Let's Be Frank

Buy one, get one deals, two-for-one drinks -- Floridians are always looking for a way to get more than they paid for. And that thrifty mentality can now permeate over to the finer things in life, like comedy. MADtv veteran and all-around TV personality Frank Caliendo is the physical embodiment of "more for the same price." The king of impressions has nailed down perfect voices and mannerisms for everyone from George W. Bush to Morgan Freeman and his spot-on John Madden. While Caliendo frequents the ESPN studio and your radio waves, the man of many voices is making his way to our beloved bubble so you can catch him in the act, live and in person. Missing a chance to see Caliendo perform live is like going to Vegas for a week but not going to a show. His act is on caliber with some of comedy's biggest stars, and everyone in your family will have an impression to fawn over. Whether it's Robert De Niro or President Obama, everyone will have a favorite. And while all that impersonating might make it look easy, let's leave this work to the professional. No one at your office wants to hear how much your Jay Leno has improved. See Frank Caliendo live Friday and Saturday at the Fort Lauderdale Improv, located at 5700 Seminole Way in Hollywood. Showtimes are 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and 7 and 9:45 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $30 to $35, plus fees, with a two-drink minimum. Visit ftl.improv.com, or call 954-981-5653.
Fri., Jan. 10, 8 & 10:30 p.m.; Sat., Jan. 11, 7 & 9:45 p.m., 2014
