Romesh Ranganathan: Hustle

Event Date: 9, 10 & 11 May 2024

The incredibly funny tongue-in-cheek comedian from Crawley plays 3 dates at the Bournemouth International Centre in May 2024.

Known for his trademark cynicism, Romesh Ranganathan is one of the UK’s most popular TV presenters and comics. He was born in West Sussex in 1978 as Jonathan Romesh Ranganathan and took an unusual route to stardom – via rapping and teaching.

After delivering his first ever stand-up set at the age of nine at a holiday camp talent competition, Ranganthan spent his teen years focused on becoming a hip hop artist with the moniker “Ranga”. Ultimately, he became a maths teacher and worked for many years at a school in Crawley, where he met his wife Leesa, who taught drama. They married in 2009 and around that time, Ranganathan found his way back to comedy by doing gigs in pubs as a hobby.

When he made his Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut with Rom Com in 2013, he was nominated for Best Newcomer at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards. Ranganathan returned in 2014 with Rom Wasn’t Built In A Day and received another nomination for the Best Show award.

Ranganathan’s deadpan humour quickly won him a following throughout the country. According to The Times, he had “the natural swagger of a comedian who knows how to dominate a room”.

After a sell-out tour in 2022, Romesh is back with a brand-new show examining the human condition. Are people inherently good? Is charity always a positive thing? Is hustling the key to success? Or is all this a load of rubbish we've made up to keep people working hard for no reason?
