the FunnyBone in Newport, KY is excited to welcome comedian Pablo Francisco. Pablo is one of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. The premiere of his highly anticipated one hour comedy special “They Put It Out There” made its debut on Comedy Central. His newest special was taped at the Margaret A. Webb Theater in Santa Ana, CA. and follows the enormous success of Pablo’s last stand-up special, “Ouch!” which continues to stay on the networks most requested list. The DVD “They Put It Out There” made its nationwide release shortly after its TV air date. Pablo once again hits his mark, weaving together his one of a kind arsenal of characters, spontaneous outbursts, spot on impressions and clever insights to create a stand-up show that more resembles an hour-long comedic jazz riff. “They Put It Out There” is an entertaining and off-the-wall performance that delivers the laughs and points out the hilarious absurdities in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world.
Pablo recently returned from his third tour of Australia with stops in five cities and sold out shows in Melbourne and Sydney. Previous to that, Francisco had his second visit to the South African Comedy Festival. Francisco’s amazing global appeal catapulted him to rock star status selling out the world renowned Milky Way in Amsterdam. His phenomenal performance at the Troxy in London, sold over 26,000 tickets during his third 16 city tour of Sweden. Francisco’s international profile continues to soar as his anxious European fans await his return for yet another multi-country tour slated for next year.
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 gives Pablo’s show a universal charm. His drop-dead funny spoofing often leaves his audiences struggling to catch their breath which is the driving force behind his huge success.
Pablo’s astounding popularity is not limited to the stage. His outrageously funny material and pervasive internet presence has captivated over 10 million YouTube viewers around the world and placed his MySpace comedy page in the Top 3 with 1 million plus video views. Francisco’s worldwide fan base continues to grow with over 111,655 Facebook fans and 13,893 Twitter followers to date.
In addition to his Comedy Central specials & DVD’s “They Put It Out There”, “Ouch” & “Bit and Pieces”, 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.
