Comedian Frank Caliendo to perform at halftime of Bucks home opener

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE -- To tip off the 2014-15 season and celebrate a new era of Bucks basketball in Milwaukee, renowned comedian, actor and impressionist Frank Caliendo will entertain fans during halftime of the 2014-15 Home Opener on Friday, Oct. 31. The game tips off at 7:30 p.m., and all in attendance will be treated to a hilarious performance from the home-grown comedian.

Though Caliendo is now known across the world for his humorous impressions, he began performing stand-up comedy at local night clubs and comedy clubs in the Milwaukee area while a student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He also grew up in Waukesha and attended Waukesha South High School.

On Oct. 31, fans can look forward to a high energy act from Caliendo – a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that will start at a frenetic pace and never let up. Appropriately described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey,” he is one comedian who should not be missed. Caliendo is perhaps best known for his variety of sports-related impressions, but he makes his live shows appealing for everyone in the audience by continually including a little bit of every major genre – sports, political figures and celebrities.
