Frank TV

If you are anything like me, and truly appreciate the great stand up comedians, then I’m sure you already know who Frank Caliendo is. But if you don’t, here’s a quick peek at some of his work: * Franks Official Website can be found HERE.

Much to my joy & surprise, he is the star of a new show called Frank TV.

Frank TV is to premiere tonight, November 20th 2007 @ 11:00pm on TBS, wherein Frank Caliendo will be showcasing quite a few of his on-spot impersonations. No one does a better John Madden, George Dub-Yah Bush, or, Robert DeNiro (just to name a few).

I have seen most, if not all, of his stand-up, but I have never seen him in full costume as these characters. I’m sure the added bonus of costumes will only add to the awesomeness of his already totally super repertoire.

Pressure Cook

CHEF AND RESTAURATEUR RALPH PAGANO HOSTS PRESSURE COOK, A NEW ADVENTURE/COOKING SERIES ON MOJO A HIGH DEFINITION TELEVISION NETWORK:

A Hampton’s Culinary Force, Pagano Travels the World, Cooking to Earn Enough Money to Return Home!

NEW YORK- How would you like to be blind-folded, dropped off in an unknown exotic location and be forced to earn your transportation costs home just by cooking? If you are celebrated chef and restaurateur Ralph Pagano, you are just the person for that challenge. With ten half-hour episodes, look out for MOJO’s newest high definition series Pressure Cook on Sundays 9:30pm, ET/PT.

Pagano is no stranger to “pressure cooking” situations. Blessed with a magnetic personality and great sense of humor along with his cooking talent, he became popular as a finalist on Fox’s Hell’s Kitchen and a contestant on Food Network’s Iron Chef. Pagano has been a culinary force in the Hamptons for over ten years: co-owner of the famed “World Pie” restaurant, executive chef/culinary coordinator for the Hampton’s Food and Wine Festival and proprietor of celebrity catering service “Ralph Pagano Events.” Pressure Cook locations include Iceland, Mexico, Wyoming, Belize, Italy, Prague and Brazil (with three more exotic locations to come).

Each Pressure Cook episode begins when Ralph is brought to the airport without knowing his destination. Once landing in the surprise spot, he’s given a quick tour of the area, including a brief lesson on local cultural and culinary history and is then left to his own devices. Given only a rental car and just enough money to cover his accommodations, he must in only 72 hours cook his way towards making enough cash to return home. If he fails, Ralph must suffer some distasteful gastronomic punishment such as eating Rocky Mountain oysters or the “Queen’s Rat” (a Belizean rodent). Obstacles like language barriers, proper etiquette and wardrobe challenges create suspenseful and outrageous moments for the incredibly energetic and engaging chef.

Ralph Pagano, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has worked his way though some of the best kitchens in New York City, including “The Sign of the Dove,” “One if by Land, Two if by Sea,” “The Hudson River Club” and “The River Café.” Creating a style all his own, he served as executive chef at “Bobby Van’s Steakhouse” and “The World Pie” restaurant group (where he was also co-owner). He currently operates “Ralph Pagano Events,” a full-service catering company where he cooks for elegant events on yachts, at polo matches and at clambakes for hundreds. In addition to his television appearances on Pressure Cook, Hell’s Kitchen and Iron Chef, he is working on his first book, examining his new life as a “gypsy” chef and covering his life-long gastronomic travels.

Pressure Cook is produced by Helicon Media. Executive Producer is Sandy Green. For MOJO, Emilio Nunez is Executive Producer and Siobhan Graham is Supervising Producer.
