Side Splitters Comedy Club in Tampa, FL is proud to host AL ROMAS December 22 - 23, 26. FREE ADMISSION when you bring in an unwrapped toy.
Al began his career in comedy in the mid 1980s, cutting his teeth in the open-mic circuit of Tidewater Virginia. Al's performances in Norfolk bars and Virginia Beach clubs before audiences of rowdy college students, rowdier sailors, and sunburned tourists allowed him to hone his act, and he soon graduated to paid gigs throughout the region. Within a few short years of his start as an anonymous open-miker with a day job, Al found himself living in New York, working full-time as a standup comic and logging tens of thousands of miles while working clubs and colleges up and down the East Coast. Al's hilarious material and his natural rapport with his audiences also got him gigs opening for some of the biggest names in comedy during the late 80s/early 90s, names such as Jerry Seinfeld and Dennis Miller.
Al is a firmly established headliner who has delighted audiences in an impressive list of venues ranging from Radio City Music Hall for ESPN's Espy Awards to the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines to Las Vegas, with countless gigs in between all over the country. Al also has numerous television appearances under his belt, including VH-1's "Standup Spotlight" A&E's "Evening at the Improv" and Comedy Central's "Short Attention Span Theater."
Al's material covers a broad range of topics, from marriage and divorce (he's done both), to growing up in 1970's suburban Long Island (think "The Brady Bunch" meets "The Ice Storm"), and much, much more
