For most of us, the ability to nail impressions of famous people would be a wasted gift. We’d use our best Bill Clinton voice to call in an order of Buffalo Wild Wings or spend our mornings on the phone sharing our hot sports opinions with Norm Hitzges in full Charles Barkley mode. But Frank Caliendo transcends the countless practical joke applications of his talent, turning his gift for impressions into a full-fledged career that’s landed him on everything from MADtv to Fox NFL Sunday. Caliendo’s impressions are nothing short of amazing — he skewers celebrities, politicians and has a special affinity for sports personalities. Check out his signature blend of stand-up comedy and uncanny imitations as he hits the stage at the Addison Improv, 4980 Beltline Road, from Friday through Saturday. Tickets range $30 to $45; call 972-404-8501 or visit improv.com.
