TV show description:
A veteran of FOX’s MADtv and FOX Sports, master impressionist Frank Caliendo transforms himself into a wide variety of celebrities, politicians, and personalities.
Though sometimes joined by players Mike MacRae, and Freddy Lockhart, Caliendo often performs as a one-man ensemble, playing multiple roles in a single scene.
Everything from current events to icons of the past is fair game for this comic chameleon. One thing’s for sure, no matter who he is, you’re guaranteed to laugh.
The series is shot in front of a live audience, but also includes segments filmed on location.
