After the sell out success of her debut Edinburgh run that went to several extra shows and secured her an Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer award nomination for her show ‘Sandhog’, Sindhu Vee is bringing her show to the North. 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 means Sindhu has cemented her arrival on the comedy map in a big way!
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’
‘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.
