Asian Provocateur – Mum’s American Dream
Comedian Romesh Ranganathan is travelling the world again in Asian Provocateur – Mum’s American Dream – and once again he is on an odyssey to meet family members. This time he is meeting his family who left Sri Lanka to settle in North America to see what his life could have been like had his parents not chosen Crawley. Unfortunately for him, this time his mum Shanthi is coming too.
Romesh and his mum’s relationship hits an all-time low when he breaks free from Shanthi to attend a beer-chugging Frat party initiation. On the final day Pratheep has arranged the one thing Shanthi wanted to do – see a Gospel choir – but she is so angry with Romesh that she takes herself back to the retirement Park and misses the whole thing, leaving Romesh trying to work out how to make it up to her.
