Paco Romane is an award-winning and critically acclaimed stand up comedian (voted “Best Comedian” in the San Francisco Weekly and San Francisco Bay Guardian), actor, writer, and director. He has established himself as a favorite new comedian with his energetic, self-deprecating style. In a recent interview with KQED Arts, journalist Jonathan Curiel added, “This SF comedian keeps audiences riveted and coming back for more with live shows and TV gigs”.
Paco recently appeared on Comedy Central’s “Drunk History.”
Bookers have called Romane, “a favorite because he brings energy, improv and great observations into his act!” NPR recently named Paco Romane “an up-and-coming” comedian and NBC Bay Area said, “7 years of success have kept Paco Romane at the top of the Bay Area comedy scene.” Recently he was invited to talk about sketch comedy on Michael Krasny’s Forum on NPR and was given the rare opportunity to perform live on the air. He is also a long time company member of Killing My Lobster, the Bay Area’s premier Sketch Comedy group.
For the last eight years Paco has also produced the critically acclaimed Romane Event Comedy Show.
