In stand-up comedy, your career can take off on the success of a single bit. In the case of Pablo Francisco, he made a name for himself with his signature impression of the late movie-trailer voice-over master, Don LaFontaine. Injecting the gravelly persona into otherwise random pop-culture references, Francisco has established himself as a hilarious professional of sound effects, characters and vocal impersonations, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Keanu Reeves, Droopy Dog, R2-D2 and Kermit the Frog. With plenty of animated beat boxing and material poking fun at Aaron Neville's singing voice, Francisco is set to perform at the Funny Bone beginning March 12 at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., continuing through March 14. $20.
