OFFICIAL BIO:

Fans worldwide flock to Pablo shows to experience some of the funniest comedy ever unleashed. Pablo hits his mark every time, 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. Pablo's show 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 is one of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. His two Comedy Central specials, "They Put It Out There" and "Ouch," continue to stay on the network’s most-requested list.

Pablo's worldwide appeal is evident in his past three Australian tours, where he 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 continued to soar as his universal fans welcomed him for yet another multi-country tour this past fall with staggering excitement.

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. Francisco's worldwide fan base continues to grow with over 137,000 Facebook fans and thousands of Twitter followers.
