Romesh Ranganathan: Woman ‘dragged’ out of comedian’s show after racist attack



A lady was “dragged” out of a Romesh Ranganathan comedy show on Thursday (6 January), after shouting racist abuse on the comic.

Ranganathan, 43, is at present performing stand-up on his The Cynics Mixtape Tour, and through a show on the Eventim Apollo theatre in Hammersmith, London, he was topic to heckling by a feminine viewers member.

Footage shared by the Mail exhibits the comic and crowd reacting in shock as the lady is taken out of the venue by safety. The viewers may be heard shouting “cheerio, cheerio, cheerio” as she leaves.

One viewers member may be heard saying: “She’s being carried out! She’s being dragged out!”

Ranganathan wasted no time cracking a joke after the incident, telling the viewers: “Do you know something? Let me tell you honestly, I’ve got really mixed feelings about that, as I was finding that very distracting.

“So I apologise for that and so I’m glad that’s been dealt with.

“But also I’m slightly sad that’s the most excited you’ve sounded all evening.”

According to The Sun, Ranganathan had confronted the heckler, saying: “Wait listen, I’m getting distracted. You’re going to have to shut the f*** up. What’s going on?

“Am I being a p***k here? Why are you stood up, what’s going on?”

The heckling reportedly started after Rangathan made a joke about racism in soccer.

The Independent has contacted Ranganathan’s representatives for remark.
