One of the funniest shows in many a year
2 November 2015 | by masterji-00635See all my reviews

Brilliant family entertainment- the episode with King Kong, the Tamil film star is one of the funniest I have ever seen. The basic premise of the show is that he goes a back to SL to visit his roots where He sees family and old family haunts. Each week we see Romesh in a different setting, he reluctantly throws himself in because his mum has requested it. In many ways he is an English man abroad. Romesh has great comic timing as you would expect from such a celebrated comic and his little quips are just genius but the other characters also help to make this a brilliant show. I hope there is a second series because this great entertainment where all 3 generations can watch.
