Known for his smooth-as-molasses delivery and occasionally giddy demeanor, this former “Saturday Night Live” cast member has appeared in a handful of films (“The Comebacks,” “Mad Money”) and TV shows (“Nick Swardson’s Pretend Time” on Comedy Central) since leaving the seminal New York sketch comedy show that launched him.
We catch up with Pablo Francisco, who, after getting his start in improv in Tuscon, Francisco landed a gig on Fox’s “MadTV,” which helped him hone his arsenal of vocal impressions, including Aaron Neville, Casey Kasem, Gary Busey, Chris Rock, Christopher Walken and, most famously, Don LaFontaine (a.k.a. the king of movie voiceovers).
