Sindhu’s father is Tamil and her mother is from Uttar Pradesh. Born in India, Sindhu has lived in Delhi, Lucknow & the Philippines. The mother of three has studied at the universities of Delhi, Oxford, Mc Gill (Montreal) and Chicago where she met her Danish husband who she has been married to for twenty years. She credits her parents and her own parenting experiences for being a great source of material for her routine.
In 2016 Sindhu was nominated for the BBC New Comedy Award and in 2018 her solo show Sandhog debuted to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the world’s largest arts festival.
