‘He has the natural swagger of a comedian who knows how to dominate a room’
The last few years have been incredible for Romesh; now a household name, he is best known for his BAFTA and RTS Award-winning series The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan, his weekly topical show Ranganation and his Sky One sitcom The Reluctant Landlord. He’s travelled the globe with Rob Beckett in Rob & Romesh Vs, been a regular and host of A League Of Their Own and starred in the show that first brought Romesh and his mum to the public consciousness, the BAFTA nominated Asian Provocateur.
Romesh has even managed to squeeze in writing his autobiography Straight Outta Crawley: The Memoirs Of A Distinctly Average Human Being which became a Sunday Times Bestseller. His second book As Good as It Gets: Life Lessons from a Reluctant Adult is out now.
2019 saw Romesh return to his stand-up roots with him heading back out on tour with his biggest tour to date The Cynic’s Mixtape which has sold out theatres in record time across the UK, including a phenomenal 12 nights at the Eventim Apollo. Wrapping up the year with a bang, Romesh joined Rob Beckett to host the prestigious Royal Variety Performance at the iconic London Palladium, entertaining the Royals and viewers at home with his signature dry wit.
Romesh embarked on his career in America in 2018 with the launch of his own series Just Another Immigrant on Showtime. His time in America also saw him appear twice on James Corden’s Late Late Show and debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Romesh returned to America at the start of 2020 with a four-night sell-out run at SoHo Playhouse in New York.
Amongst all of this, he still finds time to record his award-winning podcast Hip Hop Saved My Life which has welcomed stars including Kano, Louis Theroux, Mark Ronson, DJ Premier, Clara Amfo, Little Simz and Jamie Redknapp.
It’s non-stop for one of the hardest working comedians in the game!
