SPOKEN WORD: Comedy
Frank Caliendo is a stand up comedian and actor who grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Back in high school Frank began goofing around with impersonating people. He became very good at it, and by the time he graduated college, he had a fairly large impersonation repertoire.
After college, Frank began performing stand up comedy. He started out as an M.C. at local clubs and within a very short period of time began headlining. Most comics don''t headline until after having spent 5-10 years of performing stand up comedy. Frank was headlining within his second year! This was largely due to Frank''s ability to impersonate many celebrities, from Robin Williams, Bill Cosby, Robert Diniro, Chris Farley, to John Madden. Not only were Frank''s impressions dead on, both aesthetically and verbally, but also the situations that he created for these characters, are truly hilarious. From the "Special episode of Seinfeld" where Jerry accidentally does drugs, to Robin Williams performing the entire "Wizard of Oz" by himself, audiences are continually doubled over in laughter during Frank''s performances.
It wasn''t long before word got out about Frank, and he was asked to perform his amazingly clean comedy on the college comedy circuit. For two years Frank performed for hundreds of colleges across the nation, all the time honing his act and his impersonations, and entertaining thousands of college kids with his barrage of comical situations.
Not too long after the college tours began, Frank got a call from a major Hollywood agent who signed him onto his talent roster. Within the first year of that contract, Frank received a development deal to work on a show called "Hype" for the Warner Brothers network. Frank was not a writer but was booked as comedic acting talent. The show was not necessarily a major hit, most likely due to poor writing (as we will state with much bias, as Frank was did not have much control of that part of the process). However, Frank was able to show off some of his abilities on national television.
After the demise of "Hype," Frank was contacted by FOX network executives to become a cast member of the hit Saturday night television show, "MADtv." Frank just finished his third season as an ensemble cast member. Frank''s fan base as a cast member is growing steadily.
Within the last couple years, Frank has also appeared multiple times on FOX''s NFL pregame show and "The Best Damn Sports Show Period."
Frank is now has his own "Frank''s Picks" every Sunday on FOX during the NFL pregame.
