Following a first-class degree from Cambridge, Sandi Toksvig went into the theatre, where she both wrote and performed before becoming one of the founder members of the Comedy Store Players.

She is well known for her television and radio work, as a presenter, writer and actor. She has written many books for children. The highlights of Sandi's media career include writing numerous comedy and drama scripts for Channel 4, the BBC and TVS; co-writing and presenting long running children's TV show 'Number 73'; writing two successful children's books; and appearing as a regular on many successful TV shows such as 'Whose line Is It Anyway', 'Call my Bluff', 'Time Team' and 'Jackanory'. Other TV credits include 'Question Time', 'Behind the Headlines' and 'Great Journeys' featuring her canoeing down the Zambezi.

Sandi began her career by performing with the Cambridge Footlights, where she was Director/Writer and performed in the first ever all Female Cambridge Revue. This early success set the tone for what has been a wonderfully varied and accomplished career - her unique style and sense of humour are sure to liven up any broadcast or event.
