A Message From Frank
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.
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."
All sales are final. There are no refunds or exchanges.
- Patrons must be 18 or older to attend events or classes at the DC Improv. Any exceptions are clearly noted in the event descriptions on dcimprov.com.
- There is a two-item minimum per ticket. This can be any combination of food items or beverages. Bottled water and soft drinks count as items.
- For our main showroom, the first show of any night is the "early" show. All other shows are "late" shows. Early shows are seated by time of arrival. The earlier you arrive at the club, the greater your seating options will be. Late shows have assigned seating, and assignments are made in order of ticket purchase. The earlier you buy tickets, the better your seats will be (i.e. closer to the stage).
- For our lounge, all shows regardless of start time are seated by time of arrival.
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.
