Straight Outta Crawley: Memoirs of a Distinctly Average Human Being

by Romesh Ranganathan
£20.00   hardback  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2018)

Straight Outta Crawley: Memoirs of a Distinctly Average Human Being by Romesh Ranganathan THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER
 
Straight Outta Crawley is the hilarious and irreverent autobiography from comedian Romesh Ranganathan.
 
At the age of 9, 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 twenty-two 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. From the delights of Sri Lankan hospitality to his struggles as a child, teacher and now parent, to his adolescent flirtation with a rap career and his attempts to make it in comedy, Straight Outta Crawley is Ranganathan's hilarious and irreverent autobiography.
