News: New Live Dates For Sindhu Vee

After the success of her debut Edinburgh show ‘Sandhog’ that secured her an Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer award nomination, Sindhu Vee has announced an extension of her UK tour this Autumn.

The tour restarts  on 2 September at Hove’s The Old Market and culminates at the London’s Depot North Finchley on 14 November.  This year she appeared on Live At The Apollo for the first time (the clip has now been seen by an astonishing 30 million plus viewers in just a couple of months) and a second Radio 4 series has been commissioned.

Vee was born and raised in India and has received degrees from Delhi, Oxford (for which she got a Radhakrishnan scholarship), McGill and Chicago Universities. 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 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 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. 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? This show also looks at some home truths on marriage.
