Good Ship Comedy presents Sindhu Vee
- No reviews.
- The Colonel Fawcett
Sindhu Vee is most likely the tallest Indian woman you’ll ever meet. The daughter of Indian parents, a London-based mother, and bearer of half a PhD, it is rumoured but unverified, that Sindhu practised the dark arts of investment banking before making her parents proud by becoming a stand-up. She devotes all the time she has left over from raising her 3 children (and a bizarrely gigantic labrador) to comedy and suffering facial peels.
Since bursting onto the UK stand-up comedy scene a few years ago she has charmed and beguiled audiences with her sharp tongue, accurate home truths and totally unique life experience. It’s no surprise then that she was nominated for a Best Newcomer gong at the Edinburgh Fringe last year, nor that she’s popping up all over our TV screens on iconic shows such as Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News For You and QI. She might still be new to stand-up, but she has the savvy and rootedness of a much-loved veteran. It’s no surprise that she’s already selling out her debut national tour, so best catch her at our wee gaff before she’s selling out huge theatres!
"Acerbic perspective and unapologetic delivery of less politically correct home truths." The List
"Effortlessly manages to be simultaneously waspish yet instantly very likeable." Chortle

BEN VAN DER VELDE
One of the quickest wits around and a much-loved compere, he always brings a jam-packed back of nonsense, silliness and wisecracks to every gig he hosts.
"Sharp and crafty gagsmith, a life-giving compere." Chortle
"Wonderfully improvised riffs showcasing his impressive spontaneity and sharp tongue." Edinburgh Festivals Magazine
