23 Jan 2014
Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival has teamed up with Juice 107.2 and Mayo Wynne Baxter to launch Brighton Nights - a show dedicated to Brighton’s live performance, arts and culture scene presented by rising comedy star Romesh Ranganathan.
Launching on Monday 27th January (Monday to Thursday from 10pm to midnight), the show will celebrate the vibrant music and theatre in the city, be an essential guide to what’s on and welcome touring and local guests to the studio.
Sussex born stand-up comedian and actor Romesh Ranganathan will host the two hour show. Having appeared on the likes of Mock the Week, Soccer AM, Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff, he was also nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2013 Edinburgh Comedy Awards and is currently a regular on Stand Up for the Week.
‘I started off my stand-up career in the venues of Brighton and have had so many brilliant experiences here,’ he says. ‘I’m really looking forward to broadcasting to the good people of Brighton every week night.’
Programme Manager at Juice 107.2 Tony Marks said: “We’ve been fans of Romesh from the local comedy scene for ages now and always knew it was only a matter of time before we started seeing him all over the TV. We are delighted to welcome him to the Juice 107.2 team and have no doubt that his show will be a brilliant listen.”
‘We are delighted to be partnering with Juice 107.2 to bring this new and exciting arts and culture resource to the city,’ says Andrew Comben, CEO, Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival. ‘We are sure that it will be an exciting platform to show case both touring and local talents and give arts and cultural organizations across the city a great opportunity to reach new audiences and help us to jointly develop fantastic content for the show. We hope that lots of people will tune in to hear more about all the great range of events taking place here in Brighton & Hove.’
Jason Edge, Marketing Director at Mayo Wynne Baxter said: ‘We have worked with Juice 107.2 for many years now and we are delighted to be associated with this exciting new show.’
