Pablo Francisco is truly a man of a thousand voices. His huge repertoire of impressions and characters never fails to get a laugh. Of course, the comedian nails the usual list of suspects: he does a good Keanu Reeves, Jackie Chan and our beloved Governator—but he’s not just a mouthpiece spouting off pop-culture references (though he does love pointing out the absurdities of Hollywood and a celebrity-obsessed culture). Francisco is a witty and energetic presence on stage. His popularity on the internet is a testament to that—his comedian’s page on Myspace is one of the most visited in that category, and his videos on Youtube have been viewed millions of times. Expect the line for his show at the Brea Improv to stretch all the way to the 57 Freeway.
