Outside Lands 2016! The Romane Event with Paco Romane Friday August 5th!
The Romane Event Comedy Show (est. 2005) is featuring in this years Outside Lands Music Festival! One of San Francisco’s longest-running 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.
Host Paco Romane oversees the fun, and for this Outside Lands edition he’ll be joined by special guest Moshe Kasher (Conan, Fallon, Chelsea Lately). Plus I have my hilarious friends Josh Androsky (Comedy Central, Vice), Clare O’Kane (Viceland), Krista Fatka (SF Sketchfest) David Roth (Destiny’s Mom Comedy), David Gborie (Comedy Central), Spencer Devine (SF Sketchfest), Jane Harrison (SF Sketchfest) and Casey Ley! This comedy institution will leave you in stitches, so come out and enjoy a hilarious show that’s been praised by The Onion and the San Francisco Chronicle.
PACO ROMANE has quickly established himself as a favorite with audiences due to his energetic, self-deprecating style. Onstage he uses his quick wit to spin just about any live moment and into his act. His comedy has been described as “authentic” and “engaging” and bookers have said “to call Paco an original is not an exaggeration” and “Paco’s comedy is a mash up of all things funny – stand up, sketch, improv…you name it” while political satirist Will Durst claimed “Paco Romane is one of the finest and funniest comedians working today” and the legendary comedian Michael Pritchard added “collaborative, creative to the genius level, and a trigger on stage, Paco is a true talent.” He can be seen quickly on Comedy Central’s Drunk History and was twice voted Best Comedian in San Francisco by the SF Weekly and SF Bay Guardian. A long time company member of SF’s premier sketch comedy group Killing My Lobster he wrote, acted, directed, and produced many of their sold-out performances. Paco also produced and hosted one of SF’s longest running comedy shows The Romane Event. In addition to being a comedian Paco is also a writer and actor and has appeared in numerous national commercials and films and is a sought after voice-over actor. He has worked with Robin Williams, Norm MacDonald, Jake Johannsen, Nate Bargatze, Moshe Kasher and has performed in many comedy festivals. He’s a regular at The SF Punch Line, The Sacramento Punch Line, Cobb’s Comedy Club and Rooster T Feathers. He recently recorded his debut comedy album Shaped Like A Thumb and is the co-host of the comedy/documentary podcast Sup Doc.
Thanks to SF Sketchfest for co-producing this and a lot of great comedy in this years Outside Lands!
