He's a high-energy comedic act blending observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that start at a frenetic pace and never let up. You probably know Frank Caliendo from his appearances on The Tonight Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, and his current segments on ESPN Sunday NFL Countdown. Or maybe you 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. Once described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey,” Frank is one comedian that should not be missed.
Frank Caliendo Tickets: $40, $44, $48, or $54, depending on seating area.

Teaser clip from New Jersey’s public television network (NJTV) special, taped at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center’s Prudential Hall in Newark, NJ, May 2014:
We are thrilled to have you with us for our 11th season, as we enter into a new decade with the Forest Hills Fine Arts Center.
This season has a little bit of something for everyone, comedy, music legends, timely Broadway hits, and old favorites too. We think the variety in music and entertainment will be something your entire family can enjoy.
While we think providing one-of-a-kind events and entertainment is important, we always have our mission in mind: enhancing the artistic growth and enjoyment of area youth, families and community members, while providing opportunities for students of Forest Hills Public Schools to experience the Arts.
As we start a new decade at the Center, we reflect
on the incredible support we have received from our West Michigan community.
Thank you to the many season partners, sponsors, community members, families,
students, staff, and arts patrons that have continued to help us grow.
It’s going to be an incredible season and we are looking forward to sharing
it with you!
