Romesh Ranganathan – Rom Com (Phil McIntyre Entertainments by Arrangement with Lisa Thomas Management)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

The premise of Ranganathan’s misanthropic show is to expose what really happens after the credits roll at the end of a rom com. The topics he covered, such as parenthood, veganism and racism weren’t untrodden ground, but his sarcastic delivery managed to make me forget this for the most part and laugh… a lot. This cynical comic’s jaded stage-persona managed to make even the simplest jokes funny, and you had to giggle at his improvised interactions with audience members. If you’re looking to see an enthusiastic comedian who is high on life, then Ranganathan is not the man for you, but for a world-weary husband and father, talking about his general day-to-day annoyances, then buy your tickets now.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug, 6.50pm.
