This challenge paid off, Erik will next be seen as a recurring character on the new Comedy Central series, The Workaholics as “Montez Walker”. Erik first gained national exposure performing in the ALMA nominated Payaso Comedy Slam seen on SHOWTIME and COMEDY CENTRAL networks, Live at Gotham on COMEDY CENTRAL, Last Comic Driving on NBC, Comics Without Borders on SHOWTIME, nationally syndicated Comics Unleashed; and he can be seen featured in several national commercials, including the Emmy winning, Budlight Swear Jar.

Erik was featured at the 2008 NACA National Conference, the 2007 East Regional and 2006 NACA West Regional Showcases. He is currently headlining clubs and colleges throughout the United States and Canada. Mostly recently, Erik was seen on, Surviving the Holidays with Lewis Black on the HISTORY CHANNEL, he was featured in the Tribeca Film Festival Documentary, Just Like Us and will be touring the world promoting the movie.

    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!
