Between George W. Bush’s failure to claim a 3rd Presidential term and the retirement of NBC’s John Madden, there’s been considerable speculation that terrorist impressionist Frank Caliendo would at long last, leave the public eye.
Apparently, the booking department at Austin’s venerable Paramount Theatre haven’t received the memo. No, not the one about Caliendo sucking (he was originally booked to appear Sept. 11 2008 — never forget!), rather the note acknowledging the comedian’s already tenuous grasp on cultural relevancy will soon rival that of Rich Little.
That’s $51.25 to see Caliendo do Barkley, folks. No wait, I’m sorry, the Paramount’s press release says Frank can mimic Jim Rome, too.
