Moving Set

Broadly speaking, Pablo Francisco is a stand-up comedian, but that's somewhat misleading. The Tucson native's line of work doesn't seem to involve standing as much as it does flailing and writhing. And rarely does Mr. Francisco actually tell a joke. Instead, the 39-year-old weaves numerous characters and impersonations into a frenetic and sometimes cacophonic stream of consciousness that typically has the comic soaked in sweat mere minutes into his routine.
