I STAND BY MY CHOICE OF CALIENDO. From Mike Murray, of Chico, Calif.: "Peter, Peter, Peter! Caliendo better than Belushi? Belushi was an incredible comedian and performer. Caliendo is nothing more than an impressionist, albeit a good one. He's Rich Little, modern day. Nothing more.''
How about Belushi, as a zit, in Animal House? You may be right. You probably are right. There's no accounting for taste. Caliendo is the funniest guy in America right now.
Yes, I forgot how awful a film "Animal House" is. It would have been WAY funnier with Frank Caliendo in it! He could have done a Nixon impression!
Apparently, Peter King also lives in a world without Stephen Colbert, Dave Chappelle, Dave Attell, Demetry Martin, Chris Rock, Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Brian Regan, The staff of The Onion, Will Ferrell, Louis CK, Steve Carell, Sacha Baron Cohen, Seth Rogen, Judd Apatow, Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, Larry David, Conan O'Brien, Christopher Guest, Howard Stern, Harry Shearer, Matt Groening, the "Flight of the Conchords" guys, and about 7 million other people.
Jesus fucking Christ.
Update from CC & UM: Yeah, since impressions are the baseline for what's funny, let's not forget how terrible Belushi was at them.
