The weather was Sunny. I wore long pants and shoes, though shorts and flips would have been fine..

Pablo was definitely on drugs and his openers were funnier than he was. He repeated his jokes way too much.

For the cost of a movie, we got live entertainment.
Two drink minimum, makes the comedian even funnier!
I'll go back to Cobb's through Goldstar again.
It's all general admission, and you can't get a bad seat!

The openers were great, laughed a lot. Didn't "get" Pablo Francisco's humor at all though. Also, seats were mediocre and 2 drink minimum was lame.... I hadn't finished my first drink when they came by for "last call" so was required to buy...continued

Description

He weaves together his arsenal of characters, spontaneous outbursts, and clever insights to create a stand-up show that more resembles an hour-long comedic jazz riff. He is an off-the-wall, animated character who points out the absurdities in an illogical, pop-culture obsessed world.

His unmatched take on all things pop culture has taken him into the ranks of the most popular touring comedians worldwide. Pablo’s enormous popularity continues to soar, driving his Myspace Comedy page into the top three most visited on the site. His outrageously funny material has hooked millions of viewers on his YouTube channel.

Pablo embarked on his fourth European tour last fall, and his international profile continues to grow. He sold out the renowned Milky Way in Amsterdam, and his show at the Troxy in London sold over 26,000 tickets on his third 16-city tour of Sweden. Concurrently, Pablo is building his new one-hour Comedy Central special while packing colleges and major concert venues across the country. Francisco recently contributed self-produced content to digital campaigns for Nokia, Absolut and Rhapsody. Pablo also performed at the Australia Comedy Festival this past spring.

It is not uncommon to sense the anticipation of Pablo’s audience as his fans await their favorite impressions, while being surprised by his unpredictable transformations. Those who experience Pablo’s show for the first time find themselves captivated by his hilarious dead on impressions. His unbelievable ability to physically morph himself into movie stars, singers, friends, family, and a multitude of nationalities give Pablo’s show a universal appeal. His drop-dead funny spoofing often leaves his audiences struggling to catch their breath which is the driving force behind his huge success. His rendition of the intensely melodramatic Spanish language soap operas on Telemundo and his narration of the action-movie preview with Arnold Schwarzenegger as a tortilla vendor bring screams of laughter coast to coast. This gifted performer continues to thrive on his creativity and the spontaneity of stand up comedy selling out concert venues, universities and comedy clubs alike. Pablo continually pushes the envelope, constantly refining new material and frighteningly accurate embodiments.

Pablo’s own critically acclaimed special on Comedy Central, entitled OUCH!, continues to stay on the network’s most requested list. DVDTALK calls OUCH! “truly original and funny”. His much anticipated follow-up Comedy Central special is due out in 2011. In addition to his Comedy Central specials, Pablo has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Comedy Central’s The Showbiz Show with David Spade and_ Mind of Mencia._ He has also been a cast member on the Fox Network’s sketch comedy show_ MADtv and TBS’s Frank TV, _and has appeared on Howard Stern’s radio show.
