Product Description

Following the enormous success of his last stand-up special, Ouch!, Pablo Francisco once again 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. With his unbelievable ability to physically morph himself into movie stars, singers, friends, family, and a multitude of nationalities, 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, Francisco has earned fans from coast to coast. And fans both new and old will roar at PABLO FRANCISCO: THEY PUT IT OUT THERE, a hilarious off-the-wall event that points out the absurdity in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world as only Pablo can share.

Pablo Francisco was my favorite comedian, which is why it was so disappointing to watch this performance. I have been a fan since I saw him on Comedy Central Presents in 1998. I saw him at the Improv in Hollywood in 2005 and he was hilarious. I attended this taping expecting nothing but greatness, seeing as how "Ouch" was a flawless masterpiece. The same cannot be said for this atrocity of a show. His jokes no longer have stories, he now gets laughs by solely making a bunch of noises and impersonations. These aspects were an added bonus to the joke in the past, not the focal point. At least his impersonations had a place in the joke in his previous sets (the movie voice guy for example.) Now its as if he just uses them to get a cheap laugh and it gets old. His subject matter is out of date and irrelevant at this point, and I expected to see all new material and a set that would at least have coherent flow of some kind. It seems as though he hastily threw this act together, which was completely unexpected for someone who hasn't had a standup special in a few years. Sadly, he now seems like a comedian whose style is comparable to that of Larry the Cable Guy or Jeff Dunham as far as having a schtick goes. Very unfortunate.

Pablo had the seeds of a genius of absurdist comedy in his prior shows. Complex situational comedy - biting and hilarious, peppered with split second shifts in personality, expression, sounds and layers upon layers of humor.

His shows were dominated by perfectly exaggerated personalities and stories so fast paced and incredible that just stopping to sip your beer for a second meant you would miss out on at least 2-3 side splitting moments in the blink of an eye. My friends and I would leave his sought out live shows with bruised lungs from laughing so hard and red faced from having to stop laughing to breath. Each show was cathartic: therapy for the truly mad world we live in - 2 hours of escape and an ambitious self review of our own lives through the lens of stand up comedy. The parody and sophistication was amazing - he was top of the world in my personal comedy rankings and there was nobody even close.

Lately though his live shows have become much more join the dot comedy - as this video shows. Still really funny and smart - but a more disconnected arrays of characters and impressions with one liners thrown in and occasional ad-lib - often quite geo-specific such as the AllState guy (luckily I've lived across the US and know who this is - but not everyone). As a Brit who lives on the twisted and sarcastic whit and absurdity in my stand up humor, I hope Pablo steps back a little and winds back to the fantastic cathartic comedyland only he can create. I miss the Nascar guy and derivatives, the hipster goth and metal band dudes and their troubled song writing lives, the perfect US suburban robo-dads, goth kids, the crazy girlfriends and the myriad Pablo-speak mentaloids. Pablo - if you are listening, please bring back the stuff that required close attention and stacked thought - you're the best at it there is! This video does't do you justice.

I understand that comedy is subjective. Along with music, it is one of the harder categories of entertainment to judge because, oftentimes, it just comes down to a matter of taste. But comedy DVDs have an additional stigma that other DVD choices don't face. They have less replay value. If you are a fan of a particular comedian and you follow them, you have to expect that you will hear some material that they've used successfully in the past. The most common complaint I see leveled at comedy DVDs are that the jokes aren't fresh. That's right, folks--every time a comedian steps up to the stage, his entire act isn't going to be newly devised and original. And if you were going to tape a show for the general public to buy, wouldn't you use jokes and material that have proven popular and successful? I would!

That said, if you are a fan of Pablo Francisco--nothing in the comedy special "They Put It Out There" will come as much of a surprise. But that doesn't mean it isn't funny! Francisco succeeds largely through his energetic and enthusiastic demeanor. His random outbursts, funny noises, and sound effects are both silly and spot-on. Whether he is putting on voices, imitating a nightclub DJ, or pantomiming unorthodox sexual practices--he really puts his all into this performance. I had certainly seen some of the material (or slight variations thereof) before, but this is a winning introduction to those new to Francisco's manic charm. Not concerned for political correctness (apologies to the height challenged populace), he tackles the routine with aggressive glee. The opening section about a DJ mix is absolutely uproarious--it seems to go on forever, but he mines every last bit of ridiculous humor out of the subject before moving on. Other segments aren't quite as successful.

I was hooked on this guy ever since I saw him do his impression of Grand Theft Auto. I like very few standup comics because I think they all blend together for the most part. Pablo, however, is a shining beacon of originality. I never miss him when he comes to town (i've seen some of the material off this dvd in his live act and it's great). I highly recommend everyone check him out.
