I just dont think he's funny.

He's like the guy at the party who thinks he's hilarious, and proceeds to slap your back and tell you how hilarious he is.

Years ago Caliendo was on Johnny Dare's show along with Pablo Francisco. They were doing yo mama jokes as dueling Dennis Hoppers on the radio. I still don't think I've ever laughed that hard in the car listening to something. I literally damned near wrecked the car due to me laughing so hard.

The guy makes his voice sound like other voices well. Give him credit for that.

But in my opinion, the actual things he says are not funny, and it gets old quick, once I get past the "Oh, yeah, that does sound like _____" part.

Like someone else said... the writing sucks.

Oh, and he's way too fat to make me believe he's that character when he dresses up. He's trying too hard.

My favorite thing he did was when he did all four guys on the FOX pregame show. That was great because his James Brown was better than James Brown.

The guy doing Triumph is 1,000,000 times funnier than Caliendo and he doesn't need a team of makeup artists to accomplish his act. Caliendo is funny for a couple of minutes and then it becomes boring hearing him try to repackage the same jokes over and over again.

He's talented but it gets tired pretty quick.
I've never seen a comedian have the crowd yell so much stuff at them, though. When I saw him people just shouted out, "Do Madden! Do Bush!" almost the whole show.
That and when he would start an impression people would go, "THAT'S Terry Bradshaw!" like it was a guessing game.

Why Not?

Being a comedian is a funny game. You can be the best in the world at it. Like Elite, still most people always are haters. It is a total mind game to focus on the positives and focus on your inner game and what you think, and you have to take the critics words to heart sometimes because that's how you get better, but you also have to dump the pure haters words out. Caliendo has found a way to just enjoy doing impressions so much he has dumped zillions of hours into these impressions.

Demonpenz
08-01-2014, 09:17 AM
It's like he had enough time to be funny or have the elite impression skills, and he enjoys being the absolute best in the world at impressions, and he found joy and maybe gets off on the fact that "Hey I can't be the funniest guy in the world" but he is the best at his craft at impressions.

Agreed. But with that, the comedy kind of wears off quickly when he doesn't have anything funny to go along with the impression. Basically, some of the impression skits just go on too long. That's just me though. For example, his Morgan Freeman reading Lebron's letter was funny for the first 20 seconds or so.

When I finally got to see more work, the impressions were there, but the comedy was not. He just wasn't very funny.

Very good at doing impressions, but he needs to pay some writers for material. I get bored very quickly when watching him.

There were some laughs in that Gruden skit though. Thanks for sharing.

Kimmel outgrew his role. He got his late show and left. Kimmel was brutally honest. I remember Fox did a fluff piece on TO's grandma going senile. That same week, TO called out his coach on bad play calling costing them the game. Kimmel called TO a jerk and called out his PR and Fox for the obvious fluff piece as an attempt to improve his image.

Kimmel has not really given a fuck his entire career. Fox should have dropped the comedy segment after he left. No one has come close to matching Kimmel.
Frank is a pretty cool guy but Madden is a colossal prick.

My favorite Madden story: Madden is known for only traveling by bus. They had DirecTV on the bus so he could watch TV while traveling across the country. It breaks so they have a service guy fix it. They cant stop because of scheduling, so he fixes it going down the highway. After it is fixed, Madden makes him get out on the side of the road and leaves him there, while they continue on.

what a jackoff.
