FOR RELEASE: September 23, 2013

Frank Caliendo is known from his appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, the Late Show with David Letterman, and his current segments on ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown.  You will also know him from his decade-long run on FOX NFL SUNDAY as Terry Bradshaw’s nemesis, but the live comedy stage is where Frank really shows you what he’s all about. His high energy act is a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that start at a frenetic pace and never let up. Once described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey”, Frank is one comedian that should not be missed. Other places you might have seen Frank: The Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan O’Brien, The View, Comedy Central Presents, Hot In Cleveland, The Comebacks, Mike and Mike, SportsCenter and other ESPN shows.

The Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, located near the center of UW-Green Bay’s bayshore campus on the northeast side of the city of Green Bay, is known for its elegant design and the acoustic excellence of its 2,000-seat main hall, Cofrin Family Hall.
