About the Actor

A funny thing happens to audiences when they see Pablo Francisco live for the first time. In a matter of minutes, crowds go from the quiet response that often greets a Pablo Strutting relative unknown, to jolts of boisterous laughter and applause.

What accounts for the transformation? Namely the 20-something Tucson native's ability to create vividly funny living pictures using strikingly authentic off-the-wall sound effects and loads of his own ample imagination.

Pablo's send-up of grimly narrated action-movie previews, with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a tortilla vendor targeted by the mob, is one good example. Another is his hilarious spoofing of those intensely melodramatic Spanish language soap operas on the Telemundo Cable Network.

A lifelong comedy junkie, as kid Pablo competed with a friend to see who could video tape more comics from television. He got his first professional break at age 17, when he and his aforementioned buddy formed a duo called the "Blowout Boys," snuck into a local steakhouse and took honors in a comedy competition against older, but clearly inferior opponents. "A lot of them read their stuff from notes. At least we had memorized our material!" recalls Pablo.

From humble beginnings, big things have started to happen. He is host of Sí TV’s Latino Laugh Festival: The Show and was a Mad TV cast member. He has also appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, HBO’s Loco Slam, Showtime’s Full Frontal Comedy and Comedy Central Presents. Pablo, now an LA resident, is busy distinguishing himself in top clubs around the country, with more than 250 dates a year.

Product Description

Pablo Francisco adds his brand of comedy to the Ad Lib Breakout Comedy Series with Bits And Pieces, taped in Southern California in early 2004.

The DVD, complete with a bonus CD, sends you into the whirlwind comedy of this rising star. The show features explosive material that tears apart everything from love songs and psycho chicks to Viagra and American justice. With his uncanny talent for creating visceral images using strikingly authentic, off-the-wall sound effects, Pablo keeps the laughs coming.

DVD Extras:
- Hilarious commentary track
- "Inside The Comic’s Studio" featurette
- Beans & Rice screen saver
- Bonus CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding November 14, 2007
Format:DVD
While most Americans do not know who he is, Pablo Francisco gained national attention in the late 1990s when he became a regular performer on MADtv. After his stint at Fox, he appeared in other TV shows doing live stand-up comedy and went on tour with Carlos Mencia and the late Freddy Soto. He still maintains a busy schedule performing around the country, especially at his favorite venue, the Improv in Los Angeles where many famous American comedians have performed.

In this DVD, Francisco gives his most brilliant comedic performance. His vocal impressions of famous personalities, combined with his ability to devise ridiculous yet hilarious situations, make him a pleasure to watch. For example, he impersonates Don LaFontaine to simulate a fictional movie trailer about Arnold Schwarzenegger fighting the Italian mafia's encroachments on his tortilla-selling business.

Throughout Bits and Pieces, Francisco jokes about many things like strip club dancers, body piercings, NASCAR racing, Viagra users, Latino music, and softcore pornography. While he lacks the genius of comedians such as Richard Pryor, his work is still very funny. His ability to keep audience members in a continued state of laughter is a testament to his excellent comedic skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny As Hell. One of the Funniest Live Shows Ever. March 24, 2005
Format:DVD
Pablo Francisco is funny as hell. Pure and simple. He's got way different material than most comedians today and he uses sound effects he produces himself to make things funny. He has your typical comedian jokes about porn. But then he'll begin to talk about the music they play in porn. And his impressions are great too. Like of the guy who narrates the movie commercials is just brilliant and then doing an impression of Arnold Schwarzenegger selling tacos on TV. Stuff like that. This guy is a step behind George Carlin in my oppinion. Absolutely hilarious. A++++

5.0 out of 5 stars Raising the bar for all other comics November 13, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is what got me in to stand-up comedy. This special is just as good when I watch it today as 5 years ago. Great stories, insane punch-lines and a finish that leaves you gasping for air. Remember to watch Pablo's commentary of the show, it's almost better than the main event. He does sound-effects to his own show-hilarious!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious comedy! July 1, 2008
Format:DVD
If your sides aren't splitting after the first eight minutes, you're probably not much into comedy at all. Pablo is absolutely outstanding in this release. From his "movie guy" trailer piece to his R2D2 impersonation to his mariachi band imitation, Pablo is truly a comedic star. This isn't the best dvd for children of course, but for the adult viewer who enjoys a good stand up comedy and isn't offended by a few swear words, this is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Funny March 3, 2006
Format:DVD
All I got to say is this guy is hilarious! His ability to imitate people, music, and other sounds is what really makes him funny in my opinion. If you like laughing, then buy this dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Piss-Your-Pants Funny February 26, 2005
By Abe
Format:DVD
I had heard of Pablo Francisco, years back he even toured smaller comedy clubs, and I had wanted to check him out... but never got the chance. Enter this DVD. What was an impulse buy at (forgive me, I attend college in a small town that doesn't even have a Best Buy) Wal-Mart, has instantly become one of my favorites discs. This guy does stand-up in a truly unique way, at no point in his act does he ever appear to be having anything but a good time. I can appreciate anyone who loves their job that much! Plus the guy's freakin' hilarious. Buy this DVD! Don't forget to pack a change of underwear. ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars This DVD is as addicting as heroin! February 9, 2006
Format:DVD
My friends and myself included have been quoting material on this CD for months! I am actually ordering another copy because a friend of mine wants to keep the first copy I bought.

The humor is top notch, with some fantastic anecdotes and characters that stick in your memory. The impressions are among the finest I have ever heard and are quite possibly exemplify the most talented array of impressions offered by a single individual on the planet. He cleverly integrates at least half a dozen characters, each with his/her own fire.

Pablo Francisco is not only funny, but exquisitely talented in all of content, delivery, and recurring story lines interlaced within the routine. His mannerisms help to fully paint the picture of each situation and are a fantastic complement to the spoken words. He gives off an air of an individual who is kind and enthusiastic... an interesting duo in a comedian I know, but you will understand what I mean when you watch. He's very likeable in that you won't feel offended or annoyed by his humor and it's predictability which seems to be a flaw common in latin/caucasian crossover humor.

In short, Pablo Francisco is unlike anything you have ever seen. Your mouth will gape open with amazement within the times that laughter does not overcome you. It is beginning to end, a continually rising routine that ends in a grand finale the likes of a downtown fireworks show. You'll be glad you spent the money... hell, I'm buying the DVD for the second time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suggestion May 1, 2005
Format:DVD
If you would like to see Pablo Francisco live with new material, he is touring and can be seen at local universities and comedy clubs. Mostly new material, but some old stuff with other stuff added on to it. I saw him live and laughed for a straight hour. Great comedian, not so much for the kids, but the funniest comedian I have ever seen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny
This is an adult comedy, but he is not nearly as raunchy as a lot of other comedians. I think it's tame enough except for the most conservative adults

Pablo Francisco has a great routine. Equally vulgar as it is entertaining. If you like dirty humor you'll love Pablo.
