Sandi Toksvig My Valentine (Sandi Toksvig)

By | Published on Tuesday 6 August 2013

As Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’ swells to the rafters, an exuberant Sandi Toksvig emerges from the wings. Her show ‘My Valentine’ is, essentially, a celebration of her life; and what a ferociously funny life she has led. The Cambridge scholar takes a fond, retrospective look at the events that helped shape the person she is today. From drunken toilet trouble to canoeing the Zambezi River, nothing is left out. Teetering on the brink of eccentricity, Toksvig delights her audience with her fantastically witty observations, razor sharp intellect, and seemingly endless charisma. This astoundingly funny show is a true testament to the illustrious career of Sandi Toksvig and is most certainly not to be missed.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 11 Aug, 4.00pm.
