The last two years have been incredible for Ranganathan with his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show, Rom Wasn’t Built In A Day, being nominated for the prestigious Edinburgh Fosters Best Show Award in August 2014. This was only 12 months after his festival debut Rom Com was nominated for the coveted Best Newcomer Award 2013.
Romesh has come a long way since winning the Leicester Mercury New Act Award 2013. These achievements culminated in his debut appearance on BBC2’s Mock the Week, BBC1’s Live at the Apollo, Channel 4’s, 8 Out of 10 Cats: Cats Does Countdown, ITV1’s Sunday Night At The Palladium, BBC3’s Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live 2013, a regular slot on Channel 4’s weekly topical show Stand Up for the Week, hosting two series of BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Newsjack as well as appearances on BBC Radio 4’s News Quiz and the long-running and beloved The Now Show.
From playing comedy clubs all over the country, Ranganathan’s profile has grown, as has the respect from his peers, which has resulted in him writing for numerous shows and supporting the likes of Seann Walsh, Bill Burr, Paul Chowdhry and one of his comedy heroes, Ricky Gervais.
Romesh has also been seen acting in several hit sitcoms including Jo Brand’s Damned for Sky Playhouse, BBC 2’s House Of Fools and BBC 3’s Josh with more in the pipeline to be filmed in the coming months, including Comedy Central’s Drunk History.
