Paco Romane is an award-winning stand up comedian (voted “Best Comedian” in the San Francisco Weekly 2012 and San Francisco Bay Guardian 2005), actor, writer, and director. He has established himself as one of the funniest new comedians on the comedy scene and his energetic, self-deprecating comedic style is a hit with audiences across the country. He is also a long time company member of Killing My Lobster, the Bay Area’s premier Sketch Comedy group.
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 comedy on NPR’s Forum and was given the rare opportunity to perform live on the air.
Paco Romane produces The Romane Event Comedy Show, a beloved San Francisco institution that has long been a “must perform” show for the Bay Area’s top comedians and a must-see for comedy fans. For the last seven years Paco has brought the best in indie comedy to San Francisco in an “anything goes and probably will” environment. This monthly show, at The Make-Out Room in San Francisco’s Mission District has also garnered many great reviews (for too many to list completely) but here are a few: NPR called it “highly recommended”, The Onion declared it “hilarious”, The SF Weekly applauded: “Seven years later, The Romane Event still gives local funny people the microphone each month, a stay that is unheard of in the San Francisco comedy scene and an achievement in the general nightlife community as well.”
