Comedic Superstar Pablo Francisco to Perform at The Stage
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – April 20, 2017

Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, welcomes world-renowned stand-up comedian Pablo Francisco to The Stage on Thursday, April 27, and Friday, April 28. Francisco will perform two shows each night with the first beginning at 7 p.m. and the second at 9:30 p.m.

Although he had always had a flair for comedy growing up, Pablo Francisco's career in comedy began in Tempe, Ariz., where he performed improv. Eventually, with some encouragement from his former college roommate, Jamie Foxx, Francisco joined the cast of Mad TV in the late '90s and got his big break in 2000, starring in his own half-hour stand-up special on Comedy Central. That earned him a spot as one of "The Three Amigos," touring alongside fellow comedians Carlos Mencia and Freddy Soto. Today, with nearly two decades of experience on stage, Francisco entertains audiences with a high-energy blend of pop culture riffs, celebrity impressions, vibrant characters and spontaneous outbursts. Seamlessly transitioning from character to character, he is known for his impressions of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Kermit the Frog and his trademark character, Don LaFontaine—the booming "voiceover master" of movie trailers. Francisco has performed on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," as well as Comedy Central's "The Showbiz Show with David Spade" and "Mind of Mencia," and continues to tour throughout the globe.

Tickets to Pablo Francisco's performances at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino range between $15 and $35 and can be purchased online at www.thestageatthestar.com. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
