Comedian Romesh Ranganathan is back with a brand new show, The Cynic's Mixtape. He'll be heading on the road beginning in September 2019 to reveal what he has learned since his last tour, including why trying to save the environment is a scam, why none of us are truly free and his suspicion that his wife is using gluten intolerance to avoid sleeping with him.
One of the UK’s most popular comics, Romesh’s cynicism has become his trademark. Fresh from The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan, A League of Their Own and Judge Romesh, he’s putting show business aside to return to his stand-up roots.
Since being nominated for Best Newcomer and then Best Show Award at the 2013 and 2014 Edinburgh Comedy Awards, respectively, Romesh’s deadpan humour has won him a loyal following throughout the country. According to The Times, “he has the natural swagger of a comedian who knows how to dominate a room”.
In his early 30s, Romesh ditched his career as a maths teacher to begin life on the road as a comedian. After having established himself on the stand-up circuit, TV opportunities began to roll in. Romesh appeared on the BBC series Asian Provocateur, which was nominated for a BAFTA. Other shows include Just Another Immigrant, Rob & Romesh Meet and The Reluctant Landlord.
Romesh has recently added author to his lengthy list of professional credits. He penned an autobiography called Straight Outta Crawley (Memoirs of a Distinctly Average Human Being) that was released in October 2018. In it he shares details of his first “gig” at Pontins at the age of 9 and his fumblings as a wannabe rapper, through to his fame and family-making in the years that followed.
