Frank Caliendo
2014 JCC Sports Dinner Guest Speaker
 

Comedian, actor and impressionist Frank Caliendo has been making people laugh his whole career. The man known for his dead-on impressions of famous actors Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Robert DeNiro; politicians George W. Bush and Bill Clinton; broadcasters John Madden and Charles Barkley; and talk show hosts Dr. Phil, Jay Leno, and David Letterman recently concluded his critically and commercially successful run in Las Vegas at the Monte Carlo Casino and Resort.

On stage, Caliendo’s high-energy act is a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that build to a frenetic pace. Appropriately described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey,” Caliendo is one comedian that should not be missed.

An eleven-year veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on MADtv and starring in his own seriesFrank 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 late night talk show circuit performing on such shows as The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Tonight Show, The View, Late Show with David Letterman, and a special correspondent for Superbowl XXXIX.

Caliendo co-starred in the Twentieth Century Fox feature film The Comebacks with Bradley Cooper, Will Arnett, and Dax Shepard and was previously seen every week on the Fox NFL Sunday pregame show, where he worked with Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and the rest of the team for 9 years –including his “Frank’s Picks” segments featured during Superbowl XXXIX, XLII and XLV broadcasts.
