The Short Bio of Paco Romane or “How To Have Friends For Fun and Profit”
Paco Romane’s authentic, engaging, and unpredictable style has established him as an audience favorite. He is a comedian, writer, improviser, producer and actor currently residing in San Francisco and Los Angeles which makes him bi-polar! Get it? Cause of the north and south thing…Moving on…He has appeared on Comedy Central and many national commercials and films. He has made countless festival appearances including: San Francisco Sketchfest (2004-Present), Outside Lands Festival, Gulf Coast Comedy Festival, Comedy Day and LaughFest. He was twice voted “Best Comedian” in San Francisco by The SF Weekly and SF Bay Guardian.
His comedy show The Romane Event Comedy Show is one of SF’s longest running and highly lauded comedy shows. The Romane Event brings together the best of Bay Area comedians — from veterans, legends to up-and-comers — and national acts for a night of big laughs. He was also a long time company member of Killing My Lobster, San Francisco’s premier sketch comedy group.
Paco has written for The Gilbert Gottfried Roast and his comedy has been profiled on NBC Bay Area, NPR “Forum”, SF Examiner, SF Chronicle, SF Weekly, SF Bay Guardian, Time Out SF, 7×7, San Francisco Magazine, Spinning Platters and many others! His debut comedy album “Shaped Like A Thumb” and his documentary podcast Sup Doc are available on iTunes.
He has worked with many of the top names in comedy including: Robin Williams, Norm MacDonald, Todd Glass, Dana Gould, Scott Adsit, Hannibal Buress, Eric Andre, Margaret Cho, Arden Myrin, Bob Rubin, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kevin Pollack, Kevin Meaney, Janet Varney, Jeff B Davis, Ron Lynch, Laraine Newman, Rick Overton, Hal Sparks, Jake Johannsen, Nate Bargatze, Moshe Kasher, Bobby Slayton, Robert Hawkins, Will Durst, Maria Bamford…phew..name dropping can be exhausting. You can see him perform regularly at The SF Punch Line, The Sacramento Punch Line, Cobb’s Comedy Club and Rooster T Feathers. Paco likes to play a little b-ball on the weekends and he’ll probably order another round of wings. “Paco’s comedy is a mash-up of all things comedy – improv, sketch, stand up, you name it.” – SF Sketchfest.
