After the sell-out success of her debut Edinburgh run, Sindhu Vee brings her award nominated show Sandhog to Salford and Bury.
The Edinburgh Comedy Newcomer award nominee will perform a show at The Lowry Studio in Salford before a performing the next day at The Met in Bury.
Sindhu has quite the CV. Born and raised in India she received degrees from Delhi, Oxford (with a Radhakrishnan scholarship), McGill and Chicago Universities. She also has half a PhD! Did a brief stint as an Yves San Laurent model, had a successful career in investment banking, has three kids (including two teenagers), with her Danish husband and owns a gigantic Labrador. And in her early 40’s Sindhu has decided a career change to comedy is in order. With all that, there’s certainly no shortage of material.
The award-winning comedian, who only started gigging properly in 2015, has already racked up an impressive range of recent credits that include QI and 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.
What is Sandhog about?
Sandhog, which bagged Sindhu Vee an Edinburgh Comedy Wards newcomer nomination, 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 ageing 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.
When does Sindhu Vee bring Sandhog to Salford’s Lowry and Bury’s The Met?
Sindhu Vee performs Sandhog at Salford’s Lowry Studio on 22 March 2019 and Bury’s Met Studio on 23 March 2019.
