Football season is only two weeks away, which means you're either super excited for, or desperately dreading, Frank Caliendo's impressions. His Madden (above video) is of course the most famous, but the former MadTV personality certainly has plenty more.
If you'd like a closer look at the Tempe native's career will be at Dodge Theatre on Saturday, October 10, his last show before he becomes a permanent headliner on the Las Vegas Strip, fulfilling an exclusive 10-year agreement with the Monte Carlo.
Caliendo had his own show, Frank TV, a few years back, which you may remember for the ubiquitous promos that ran for months before its debut on TBS. He also did a memorable stint on FOX NFL Sunday with Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long, doing impressions of Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, former Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, Dr. Phil, Jay Leno and dozens more.
