The British Comedian is enjoying a smooth relationship with his wife Leesa. Mrs. Ranganathan has complete control over her husband’s material, and she has to approve the material if it involves her.

Comedian wife is a private woman and she chose to stay away from her husband’s highlights, we don’t know many details about her besides some told by her husband on social media. He also likes being supported by his lady, and that something his wife gives generously.

As a teenager, Romesh's father went to prison, their house was repossessed and his family spent 18 months in bread and breakfast awaiting council house. In his letter to my younger self, he explains how his fight with poverty turned him from being a lazy teen to the hardest working person on the television.
Contrary his mother always wanted him to be a doctor but he was interested in comedy and hip-hop music. Previously the 39-year-old British comedian had an easy childhood living in a semi-detached house where they got everything they needed.
But when his dad got into prison everything fell apart. He says ''It was insane to go from super easy to everything falling away''. His parents came over from Srilanka for his dad to finish his accountancy exams and also give them a good start ahead. His dad ended up in prison and also they had divorced it was quite difficult for young Romesh to cope with the situation.
His mother worked very hard while dad was in prison. Watching all that he promised to get out of that situation he then started working really hard.
And soon after his Dad got after from prison they started to get along with each other and soon everything went back to normal. While his dad was away, he adds ''My mum had to work really hard to raise us, so I felt I had to find a way to make sure that I wasn't vain''.
Currently, the father of three did his first stand-up Gig in a talent contest at Pontins when he was 11. His parents being a Lankan descendant never spoke Tamil to their children since they always wanted their children to speak English and make a great future ahead in life.
