Pablo Francisco

By David Gavri

You know him as the ‘Little Tortilla Boy’, and the ‘Movie Preview Guy’—and Kermit the Frog—and Sylvestor Stallone—and Arnold Schwarzenegger—and Scarface’s Tony Montana—and so much more! Pablo Francisco is an American stand up comedian whose popularity spans all over the globe. Not only does he perform sold out shows in the United States, but he’s also sold out world renowned venues, such as the Milky Way in Amsterdam and the Troxy in London.

Introduced to the world in 2000 with his half-hour special on Comedy Central, Pablo then toured as one of The Three Amigos alongside Freddy Soto and Carlos Mencia. Pablo later released his first special, Bits and Pieces: Live From Orange County. He then followed up with Ouch! Live From San Jose, and most recently They Put It Out There. Pablo’s unique ability to point out the world’s absurdities with clever insight while weaving together his off-the-wall arsenal of animated characters has kept audiences on their feet and coming back for more. We’ve been so lucky to talk with Pablo about comedy, and about his early days, his struggles, the comedy business, random TV show ideas, and his hilarious personal stories. Pablo is in town this Valentine’s weekend right here at the Houston Improv. You don’t wanna miss it! Continue reading
