Comic and Impressionist Frank Caliendo Brings the Laughs to Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady in September

 

Schenectady, NY (March 3, 2022) – Comedy’s top impressionist Frank Caliendo will bring his hilarious observations, impressions, and characters to the Rivers Casino & Resort Schenectady Event Center on Saturday, September 24, 2022. Described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey,” Caliendo is known for his high energy and family-friendly act that starts at a frenetic pace and never lets up.

 

Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Friday, March 4) at 10 a.m. Tickets start at $40, plus taxes and fees, and will be available at RiversCasino.com/Schenectady. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show start at 8 p.m.

 

Frank Caliendo has been making people laugh his entire life. He’s known for his uncanny impressions of famous personalities Donald Trump, Morgan Freeman, Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Robert DeNiro; politicians George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama; broadcasters John Madden, Charles Barkley, and Jon Gruden; talk show hosts Dr. Phil, Jay Leno, and David Letterman; and many more.

 

After completing an impressive 10-year run on the “FOX NFL Sunday Pregame” show, Caliendo 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 added a new set to his already vast arsenal of impressions of highly entertaining sports persona, including analysts like Ron Jaworski, Coach Mike Ditka, Chris “Boomer” Berman, and others.

 

A veteran of television sketch comedy as a cast member on “Mad TV” and starring in his own series “Frank TV”, Caliendo has also been a fixture on television for over a decade. He has comedy specials with TBS and Comedy Central and, with over 15 combined appearances between the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Late Show with David Letterman”, Frank continues to be revered for his exuberant appearances on morning news and late-night talk shows.
