Notes:
At the age of 9, Romesh Ranganathan delivered his first ever stand-up set at a Pontin's holiday camp talent competition, smashing the only other competitor, a young girl playing the kazoo. The gig went so well that Romesh retired his comic genius for 22 years, hiding behind the guise of a maths teacher, before finally revealing himself again (no, not like that) at the tender age of 31. In 2010, Ranganathan staged his epic comeback gig to an almost silent room, and has since gone on to earn his place as the most in-demand overweight vegan Sri Lankan comedian in Britain. Now, for the first time, he tells the full story of how he got here.

Reviews
As a group we were not impressed with this seeming autobiographic work. We found it very unfunny and self deprecating in the extreme. Being from Crawley we felt we might have something in common with Romesh's memories of our town but there was very few. We gave it a rating of 4.
