Comedian Pablo Francisco AKA “The Movie Trailer Guy” with his Drop-Dead Funny impressions will leave his audiences struggling to catch their breath at
The DC Improv, February 17th – 20th!
February 17th – 20th, The Improv in Washington, DC welcomes back comedian Pablo Francisco. Pablo continues to bring 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.
His unmatched take on all things pop culture has taken him into the ranks of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. Pablo’s enormous popularity continues to sour driving his Myspace Comedy page into the top three most visited on the site. His outrageously funny material has hooked millions of viewers on his YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/pablofranciscocomedy .
Pablo embarked on his forth European tour last fall and his international profile continues to grow. He sold out the world renowned Milky Way in Amsterdam and his show at the Troxy in London, sold over 26,000 tickets on his third 16 city tour of Sweden. Concurrently, Pablo is building his new one hour Comedy Central special to be filmed this year while packing colleges and major concert venues across the country. Francisco recently contributed self-produced content to digital campaigns for Nokia, Absolut and Rhapsody. Pablo also performed at the Australia Comedy Festival this past spring.
It is not uncommon to sense the anticipation of Pablo’s audience as his fans await their favorite impressions, while being surprised by his unpredictable transformations. Those who experience Pablo’s show for the first time find themselves captivated by his hilarious dead on impressions. Gene Lavanchy of FOX – TV Boston calls Pablo “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. This gifted performer continues to thrive on his creativity and the spontaneity of stand up comedy selling out concert venues, universities and comedy clubs alike. Pablo continually pushes the envelope, constantly refining new material and frighteningly accurate embodiments.
Pablo's own 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 2011. In addition to his Comedy Central specials, Pablo 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 has appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show. Watch for Pablo this spring in the new Disney Movie “Kick Buttowski” alongside Tony Hawk.
Pablo’s DVD “OUCH!” is available in major retail stores nationwide and at www.pablofrancisco.com or www.myspace.com/pablofrancisco.
