Legendary comedian Freddie Roman has been performing on stage since he was a teenager in the Catskills. Beginning his studies in acting at NYU, Roman eventually began touring various theaters in the northeast. The comedian impressed the late, famous Totie Fields one night with his sharp and witty, and was invited to join Fields on her national tour. This brought Roman into the limelight, and it wasn’t long until Freddie Roman became one of the greatest comics of all time. Now, after over half a century working in comedy, Freddie Roman is Dean of the New York Friars Club, the oldest and most influential brotherhood in show business. In addition to stand-up, Roman has starred in major motion pictures as well as Comedy Central television specials.
