Due to Covid-19, Romesh Ranganathan’s tour THE CYNIC’S MIXTAPE was postponed, but all the dates have now been rescheduled.
Having started the tour in September 2019, it’s his most brutally honest show yet. It’s also his biggest to date, having sold-out venues in record time across the UK – including a phenomenal twelve nights at the Hammersmith Apollo.
Fresh from BAFTA-winning The Ranganation, The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan (also BAFTA-winning) and A League Of Their Own, Romesh is putting showbiz aside to deliver a carefully-curated selection of all the things he has found unacceptable 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.
Romesh’s cynicism has become his trademark, but since being nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Awards this deadpan humour has made him one of Britain’s most respected and popular comics. Now, though, the Asian Provocateur has returned to his stand-up roots for a while – there’s things he needs to point out, discuss and have a good moan about. Care to join him?
The last few years have been incredible for Romesh. Now a household name, he is best known for his BAFTA and RTS Award-winning series The Misadventures Of Romesh Ranganathan, his weekly topical show The Ranganation, and his Sky One sitcom The Reluctant Landlord. He’s travelled the globe with Rob Beckett in Rob & Romesh Vs, been a regular and host of A League Of Their Own, and starred in the show that first brought Romesh and his mum to the public consciousness, the BAFTA-nominated Asian Provocateur.
Romesh has even managed to squeeze in writing his autobiography Straight Outta Crawley: The Memoirs Of A Distinctly Average Human Being, which became a Sunday Times Bestseller. His second book, As Good as It Gets: Life Lessons from a Reluctant Adult, was released in October 2020.
2019 saw Romesh return to his stand-up roots, with him heading back out on the road with his biggest tour to date – The Cynic’s Mixtape – which sold out theatres in record time across the UK, including a phenomenal 12-nights at the Eventim Apollo. Wrapping up the year with a bang, Romesh joined Rob Beckett to host the prestigious Royal Variety Performance at the iconic London Palladium, entertaining the Royals and viewers at home with his signature dry wit.
Romesh embarked on his career in America in 2018 with the launch of his own series Just Another Immigrant on Showtime. His spell in America also saw him appear twice on James Corden’s Late Late Show and debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Romesh returned to America at the start of 2020, with a four-night sell-out run at SoHo Playhouse in New York.
Amongst all of this, he still finds time to record his award-winning podcast Hip Hop Saved My Life, which has welcomed stars including Kano, Louis Theroux, Mark Ronson, DJ Premier, Clara Amfo, Little Simz and Jamie Redknapp.
It’s non-stop for one of the hardest-working comedians in the game!
Romesh Ranganathan will be appearing at Ipswich Corn Exchange on Tuesday 4 January 2022 as part of his The Cynic’s Mixtape – UK Tour 2019-22.
