    ROMESH RANGANATHAN TO WRITE HIS FIRST BOOK

    Off The Kerb are delighted to announced that Romesh Ranganathan will be writing his first book for Transworld.

    A former maths teacher, Ranganathan made his comedy circuit debut in 2010 and has quickly established himself as one of British comedy's brightest stars. Currently on the road with a 133-date tour, Irrational, which runs until December, Ranganathan is also a regular guest on multiple TV and radio shows, a panellist on Play to the Whistle and The Apprentice: You’re Fired!, and co-presenter of ITV’s science show It’s Not Rocket Science, alongside Ben Miller and Rachel Riley.

    His 2015 BBC TV series, Asian Provocateur, in which Ranganathan travelled to Sri Lanka to explore his ancestral heritage has just been re-commissioned, and currently sees Ranganathan nominated for a BAFTA for Best Entertainment Performance.

    Henry Vines at Transworld said: ‘Romesh is a fantastic entertainer and a natural storyteller. We are all thrilled to be publishing his smart, insightful and extremely funny memoir, which captures all of the warmth and humour of his stand-up and the hugely entertaining family dynamics that made Asian Provocateur such a hit.’

    Romesh said: 'I am absolutely delighted to be writing this book. I love the team at Transworld, and I hope to complete the project before my inevitable profile decline and humiliating return to teaching.'

    The book’s publication date will be announced in due course.

  • RUSSELL KANE’S STUPID MAN, SMART PHONE BEGINS SUNDAY 1ST MAY ON BBC THREE

    RUSSELL KANE’S STUPID MAN, SMART PHONE BEGINS SUNDAY 1ST MAY ON BBC THREE

    stupid-man-smart-phone-large

    When we need to put up shelves most of us turn to the how-tos of the internet for a helping hand. Comedian Russell Kane is taking this one step further. He's convinced that even though he has no survival training or knowledge of the local language or customs, he's sure he can be dropped anywhere in the world, and can survive with only his mobile phone for help.

    Each episode is a new adventure where he will take with him a different internet star with access to millions of followers. From the Costa Rican jungle with Conor Maynard, to the Arctic Circle with Rose and Rosie, or the Northern Sahara with Arron Crascall, Russell is on a completely different mission in every single episode. On offer for the viewer is loads of information about how to survive in these extreme locations, from the comfort of the sofa.

    Unprepared, under-skilled and badly advised, can Russell and his companions survive with just their mobile?

    This is Bear Grylls without the skills, this is Stupid Man, Smart Phone.

  • BBC THREE SENDS ROMESH RANGANATHAN ON AN INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE WITH HIS MUM FOR ASIAN PROVOCATEUR SERIES TWO

    BBC THREE SENDS ROMESH RANGANATHAN ON AN INTERNATIONAL ADVENTURE WITH HIS MUM FOR ASIAN PROVOCATEUR SERIES TWO

    Fresh from his nomination for Best Entertainment Performance at the forthcoming Bafta Television Awards, Romesh Ranganathan will return to BBC Three for more Asian Provocateur after a successful first series saw him return to his motherland of Sri Lanka at the behest of this mother Shanthi. 

    It took Shanthi twenty years to convince Romesh to travel to Sri Lanka and learn about his heritage. Now Shanthi has convinced Romesh to join her and travel further afield in search of other relatives they've never met and explore what his life could have been like if they'd ended up somewhere other than Crawley.

     

    For six weeks they will visit extended family across the continents and be joined by some of the characters Romesh met in the first series for stints along the way. Will their relationship survive them spending every moment together, when what Romesh wants to be a relaxing trip with his mother is certainly going to end up being the complete opposite?

    OFF THE KERB PRODUCTIONS WELCOMES DEIRDRE O’KANE TO THE STABLE

    By arrangement with the Lisa Richards Agency, Off The Kerb Productions are proud to announce they are to represent Deirdre O’Kane in the UK. Deirdre's talent and versatility as a performer has seen her receive huge acclaim and recognition in recent years. Her leading role of Debra Moone in the award winning series Moone Boy, opposite Peter McDonald and writer Chris O' Dowd, has earned her an IFTA (Irish Film and Television Academy Awards) nomination and also reaffirmed her place as one of Ireland’s most loved and revered comedy actresses, as well as introducing her to a new generation of fans.

    Her performance of Christina Noble opposite Liam Cunningham and Sarah Greene in Stephen Bradley's feature Noble, won her a Best Actress IFTA. The film which was released in September 2014, won Jury and Audience awards at the Boston Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Newport Beach Festival and the Nashville and Dallas Festivals.

    But it's her return to her stand up comedy roots, which has her excited right now and she relishes the chance in 'being a bit rock 'n' roll again'. She also explained the allure of stand up and admits 'there must be a part of me that likes the danger of putting yourself on the line like that. When you've worked hard at something, that skill is still in you, and it's like getting back on a bike.'

  • JOSH WIDDICOMBE: WHAT DO I DO NOW… SUMMER 2016 DATES ANNOUNCED

    JOSH WIDDICOMBE: WHAT DO I DO NOW… SUMMER 2016 DATES ANNOUNCED

    Following a sold-out 2015 autumn tour, Josh Widdicombe, that guy from the TV comedy shows with the curly hair, has announced some new UK tour dates for summer 2016.

    Since he's been away from stand up Josh has been working hard on other things... but don't worry in his spare time he has found a lot of minor things to get annoyed about, and now he has a chance to talk about them on stage (in the form of jokes). If you have seen him before live or on TV and enjoyed yourself then this is the show for you. If you didn't like him then it probably isn't.

    Since he was last on tour, Josh's Channel 4 show The Last Leg has gone from strength to strength and been nominated for various awards including a British Comedy Award and a Broadcast Award, while finally winning one at the Royal Television Society Awards. The series returned in 2016 with a two-part Australia special as well as an eight episode series this spring. The show has been commissioned for another series later this year, and the trio will also be heading to Rio for the 2016 Paralympics.

    Josh's self-penned sitcom Josh aired on BBC Three and BBC One in November 2015 to much critical acclaim. A huge ratings success for both the BBC Three and BBC One transmissions, the sitcom is currently filming a highly anticipated second series due to air this autumn.

    ROBOT WARS PRESENTER LINE UP REVEALED AND NEW LOGO IS UNVEILED

    Dara O Briain and Angela Scanlon will be the new presenters of Robot Wars when the series is rebooted for BBC Two, it was announced today.

    Dara and Angela will report on all the action from the new purpose-built fighting arena in Glasgow, which will allow viewers to get even closer to the action, with state-of-the-art cameras capable of capturing every crushing, sawing and scorching moment in incredible detail.

    Dara O Briain said: 'I am thrilled to be presenting Robot Wars. For too long, the schedules have cried out for a show in which dedicated amateurs toiling day and night, handcraft sophisticated automatons built on the delicate interplay of hand-wired servo motors with custom-built circuit boards and fingertip motion control, just to see them get smashed to pieces by a dustbin carrying a massive hammer. It's war, and how I love it so.'

    The new six-part series will be produced by Mentorn Scotland, part of the Tinopolis Group, in association with SJP Media, and will feature a new structure with more robots, more battles and more science than ever before. It also includes a raft of technological advances since the show first aired over a decade ago, and viewers can expect to see more innovative fighting machines as teams of amateur roboteers battle it out to win the coveted Robot Wars title.
