From June 17th to the 20th, the Funny Bone in Dayton welcomes comedian Pablo Francisco, as he continues to bring his audiences to their feet with boisterous laughter and applause.
Francisco weaves together his various characters, spontaneous outbursts, and clever insights to create a stand-up show that more resembles an hour-long comedic jazz riff. He is an off-the-wall, animated character that points out the absurdity in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world.
His unmatched take on all things pop culture has helped him to become one of the most popular touring comedians, worldwide. Pablo’s enormous popularity continues to sour driving his Myspace Comedy page, http://www.myspace.com/pablofrancisco into the top three most visited on the site.
His outrageously funny material has also hooked millions of viewers on his YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/pablofranciscocomedy.
During Francisco’s show, fans await their favorite impressions, while being surprised by his unpredictable transformations. Those who experience his show for the first time find themselves captivated by his impressions. Gene Lavanchy of FOX – TV Boston calls him “the most talented comedian in the business today”. His unbelievable ability to physically morph himself into movie stars, singers, friends, family, and a multitude of nationalities give Pablo’s show a universal appeal. His drop-dead funny spoofing often leaves his audiences struggling to catch their breath which is the driving force behind his huge success. His rendition of the intensely melodramatic Spanish language soap operas on Telemundo and his narration of the action-movie preview with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a tortilla vendor bring screams of laughter coast to coast as he continues to sell out concert venues, universities and comedy clubs.
Francisco’s critically acclaimed ONE HOUR special on Comedy Central entitled “OUCH!” continues to stay on the network’s most requested list. DVDTALK calls “OUCH!” “Truly original and funny”. His much anticipated follow-up Comedy Central Special is due out in 2010. In addition to his Comedy Central specials, he has appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, Comedy Central’s “The Show Biz Show w/ David Spade” and “Mind of Mencia”. He has also been a cast member on the Fox Network’s sketch comedy show “Mad TV,” TBS’s “Frank TV,” and made his debut appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show in 2009.
Francisco’s DVD “OUCH!” is available in major retail stores nationwide and at http://www.pablofrancisco.com or www.myspace.com/pablofrancisco.
