MadTV star to headline Gator Growl



GAINESVILLE - Frank Caliendo, one of the nation's best impersonators, will headline this year's Gator Growl, the 84th annual event.

Billed as the "World's Largest Student Run Pep Rally,'' the event will be held Nov. 2 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, in conjunction with Homecoming.

Caliendo is best-known for his witty sketches referencing pop culture, and his realistic mimicry of a wide cast of politicians, actors, commentators and other comedians. He is most know for his John Madden and George W. Bush impersonations.

He has been a frequent guest on "Fox NFL Sunday" and "The Late Show with David Letterman" while starring on "MadTV" since 2001. This fall, Caliendo's own show will air on TBS, titled "The Frank Show."

General Admission tickets are available through Ticketmaster at (904) 353-3309 for $20 each.
