He has appeared on Comedy Central, NBC, Drunk History, HBO, Nickelodeon, NPR, and Funny or Die. His comedy style was once described as — loosey-goosey, energy, improv, and rifftastic. Known as a versatile mash-up of everything comedic, Romane is a natural entertainer and storyteller who is always ready to riff on bad breakups or his everyman physique and weave hilarious hard-to-believe true stories about his movie-like life with fast and furious crowd work. The San Francisco Chronicle and Spinning Platters described him as “smart, silly, fast, and funny” as “one of the greatest Bay Area comedians.” In a recent interview, NPR said, “Paco is hilarious and at the top of the comedy scene.” He is a regular performer in SF Sketchfest and Outside Lands. He has shared the stage with comedy legends like Robin Williams, Norm MacDonald, Ali Wong, Nate Bargatze, and many more. You can catch Paco headlining clubs and comedy festivals around the nation.
