The stand-up comedian and actor is married and has three children.
His wife’s name is Leesa and she works as a drama teacher. They have three sons named Charlie, Theo and Alex.
Romesh often uses his family as a starting point for many of his jokes. His episode of Jamie and Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast saw his mother, Shanthi, on the show, too. He said that his mum often brings over ‘care packages’ of food to his house, usually when his wife, Leesa, has just cooked a meal.
