Roman Danylo Comedy Improv Experience
The rise of The Roman Empire began in Calgary back in the late 1980’s where Roman Danylo worked for several local comedy clubs, The Loose Moose Theatre, Theatre Calgary, and various CBC Radio Dramas.

Roman Danylo Comedy Style
Roman Danylo uses his comedy improv skills to team-build, brain storm, and break the ice. Roman gathers info about whichever company he is working for and trades that inside information for a currency usually foreign to the corporate world’s big laughs. His message is team building and thinking outside the box and the result is tons of fun.
Roman Danylos Personality
When Roman was very young he was heard to say, “When I grow up I want to be a giant and step on people!” In his teen years he played a lot of sports and worked out that aggression. Today, back home, Roman enjoys water sports, raisins, and some humans.

“I just wanted to let you know that the conference was a big success and that Roman was outstanding! The way he incorporated the information we had given him on the company and various people within the company into the evening and his improv routines was nothing short of amazing. The feedback from the gala was that it was without a doubt, the best we have ever done and Roman was a big part of that.”J
