Paco Romane is a San Francisco based actor, writer, filmmaker, comedian, multi-instrumentalist, and a member of the award winning, sketch comedy group, Killing My Lobster. He has worked with some of the biggest names in comedy including: Robin Williams, Will Durst, Jake Johannsen, Robert Hawkins, Dana Carvey, Rick Overton, and many, many others. His production company, FreeDirt Media, produces comedy videos, live events, radio shows, and musical mayhem. Paco was voted "Best Comedian" in the SF Weekly and SF Bay Guardian's "Best Of The Bay" and was runner up for Best Comedian in the SF Weekly in 2007, 2008.


BEN FELDMAN is a standup comedian and comedy writer based in San Francisco (originally from the East Coast) who performs regularly at the Bay Area's top comedy clubs, including the SF Punchline, Cobb's Comedy Club, and Rooster T. Feathers, as well as shows at clubs and other venues throughout California and beyond. Ben’s acerbic wit is provocative yet playful, delivered with glints of absurdity as he teeters back and forth along the thick line between aggression and charm. In other words, he’s a heavily sarcastic but likeable smart ass.

JOE GORMAN is a fast-rising star in the San Francisco comedy scene.He is seen frequently at San Franciso’s Punchline, Cobb’s Comedy Club, and the San Jose Improv. Most recently he was a part of San Francisco Sketchfest 2012.

Hailing out of Altadena, Ca, JABARI DAVIS has taken the San Francisco Comedy community by storm with humor that combines down and dirty street smarts with thought provoking intellect. With a style that interweaves true-life failures backed by undeniable logic, his comedic dialogue transcends not only cultural barriers, but social classes as well.

HOST MARY-ALICE MCNAB is a fresh face in the Bay Area comedy scene but a quickly rising personality. Her natural charisma and stage presence have set her apart from the ranks. Debuting on stage at the Purple Onion (remember Phyllis Diller?) and comfortably moving into visits at Cobb's Comedy Club, Mary-Alice leaves a mark in the memory. A true performer, when she takes the stage every part of her is engaged in communicating the jokes: voice, face, body, movement. Her story-telling style of humor is punctuated with laugh lines at each bend in the road and audiences are taken on a journey of delight. Mary-Alice is a bright light and a breath of fresh air - it will be a pleasure to see this career lift-off.   



Dj Specific spins tunes that are simultaneously sweaty, pumping, fun and elastic. He not only has great taste in music but also a keen wit and works wonders in the kitchen. He is at every Romane Event playing his tunes before, during and after the show.
