“…a confident and assured set, effortlessly reeling in the audience” THE SKINNY

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….

What is ‘Sandhog’ about?

“…plenty of bitchy and biting material…” THE LIST

‘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.

Impressive range of recent credits

“ well structured and entertaining”  EDINBURGH FESTIVAL MAGAZINE
