Best Local Stand-Up Comic

Al Romas

You can’t rattle Al Romas. He has too much experience, too many decades performing comedy, too many jokes running through his brain. On stage he has the kind of casual demeanor that suggests you just pulled him from a poker game with his buddies to tell a few jokes. And when he’s done interviewing the audience and sharing some stories, he’ll probably light up a cigar and rejoin them — and you’ll wish he’d offer you a chair and deal you in.
