I vow to never watch anything with that fat, unfunny douche, so I couldn't watch Frank's appearance with said douche.

I forgot to mention this, but Frank was doing some on-site reporting for Fox's Billboard New Years Eve Special from Las Vegas. He was doing it from some bar. I've been trying to find the footage but no luck.

Well, Fred Travelena and Danny Gans have both passed away recently so I think Frank will do a good job filling in for them.

No........casino shows are very lucrative as well as good exposure since casinos are highly popular.....

speaking of which, he's going to be at my local casino on October 2nd.

Default A Quick Timeline: Frank Caliendo

In 2001, a show called Hype aired on the Warner Bros. network. It lasted only 4 months, but with the cancellation of it, it set up the wheels of fate, as it would allow the undiscovered star of the show to find the show that would make him famous. The person I am talking about is Frank Caliendo, and that show is MADtv. A person who with impressions skills that could be considered above the rest. Frank who had already had connections with some MADtv producers was a perfect fit for MADtv. The beginning of Frank's tenure on MADtv would also be the beginning of his rise to fame, so this is a timeline that really shows Frank's first success in Hollywood, so let's get it started. Ladies and Gentlemen the Frank Caliendo timeline.

2001: A few months after the show Hype was cancelled (a show Frank was on) Frank was hired to MADtv without even needing to audition. He didn't even have to go through being a feature player, as he was given repertory status in his first year.

September 22, 2001: Frank appears in his first episode. His first sketch would be called Gutter, where he would play the announcer, and Al Pacino. Watch the sketch

Season 11 2005-2006: Due to episodes missed, it is hard to determine when, or if Frank passed 100 episodes, but it was most likely around this time.

May 20, 2006: Frank appears in his last episode on MADtv. Except for the closing his last sketch would be called Bae Sung on The Sopranos where he would play James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano.

Life After MAD

By the time Frank left MADtv his star was already rising. With his role on Fox NFL Sunday and his many comedy shows around America that he had been doing during his tenure. His role on MADtv may have also helped him land his own sketch comedy show, as in 2007 Frank got his own show on the television network TBS called frankTV, where most of the time he plays all the characters. Frank has often been vocal that he did not like his time on MADtv, saying that it was too mean for his comedy style, and went to a younger demographic than what he was going for, but I think Frank knows that he wouldn't be as popular as he is now if it wasn't for those 5 seasons of MADtv on his back, and I truly believe that he is grateful for the opportunity he was given that really started his career, and will most likely be what he is most remembered for.

I was sad when Frank left, but he had become great outside the show, and at the time for him to leave. He was a big star. Too big for MAD, but he is still in sketch comedy with Franktv, which I am happy about (and also angry that it is on TBS as I use to have it here, but when the Atlanta station split, we lost it here in Canada) which I can watch on the internet with a program I found that bypasses the law.

It launched the "Have the Talk" Web site encouraging consumers to engage in difficult conversations regarding personal finance and insurance issues. The site features humorous video shorts starring comedian Frank Caliendo, which also have been posted on YouTube. Nationwide has also reached out to bloggers on gather.com, a social networking and media Web site."
Go here if you want to see Frank's videos. Frank would watch your videos.

He also does an impression of Charles Barkley in one of the ads and unlike Bush and Madden he does it very poorly.

Frank is in a couple of commercials for DirectTV or Dish Network, i can't remember which. In each commercial he is himself and an impression. They've done commercials of him as Bush, John Madden, and Al Pacino

Well it could all be in his head too....his ego automatically thinks his impressions and brand of comedy are far superior to that of MADtv's.

Doing silly voices isn't exactly high-brow, so I hope that's not what he's thinking.

Fine if he thinks that. I like his show, but I think it panders to an even younger demographic than MADtv did- the ages 8-14 demographic, and perhaps even the older adults demographic. It just hasn't got an edge to it like MADtv has- and it's much tamer than MADtv.
