I got to meet Pablo Francisco!!!
Let’s rewind. For those of you who may not know Pablo, he is a famous comedian. My brother Joe and I have been obsessed with him for years. We first discovered his “Mitsubishi Ecstacy” bit on YouTube and have been hooked ever since!
Joe and I have wanted to see him live forever, but he mostly tours in California. Well, a few months ago, Pete is looking in the newspaper and saw an advertisement that Pablo was performing at a local comedy club called The Stress Factory in New Brunswick. We literally walked over to the computer and ordered 3 tickets!
All day long I was sooo excited and was preparing for what I’d say in case I met Pablo…I didn’t want to act like a bumbling idiot! I had my line perfectly prepared, although doubtful I’d get to use it.
Upon arrival, my bro and I were amped!
After some Instagram pics, we ordered food to enjoy during the opening acts. I went with “Vinnie’s Panini” which was had chicken, avocado, apple slices, and pepper jack cheese. Pretty good.
Finally, Pablo took the stage.
He certainly lived up to our expectations and had us in hysterics for a good 45 minutes. He’s known for his voices, noises, and imitations and had plenty!
After the show, Pablo was hanging outside, which I thought was so cool. A line formed of people who wanted to meet him and luckily we got out there quick and were one of the firsts in line. I walked up to Pablo and said my line…
“Your Mitsubishi Ecstacy skit is my favorite of all time.” I wished it came out as smooth as I typed it, but I was starstruck and stumbled a little bit on the word Mitsubishi!
He laughed and replied, “A lot of that is based on true events.”
My bro bought one of his DVD’s and even got it signed by Pablo…so cool!
Now I can cross that one off the bucket list!
Have you ever met someone famous? Who was it and how did you act?
