Anyone here see comedian/impressionist Frank Caliendo?

Holy crap!

There was this kind lame USO-Lite comedy show on where comics come out and try and be funny. Some were. The highlight was this guy Caliendo who is really known for his dead-on funny as hell riff on John Madden.

Guys, if you get a chance to see him on TV or in person you will wet your pants.

He's been on Fox's pre-game show for years. His Madden impersonation is hilarious, if you go to his website it has all his impersonations, which he is famous for. His stand-up is only so-so.

He does a pretty good Dubya too. It's just too bad he's short and fat, lol.

But he's probably most known for his Madden and being on the FOX Pregame show. He's usually pretty good with his picks too, and tends to pick better than Bradshaw. Always does his picks in an impersonation too.

Caliendo's impressions are hilarious. I think that's really all he does well though. I've heard a couple of his stand up routines and, other than the impressions, he wasn't that funny.

Yeah I saw him and he was funny. He was VERY down to earth too. Met us and took picks and talked for awhile even though he didn't have to. Real cool dude.

Yeah, that's where I saw him first. Mad TV has passed SNL imo....
