News: UK Tour For Sindhu Vee

After the success of her debut Edinburgh run which secured her an Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer award nomination for her show ‘Sandhog’, Sindhu Vee has announced a full UK tour starting on 1st February in Crawley and culminating on 3rd April in Bath.  This is in addition to her two week Soho Theatre run in January, a booking on the prestigious Live At The Apollo and a second Radio 4 series commission.

Sindhu Vee, who was born & raised in India and has received degrees from Delhi, Oxford (for which she got a Radhakrishnan scholarship), McGill and Chicago Universities. She also has half a PHD! After a very short stint being an Yves San Laurent model, she changed direction putting her qualifications to good use and had a successful career in investment banking.  She has three kids, including two teenagers, with her Danish husband and owns a bizarrely gigantic Labrador…and now in her early 40’s Sindhu decided it was time to change direction and make her parents proud starting a career in comedy. 

The award-winning comedian, who only started gigging properly in 2015, has already racked up an impressive range of recent credits that include ‘QI’ & ‘Have I Got News For You’. She is the new host of BBC R4 Comedy of the Week Podcast and has her own Radio 4 comedy series, 'Sindhustan', that she recorded this June and transmits later this year.  She has also had her own sitcom optioned by a production company. She has just been asked to be a judge on the Bollinger Everyman committee an award for fiction (a previous winner was Helen Fielding). 

‘Sandhog’ is about how exhausting and complicated it is to love our children, spouse and parents, but how inescapable the urge is to love them as fully as we can. Who the hell doesn't want love?? You want it, you have to work for it!  It’s about being the generation responsible for both the kids and aging parents. When she was young she was brought up by an Ayah (like an Indian nanny) and wore hand-me-downs and had a stammer into her early 20’s. Should she just appreciate what she has? We can’t choose our kids or our parents and ties to them feel primordial...but we can choose our spouse.  Those ties feel highly questionable at so many points once the bloom of new love is gone (somewhere between 24 hours - 24 months after the wedding!). Yet many people choose to stay married. Why? Divorce has never been so easy. This show also looks at some home truths on marriage.

Other TV credits include Alan Davies as Yet Untitled and Live From the BBC.
