About the Actor
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 TVs Latino Laugh Festival: The Show and was a Mad TV cast member. He has also appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, HBOs Loco Slam, Showtimes 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.

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.
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!
