The host for the Bett Awards ceremony on 23 March 2022 will be Sindhu Vee.
Since swapping a career in investment banking for one in comedy, Sindhu has fast become one of the most exciting and sought-after talents on the UK circuit. In 2018 Sindhu took her eagerly-anticipated debut hour, Sandhog, to the Edinburgh Fringe and was nominated for the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer.
After the Fringe, Sindhu took Sandhog to the Soho Theatre for two sold-out runs and on a hugely successful 92 date UK tour.
Sindhu’s television career is also firmly on the up. She has twice appeared on BBC Two’s Live At The Apollo, most recently as host, and has guested on BBC panel shows Mock The Week, QI & Have I Got News For You. In 2020, she also acted in the critically acclaimed Netflix shows Feel Good and Sex Education.
In 2018 Sindhu wrote and hosted her own series, Sindhustan, on Radio 4. She returned to the station this summer with her new series, Things My Mother Never Told Me About Lockdown. Sindhu co-hosts the Child Labour podcast with Stuart Goldsmith for Radio X and is also a regular on The Guilty Feminist podcast with Deborah Frances-White.
Sindhu also has a strong international fanbase. She has performed to sold-out houses in India, plus performed her stand up for NDTV’s Rising Stars of Comedy.
