What to Expect
Every so often a character surfaces that seems to touch the hearts of viewers, and much as Charlie Chaplin and Red Skelton made their audiences love them, so today is a comic named Frankie Pace affecting people. To Frankie Pace the world is not only a stage--it’s a playground. It is rare that a comedian has this much fun making others have fun.
Frankie Pace’s humor tends to be silly, but it’s infectious, reflecting his enjoyment of his comedic art. Frankie's relaxed, and works the crowd with confidence. His haphazard approach is refreshing and it accentuates both his simple gags and his friendly personality.
To attempt to define Frankie Pace is disastrous. A standup comic he is the direct antithesis of everything a stand up comic is supposed to be. We can label him an impressionist, but that’s too easy. He does impressions, but they are impressions of people and things no one else in his right mind would think of doing. Who goes around imitating a CB radio channel, a lawn sprinkler or the first astronaut to sneeze during a space walk?
At one point Pace suddenly and mysteriously begins to radiate a whiff of Chaplin. He is sad and we are laughing. It is an extraordinary piece of business, we are laughing with tears in our eyes, identifying with every one of his characters and reveling in the total enjoyment of his set.
