Untitled[edit]

Was this article written by his publicist? -Agerard 22:59, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Wouldn't it also be good to say that whenever he impersonates George W. Bush his voice bears a striking resemblance to the President's? I mean if you hear his voice compared to the President's they sound almost identical! 72.197.133.100 06:57, 17 August 2006 (UTC)

That's the point of the impression. 60.224.211.205 02:53, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Really trivial trivia[edit]

An anonymous editor added (unreferenced) cruft about some sports prediction that Caliendo supposedly made. I reverted it and he/she re-added it. This is unencyclopedic and has nothing to do with the article. Many sports columnists and TV sports people make predictions about the outcomes of games, yet hardly any of it is worthy of being published here. --rogerd 04:51, 16 January 2007 (UTC)

You are right, that information is irrelevant. I deleted some other irrelevant information. Cheers!

Will anyone care in 2 years that FC did an impression of Fred Grandy? No. But you don't delete that information. I have asked nicely and made a case. Please stop reverting this information. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 130.127.230.167 (talkcontribs) 13:30, January 25, 2007 (UTC)

A better analogy would be if someone quoted what Caliendo was specifically saying when he did an impression of Grandy. Who he impersonates is encyclopedic, but the minutia about what he says in any given impersonation isn't. --rogerd 18:37, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

What a bunch of BULLSHIT!!! Why are my changes CONTINUALLY reverted?!?!?! Now you have a bot changing them?!?! What is wrong with you people. ASSHOLES —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 130.127.230.167 (talkcontribs) 13:22, January 29, 2007 (UTC)

The reason why this is continually reverted is that it is not information that belongs in an encyclopedia article. If you look at other sportscasters articles, you will not find detailed information about their individual predictions. This is just one of many predictions that Caliendo has made. Also, this information is not referenced. Please stop vandalizing this article. This information does not belong here. Also, please review wikipedia policy on personal attacks, and civility. --rogerd 23:57, 29 January 2007 (UTC)
Awww, looks like Frank or his publicists are upset! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.169.81.74 (talk) 12:48, 20 December 2008 (UTC)

Nothing in this whole article is referenced.

If you are going to pull this "unreferenced information needs to be deleted argument" than do it. Cite all of the information in the article or don't. One way or the other. Or leave my edits alone. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 130.127.230.167 (talkcontribs) 12:27, January 30, 2007 (UTC)

has anyone ever heard him doing an impresson of Julia Louis-Dreyfus? im tempted to take it off the list of impressions. Ashburn247 06:10, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Grammar[edit]

"He also did almost the whole cast..." Someone needs to clean up the grammar. Kwyjibear 07:05, 21 January 2007 (UTC)

How about this grammatical gem? - "He has just got a new show picked up by TBS called "The Frank Show"." Who wrote this!? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 69.249.215.225 (talkcontribs) 19:30, March 28, 2007 (UTC)
Either Frank Caliendo or his publicists?

Consensus about inclusion of specific football predictions[edit]

An anonymous editor keeps adding information about Caliendo's prediction of the Bears/Saints playoff game. My contention is that it is of very minor relevance to the article and should not be included. Caliendo has made many predictions, as have other football analysts that are not cited, and shouldn't be cited in wikipedia.

Here are some of his repeated attempts to add this information: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12] [13]

--rogerd 17:51, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

I would like to get a consensus of interested parties about whether or not this information should be included in this article:

  • Remove (reasons stated above) --rogerd 17:51, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Remove The way it's written, it sounds like a POV fork to me, like he's just angry that Caliendo doesn't think the Bears will win. --Kitch (Talk : Contrib) 18:26, 3 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Remove This information isn't relevant to the article. Otherwise, we'll have to go back and find every time Frank was wrong on his pick and then post that. The notion that we're even debating this is garbage. --Zpb52 07:07, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Remove Per Zpb53 - Also, this user's hostility is kind of alarming. My only involvement in this was to undo vandalism diff, and I'm not too knowledgable about the subject, but to stick one random prediction in there seems trivial nut-meg 17:26, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
  • Remove Same reasons as stated above by others.Chickenmonkey 07:23, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

protected[edit]

I've temp protected the article for a week to give the page a rest from the anon who insists his text must go on the page despite everyone else thinking it shouldn't. Would someone please remove the protected note from the top of the page in a weeks time ( i'm likely to forget) Thanks Theresa Knott | Taste the Korn 18:23, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

John Madden[edit]

In addition to "best known for impersonating George W. Bush" I added "John Madden".

  • How is he best known for impersonating either of them? I haven't heard anything about those impersonations until I looked on this page.--WaltCip 23:30, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
I thought he was best known for Madden, Chris Farley, and maybe one or two others that you just don't see anyone else performing nowadays, and are therefore his trademarks. Still, being the president on a comedy sketch show is important. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.72.21.221 (talk) 03:25, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
