MAREK KALISZUK

POLISH ACTOR AND SINGER

BORN JANUARY 15, 1980 IN OLSZTYN, POLAND

 

IN 2003 GRADUATED FROM THE STUDIUM WOKALNO-AKTORSKIE IN GDYNIA AND IN 2011 RECEIVED HIS MASTER OF FINE ARTS IN VOCAL PERFORMANCE FROM THE AKADEMIA MUZYCZNA IM. STANISLAWA MONIUSZKI IN GDANSK.

 

Marek Kaliszuk is truly a one of the kind artist, a triple threat, ready to sing, dance and act when the role calls for it. He proved it by winning the 2nd edition of popular TV show Your Face Sounds Familiar in 2014 – a singing competition, where each week actors embody a different music icon. He won the hearts of tv audiences and jurors alike with his portrayal of famous singers, both Polish and international, including Maria Callas, Aretha Franklin, George Michael, Michal Wisniewski and Hanka Ordonowna. He dazzled with his never-ending ability to transform himself physically and vocally, showcasing at the same time amazing range and technic, both as an actor and a singer.

With roles in musicals, theater, tv and film his popularity grows daily. It all started with his performances in such cult TV classic like M jak Milosc, Ojciec Mateusz, Pierwsza milosc and 2XL and the participation in 7th edition of Dancing with the Stars. In 2016 entire country enjoyed his role in Bodo – a new tv series by Telewizja Polska S.A. (TVP S.A. – Poland’s only public broadcasting television company, with 13 national and 16 regional channels) based on the life of 20s and 30s Polish cinema icon, Eugeniusz Bodo. He also stared in new tv series by Polsat, Dwoje we Troje, directed by Tomasz Konecki. TV audiences know him as well from the ever popular Name The Tune tv show (TVP1), in which he performs since 2015. 

In 2018 Marek Kaliszuk made his way to the stage of the 55th KFPP OPOLE 2018 – the holly grail for Polish singers, the most important stage in Poland for any singer.  He took part in a very special concert of Polish timeless hits “Ja to mam szczęście” where he performed two songs, and his duet with Elżbieta Romanowska, an inspiring rendition of beloved classic “Czy te oczy mogą kłamać”, brought the house to its feet!  In the same year, Marek was one of the stars in the Mother’s Day Concert “Nie ma jak u mamy” organized by and televised on national tv network – TVP1.

For over 12 years he was soloist at Teatr Muzyczny in Gdynia, where he stared in countless music productions, including Grease, Fidler on the Roof, Beauty and the Beast, Footloose, Fame, Jesus Christ Superstar and Spamalot. Than in 2015 Marek moved to Warsaw.
In November of 2015 Teatr Capitol premiered a brand-new production of Lend me a tenor! which stars Marek Kaliszuk as Max, a star struck hotel assistant manager with a dream to become a world-famous tenor. And since March of 2017 he showcases his comedic timing in a brand-new production of The Birdcage by Teatr Gudejko.

With Marek Kaliszuk all you see is not all you get – he is not only a handsome actor & singer, he also is a songwriter, composer and producer. In July of 2015 his brand-new single I won’t stop debuted accompanied by video – both were written & produced by him. He currently is working on his debut album, which he describes as “all that is best in pop, dance and electronic.” With hits like Naprzeciw and Bez Ciebie Nie Ma Mnie surging the charts, the album – written, composed and produced by Marek Kaliszuk and Adam Biernatowski of Studio Custom34 in Gdansk – cannot be here soon enough.
