Rob and Romesh Vs: A pandemic pick-me-up

Comedy is hard graft. But comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan made light work of an RTS session that turned the spotlight on the pair’s hilarious Sky One entertainment documentary series, Rob and Romesh Vs.    

In the series the likely lads gamely take on unfamiliar worlds and situations. It could be basketball or more unlikely still, ballet.       

They even underwent the agonies of colonic irrigation for the benefit of the cameras – an experience Ranganathan told the RTS he still regrets – while in LA getting the lowdown on the NBA.

The three comedians will be locked in the world-famous toy shop on London’s Regent Street overnight, with no security guards to hinder their fun. 

The trio will have all night to do what they imagined and dreamed of doing in a toy shop when they were kids, with the only rules being no sleeping, that’s cheating, leave everything where you found it, and if they break something, they have to pay for it.
