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.

OTHER GREAT SHOWS!

  • April Macie
    October 06, 2018 at 8:00 PM April Macie
    Do you remember the girl in your high school who had a horrible rumor spread about her? It might have involved a football team, or a dog and some peanut butter or maybe processed meat. Well, that girl in Easton, Pennsylvania was April Macie. So, where did she turn for comfort? While some might turn to the Lord, April turned to promiscuity. Promiscuity and then comedy. With her irreverent brand of overtly sexual humor she attempts to break down troubling double-standards and lend her voice to women everywhere. April would like to add that she doesn't really know what irreverent means, but she's heard a lot of other comics use it and thought it sounded kinda' cool.
     
    April Macie travels the world collecting stories and experiences, which she then translates into humorous, relatable tales in front of audiences worldwide. April has been to over 23 countries, 12 of those performing stand-up comedy (not fellatio) for the troops, was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2006, has appeared on E! Entertainment, Fuel TV, HSN, Sirius and XM Radio, Bob & Tom, Access Hollywood, and was labeled an "emerging talent to watch" by the Hollywood Reporter at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2005. April is a regular guest on the Howard Stern show, where in 2008 she was voted the “Funniest and Hottest” comedian in America. She is currently in the documentary, “I Am Comic” which premiered at the 2010 Slamdance Film Festival and is currently airing on Showtime and will also be appearing on Showtime in the stand-up special "Vegas Is My Oyster" premiering August 5th. Currently, she spends most of her time traveling the United States as a headlining stand-up comedian.
     
    April has slapped a boyfriend on the toilet for renting out their home for porn shoots, stood on the North Korean border, entertained troops next to the detainee camp in Guantanamo Bay, imported a young Englishman for the summer, only to see him turned away at the border months later for overstaying his visa. She has had numerous crappy jobs-including: a nanny, Hooter’s waitress, clowns assistant, telemarketer – fired from all of them, occasionally smokes weed out of an apple and goes to Chucky Cheese with her friends, thinks double standards are ridiculous and hopes to change the world by empowering women, “One dick joke at a time.”

  • HUNKS The Show - All Male Revue
    October 25, 2018 at 8:00 PM HUNKS The Show - All Male Revue
    When it comes to hot male strippers, most ladies only get to see some sexy men on stage taking their clothes off. But with HUNKS the Show, it’s more than just stripping. HUNKS is a much more personal and intimate experience that incorporates lights, music, professionally choreographed dancing routines, and fun fantasy costumes and the nature of the show encourages audience interaction. And while the best all-male exotic dancers show does feature male strippers, you’ll get so much more out of the experience than a simple striptease.
