Just because a guy can do impressions, doesn't mean he's funny.
Frank Caliendo of Madtv finally gets recognized by getting his own TV show. But what is he being recognized for? His comedy bits aren't funny, and neither are his sketches. The only reason I'm giving this a 4 is because some of his impressions are dead on. His George W. Bush, Michael Richards, John Madden (that's been done so much it's beaten into the ground), Robert Deniro, Al Pacino and many others all sound just like the people....but so what? Because a guy can do voices does that make him funny? No. Frank Caliendo is obviously very good at what he does, but he needs some good writers and material to back up his great voices.
My rating: * 1/2 out of ****. TV14. 30 mins.
