Impersonations have been a staple of comedy for hundreds of years. Comics can literally spend their entire career impersonating pop culture figures, athletes, politicians, and more while making a very solid living.
One of the more successful impersonators of our generation is Frank Caliendo. Frank has had his own television show, worked for ESPN, FOX, and many more media outlets during his time as an impersonator.
Most recently Caliendo was in the spotlight for reading LeBron James’ comeback article in the voice of Morgan Freeman. If you missed that hilarious bit, check it out right here.
Today, Caliendo is back in the headlines, and this time he is impersonating ESPN’s NFL analysts. In the video below, check out Caliendo impersonate Ron Jaworski, Adam Schefter, Jon Gruden, Mel Kiper Jr., as well as a few other NFL head coaches and owners.
Caliendo’s impersonation of Jon Gruden is absolutely perfect. Not only does he have Gruden’s mannerisms and voice inflection down pat, but he even has Gruden’s distinct facial features down to a science as well.
