Comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo comes to Penn State University Park for a live performance at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 16, in Eisenhower Auditorium. Tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 20.
Caliendo has appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Show with David Letterman," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Conan," "Comedy Central Presents" and "SportsCenter." He’s featured in regular segments on ESPN’s "Sunday NFL Countdown," and he also had a decade-long run on "FOX NFL Sunday" as Terry Bradshaw’s nemesis.
But the live comedy stage is where Caliendo shows what he’s all about. His high-energy act blends observations, impressions, characters and anecdotal stories that begin at a frenetic pace and never let up. "The Hollywood Reporter" described Caliendo as a “combination of Robin Williams and Jim Carrey.”
Tickets for the performance, presented by the Lewistown Sentinel, are $47 for a seat in orchestra rows AA through A and $35 for a seat in the remainder of the orchestra, grand tier and balcony.
Beginning at 9 a.m. Feb. 20, purchase tickets online at www.cpa.psu.edu or by phone at 814-863-0255. Outside the local calling area, phone 1-800-ARTS-TIX.

Caliendo has also appeared on the TV shows "Hot in Cleveland," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "The View." He’s a frequent guest on ESPN’s morning radio/TV show "Mike & Mike" and was featured in the satirical film "The Comebacks."
