Romesh Ranganathan

Stand-up comedian, presenter, podcaster and actor Romesh Ranganathan became Teenage Cancer Trust’s Comedy Icon in September 2023.

Romesh first became involved with Teenage Cancer Trust after performing at the iconic Royal Albert Hall comedy night in 2016, and since then he has remained an active fundraiser for the charity, performing at the Royal Albert Hall a further three times and donating signed items to help us fundraise. He has also supported Teenage Cancer Trust by performing at the Absolute Radio comedy night in 2022 alongside a brilliant line-up of comedians.

Romesh will be supporting Teenage Cancer Trust, as well as suicide prevention charity CALM, throughout his UK headline tour HUSTLE in 2023 and 2024 and invited some of the charity’s Young People to watch A League of Their Own being filmed, with the recording including England’s World Cup star Mary Earps in one of the show’s most dangerous ever stunts.

Romesh said: “I’ve had the pleasure of supporting the charity for a few years now and I have seen the important work they do to help teenagers and young adults who have cancer.”

“It is a particularly difficult time for young people who are diagnosed with cancer and I feel honoured that I can use my platform to raise money and awareness of the charity, to ensure young people receive the best care and support.”

As well as appearing on numerous television shows, Romesh is a double BAFTA TV winner for The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan and for The Ranganation.
