Frank Caliendo - Master Impressionist

Frank Caliendo Impressions - Comedy Central - Same Act

The first time I ever heard of Frank Caliendo was when he appeared on one of the late night talk shows (Letterman, Leno, maybe Conan O'Brien, I don't remember). During part of his routine he did a skit of the Seinfeld cast that was pretty funny but the impression that blew me away was his John Madden impersonation. It was an exact replica of his voice. I'm talking about is it live or is it Memorex? It was that good. I could listen to him do Madden for his whole act but he actually does many more.

Some of the other voices he does in this video are George Bush, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Al Pacino, Rick Moranis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robin Williams, Keannu Reeves, Robert Deniro, Shaggy and Scooby, Casey Kasem and Jay Leno.

Fast forward a couple of years later and Frank Caliendo is now a cast member of Mad TV and yes he brought his John Madden impression with him. Good Stuff!
