Default Frank Caliendo's cd

Has anyone bought it? Is it good? Is it just impressions?

I think it's simply one of his stand-up concerts on disc. I don't know for sure though, because I don't have it.

You're right, he's not one of my favorites. But, his voice when he does celebrity impressions is many times right on, even if he doesn't physically act like the person that he is impersonating. My favorite so far is his Jay Leno. I'm just thinking that his CD might be pretty good. He still isn't one of my favorites in the cast, nice guy though I must admit. And he is talented.

Okay, well after your comparison of him to Nelson and Christian, I had to wonder :p

And yeah, I completely agree with you - his voice is always dead-on, but sometimes the physical impression isn't, like with the Dreyfuss impression.
I do love his Jay Leno impression - and actually, I think he really nails both the voice and physical characteristics for that one, it's one of his most solid impression. My favorite impression of his though is Robin Williams, and with that one he really nails both as well

Seriously, I wouldn't even compare Paul Vogt to Christian Duguay. His Bush impersonation was something that any halfway-decent actor could do... (It was still better than Will Ferrel's impression, but that's not saying much.) ..And yet the impression was arguably the best thing he could do on MADtv. IMO, Andrew Daly's straight man was better than Christian's, so there goes another one.
