 Those taking part in Romesh Presents… are

  1.   Ellie Taylor

Each 15-minute short will be tailored to the individual comedian, with formats including a studio clip show and a comedic documentary. The shorts will be available on demand, rather than broadcast, but under the Sky One banner. 

They are being made by Ranga Bee, the production company  Ranganathan runs with director Benjamin Green, along with CPL Productions – which makes League Of Their Own. The two companies also made the second series of  Ranganathan’s Sky One sitcom the Reluctant Landlord. 

In a statement, Ranganathan and Green said: ‘We are delighted that Sky is trusting us to work with some of the most exciting comics in the UK. We will do our best to not end their promising careers.’

Phil Edgar-Jones, Sky’s head of entertainment, added: ‘Romesh Ranganathan is at the very forefront of comedy in the UK and we are delighted he’s curating this series of short-form shows for us – all showcasing some of the best comic talent in the UK. Bite-sized treats for everyone to enjoy.’
