Pablo Francisco

You could say Pablo Francisco is a sound man. The comedian buzzes, zings, rings, thumps, toots, hoots and hollers his way through a vault of pop culture musings. In a style akin to Michael Winslow’s, Francisco utilizes his talent for mimicry to pose questions like, “Could the movie voice-over guy sell Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Little Tortilla Boy?” This query comes complete with car crashes, explosions and, of course, the Governator. The Latino also jokes close to home by pondering why men always cry in telenovelas and whether all Spanish radio deejays are actually vampires. “Hace mucho trafico esta mañana…mwahahaha,” he says and then pretends to cover himself in a cloak. See what other situations Francisco sounds out at 8 p.m. today, 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 7:30 p.m. Sunday. The Improv, 7620 Katy Freeway.
