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.
