Speaker

Sandi Toksvig OBE

The diminutive Dane has been wowing audiences with her caustic wit since her student days, when she appeared in Cambridge Footlights reviews. She has taken over the QI presenter’s chair following Stephen Fry’s departure. She also co-hosts the new Great British Bake Off on Channel 4.

Having firmly established her presenting laurels with Radio 4’s Excess Baggage and The News Quiz, Sandi divides her time between travelling, writing and performing. She is also a regular on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue. TV credits include Mock the Week and the first ever episode of Have I Got News For You.

Sandi has written a number of children’s books, starting with Tales From The Norse’s Mouth. She has also been successful with non-fiction, including Island Race - an account of her voyage around the coast of Great Britain with her friend and former Beirut hostage John McCarthy, and The Tricky Art of Co-Existing, a guide to behaving decently in an indecent world.

Sandi has been named Channel 4 Political Humourist of the Year, and Radio Broadcaster of the Year by the Press Guild.
