Frank Caliendo Brings Bush, Cheney, Pacino and More Impressions to 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Frank Caliendo, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Frank Caliendo doesn't even have to be doing a stand-up routine to break into his various impressions. On 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on NBC), he started off telling a story about performing at the Congressional Dinner, but it got derailed almost immediately.

While he didn't get the chance to do his famous George W. Bush impression for the President, he was able to perform it for Vice President Dick Cheney.

For Leno and his audience, Caliendo brought Bush and Cheney, along with random asides from his impressions of Al Pacino, Charles Barkley, Robin Williams and even Leno himself.

It was the same kind of frantic, scatter-brained interview we're used to with the real Robin Williams, except that Caliendo was slipping into and out of bits from all the different voices he knows.

He has an impressive roster of voices to tap into, but it was all the old standbys for 'The Tonight Show.' With Caliendo you can make a game out of trying to identify the impressions as he quickly slips from one to the next.

Dick Cheney is out shopping for a heart. Cripes! They can plug in a reptilian pump and not have to worry about rejection.

Frank is NOT an impersonator, his routines are terrible. Anyone that thinks this little fat guy can impersonate has never seen a good impersonator.

Bush should be known as the magical president. When the twin towers were hit Bush DISAPPEARED. The Iraq nuclear missiles DISAPPEARED. $billions in cash just 'disappeared' in Iraq. The CIA tapes of interrigation DISAPPEARED. Bush was nowhere to be found when 'shotgun Dick' disclosed that Valerie Plame was a (covert) CIA station chief. which was classified information. When our embassy in Serbia burned Bush DISAPPEARED. Bush's Robber Baron presidency has made our money DISAPPEAR. With Voodoo Economics Georgie has made most of our jobs DISAPPEAR. But what would happen if Bush really disappeared? Can you imagine 'Deadeye Dick' with his finger on the nuclear trigger? If that were to happen everyone might just DISAPPEAR!!!!!!! When he wanted to put all the Social Security money in the stock market, Barney Frank said that Wall Street needed to be re-regulated. Bush replied by disappearing. He did manage to APPEAR just long enough to lobby for and sign into law CORPORATE WELFARE for the international banks. Goodbye Goofball Georgie, have fun in Texass.
