Multi award-winning Romesh Ranganathan is back on the road with a brand-new show Hustle - examining the human condition.

Are people inherently good? Is charity always a positive thing? Is hustling the key to success? Or is all this a load of rubbish we’ve made up to keep people working hard for no reason?  Join Romesh as he examines all of these issues and more, while providing no real answers.

Romesh returns to Australia for the first time since 2017 kicking off in Melbourne on 2 October before heading to Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.  Tickets go on sale Friday 10 May at 10am.
