Motor Mouth

If those rumors we keep hearing about Hollywood’s intent to remake the raunchy ‘80s comedy Police Academy ever prove true, we’ve got someone who’d be perfect to star in the flick: Pablo Francisco. The hilarious impressionist and sound effects-spewing comedian would be a natural fit for the onomatopoeia-bending role of Cadet Larvell Jones.

In fact, the Tucson-born comic could probably carry a whole movie as a one-man production, considering his talent for ridiculously detailed storytelling: Just ask Jay Leno and Howard Stern, who’ve both featured the 37-year-old on their respective shows.

Until casting agents give him a call, however, Francisco will use his gags for gigs at stand up clubs around the country, including a four-night appearance at Stand Up Live, 50 West Jefferson Street.
