EP.61 - ROMESH RANGANATHAN

Adam talks to British stand up comedian Romesh Ranganathan about life in Los Angeles, race and diversity in comedy (funnier than that sounds) dealing with negative criticism (a favourite topic!) and the delicate business of exploiting your family for entertainment purposes. There’s also some freestyle rapping that should provoke some considerable insecurity for the so called giants of the hip hop community. Adam Buxton’s Old Bits DVD is out now from gofasterstripe.com Thanks to Seamus Murphy Mitchell for production support. Music & jingles by Adam Buxton

My favourite episode (although every episode is great).... so so so funny. Both Adam and Romesh are such genuinely funny, positive and entertaining gents and I enjoyed every minute. But the freestyle rap battle at the end is worth the wait!!
Thanks Adam for all the work you do and make available, you bring a smile and laugh to many of us 'podcasters'

I've started binge-listening to your podcast. My 14 year old son fancies himself as a freestyle rapper, so on the way to school I played him the bit with you guys freestyle rapping. He was drinking at the time and laughed so hard at the Animals rap that he sprayed the dashboard with smoothie. He thinks I am an inappropriate mother for playing him that and I need to get the car valeted.
Love the podcast.

Hey Adam, one of my favorite episodes so far. Love the freestyle rap battles at the end.
The musical interlude about 25 minutes in is amazing, is there are more of the tune?

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
