it was just a dream.  It wasn’t until her early 20’s that she realized she was having psychic and mediumistic experiences all along. During this “awakening” she began searching for answers and reasons for her experiences and became aware of her multi-faceted abilities as a psychic medium.  She began training not only in the United States but also at the Arthur Findlay School of Intuitive Sciences in Stansted, England. She believes in compassionately sharing her gift with others while also opening up others to the gifts they too possess and that everyone is inherently intuitive and able to feel Spirit!
