Romesh burst onto the comedy circuit in 2010, gigging regularly at top venues all over the country. As well as turning in storming turns on a regular basis, he has also found time to reach the Latitude New Act Final 2010, The So You Think You're Funny? Final 2010 as well as coming runner up in The Amused Moose Laugh Off 2010.
In 2015 Romesh starred in his own show called 'Asian Provocateur' (BBC Three) where he travelled to Sri Lanka to learn about his parents' country. In 2016 the second series 'Mum's American Dream' was commissioned.
He has forged a fearsome reputation with a set that combines cutting one liners with an acerbic take on the world around him.
'Extraordinarily hilarious' (Three Weeks)
'Plenty to enjoy in his ultra sardonic set' (Chortle)
'His ability to write bitingly fresh gags marks him out from the crowd... Ranganathan's punchlines are sharper and funnier than many of his peers' (The Guardian).
Romesh Ranganathan was named in Ents24's top 5 hardest-working comedians of 2016.

Jo Brand tour dates
Kevin Bridges, Glasgow's 'young comedy prodigy' (The Guardian) reveals his innermost thoughts on a variety of topics, from his home-land Scotland and beyond.
His unique brand of social commentary, astute observations and sharp one-liners have proved a hit with audiences, leading to an extraordinary few years for Kevin. Scotland’s biggest export has been dubbed as 'brilliant' by one of his comedy idols, Billy Connolly, and has had an astonishing rise to success. Selling out over 100 tour dates on his first ever UK solo tour in 2010, his 2012 tour, Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues… smashed box office records selling a staggering 45,000 tickets on the first day. He went on to sell out an incredible nine-show run at the Glasgow SECC Arena.
His epic 136-date tour culminated in a sell out run throughout Australia. The DVD of the same name made it to number 5 in the charts for Christmas that year.
'Truthful, natural and hilarious' (Sunday Herald)
'Britain’s best stand up' (The Sun)
'It's his eye for details that has elevated him to a MUST-SEE act' (The Daily Mirror)..
