Pablo Francisco

When Pablo Francisco hits the stage, he immediately brings his audiences to their feet with boisterous laughter and applause. He weaves together his arsenal of 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.

It is not uncommon to sense the anticipation of Pablo's audience as his fans await their favourite impressions, while being surprised by his unpredictable transformations. Pablo's impressions are so spot on that if your eyes were closed you'd be hard pressed to tell it wasn't Arnold, Jackie, or Jerry up on stage.

Francisco's fan base is exploding worldwide. In addition to selling out clubs, theatres, and colleges across America, he's making a huge impact internationally. He's performed to sold out crowds with his most recent national tour of Sweden, which was capped off with stops in London and Amsterdam. In the Spring of 2009, Pablo completed a European tour where he sold almost 20,000 tickets in 9 cities across Scandinavia (the Fall 2007 Tour sold 30,000 tickets in 30 days).

Francisco is one of the internet's most viral comics. His enormous popularity has driven his MySpace Comedy page into the top 25 out of 33,000, placing Pablo's page in the top three most visited on the site. His You Tube videos have hooked over 40 million views and he has over 55,000 fans on Facebook.

Not just a viral phenomenon, Francisco has released multiple comedy albums, appeared on MADtv, Family Guy, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and has had his own Comedy Central Special. He is currently building his new one hour Comedy Central special to be filmed next year. Francisco recently contributed self-produced content to digital campaigns for Nokia, Absolut and Rhapsody.
