Romesh Ranganathan

A British stand-up comedian and actor of Sri Lankan descent, an ex Maths teacher with misanthropic tendencies (and a distinctly grumpy disposition).

A British stand-up comedian and actor of Sri Lankan descent.

He was nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

He has made multiple appearances on comedy panel shows and in 2016, he co-presented It’s Not Rocket Science, alongside Rachel Riley and Ben Miller.

He is also regular panelist on Play to the Whistle and The Apprentice: You’re Fired!.

Since his debut in 2010, which earned him a finalist spot in Latitude’s new act competition, Romesh Ranganathan has quickly made a name for himself as one of Britain’s best comedians – he won the prestigious Leicester Mercury New Act Award 2013, and his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival debut was nominated for the coveted Best Newcomer Award 2013.

The following year he was nominated for best show at the 2014 Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards.

It’s hard to believe he’s a relative newcomer to stand-up – having spent the first part of his career as a teacher.

From playing comedy clubs all over the country Ranganathan’s profile grew as did the respect from his peers, which resulted in him writing for numerous shows and supporting the likes of Seann Walsh, Bill Burr and one of his comedy heroes Ricky Gervais.

Hire Romesh Ranganathan and you’re getting a remarkably self-assured performer, albeit with misanthropic tendencies (and a distinctly grumpy disposition).

Romesh can currently be seen on the hit BBC series Absolute.
