Straight outta Crawley : memoirs of a distinctly average human being

Ranganathan, Romesh, 1978-2019
Books, Manuscripts
'Straight Outta Crawley' is the hilarious and irreverent autobiography from comedian Romesh Ranganathan. At the age of nine, Romesh Ranganathan delivered his first ever stand-up set at a Pontin's holiday camp talent competition, smashing the 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.
