“The Romanians Are Here” is a stand-up comedy show featuring three top Romanian comedians, each with their own comedic style: one anti-establishment comedian, one ‘one-liners’ comedian and one observational-absurdist comedian. All of them are regulars on Comedy Central Extra. They are as dark, slick & dangerous as an arrow in the night! Though far, far funnier.

The show explores the lighter side of current immigration issues and stories (arguably one of the most heated topics in Britain these days) from a rather unique perspective - that of three ‘fellow countrymen’ of one of the most visible migrant groups in British media in the past years. The scope of the production does expand, of course, to any and all migrant groups, in a series of quips that are almost politically correct…
But it does not stop there, the three comedians also talk about their personal lives, relationships, current events and sex.

Toma Alexandru won the King Gong contest at The Comedy Store in London in 2010, competing against 29 other comedians and also taped two Comedy Central Extra specials in English.

Radu Isac taped one Comedy Central Extra special, showcased at the Comedy International Conference in the UK, and won a Roast Battle at the Hollywood Comedy Store. He also performed in over 200 gigs across the US.
"He nicely treads the line between weird and relatable" - chortle.co.uk

Sergiu Floroaia taped four Comedy Central Extra stand-up specials (two in English and two in Romanian), won Gene Perret’s (Bob Hope’s head writer) “Words To Live By” Joke Writing Contest and opened for Eddie Griffin.
"Sergiu Floroaia tells great jokes." - Joe Toplyn (head writer for David Letterman and Jay Leno)

Toma, Radu and Sergiu have been doing stand-up comedy for 10 years in Romania, and, more recently, all across the world (including Bucharest, Sofia, Budapest, London, Edinburgh, New York, Washington).
