Pablo Francisco, a bag of impersonations and sound effects.

February 14, 2007 at 5:56 am (Comedy Central Presents)

My last post about Dane Cook may have been a little too over the top for a few of the more serious readers out there and I apologize for not giving that post more thought than a Dane Cook bash-fest; however, that doesn’t mean I will be withdrawing any of my previous statements made towards him. Now, on with my next review (which will hopefully be more thoughtful than my last).

Pablo Francisco! Now this is someone who truly is a synthesizer walking among men. He has mastered every sound effect through his large vocal spectrum; although, some could say that he takes advantage of this skill too much. His technique of making his audience laugh is a little overdone because it’s all I’ve ever heard him do. I don’t want to make more blind accusations since this is the only stand-up I’ve seen of him, but Francisco seems to be quite the one-trick pony. His latina, surfer, and celebrity voices and sound effects are the essence of his entire act and I’m not entirely sure how much he could accomplish without this talent, but then again it’s his claim to fame and whatever he’s doing works and it works great.

Brian Regan, fun for the whole family.

It’s obvious why so many people love this guy. He has a very clean, observational sense of humor which may sometimes be self-deprecating. Regan will abstain from any off-color jokes, sexual references, or vulgar language. Even with his family-oriented humor, his visual representations and facial expressions are a tremendous aid in keeping the audience in stitches.

Just like Gaffigan, Regan loves to talk a lot about food and overeating. He doesn’t need to rely on dropping F-bombs to get his crowd cheering and laughing. Instead, he counter-acts this crutch with an intelligent outlook on common daily tasks that all of us interact with constantly.
