a.k.a. Pablo is a sitcom that aired on ABC.

Produced by Norman Lear, it focuses on struggling Hispanic stand-up comic Paul Rivera and his large Mexican American family, who still called him by his given name Pablo. While they supported his career and longed for his success, his traditionalist parents were offended by the ethnic humor he incorporated into his act and urged him to be more respectful of his heritage. Rounding out the boisterous family were his sister Lucia and know-it-all brother-in-law Hector and their five children, his "stuffed shirt" brother Manuel and flirty sister-in-law Carmen and their two children, and his very-anxious-to-wed spinster sister Sylvia. José was Paul/Pablo's slick but inexperienced agent.
