Sanjeev Bhaskar


Actor and Comedy Writer

One of the most familiar and beloved faces in British comedy, Sanjeev Bhaskar is perhaps best known for the huge success of The Kumars at No.42, a chat show hosted from the family living room. The show won an Emmy Award, and the personal approval of Nelson Mandela, who enjoyed it so much he invited the cast to interview him in his own home.

After an early career in marketing with IBM, Sanjeev first made his name in the late 90s with the iconic ensemble sketch show Goodness Gracious Me. Starring Meera Syal, to whom he is now married, Kulvinder Ghir and Nina Wadia, the show transferred from radio to television, becoming a cult favourite and a milestone in British comedy, and went on to play to sell-out audiences on tour.

On stage, he has played King Arthur in Spamalot and unexpectedly hosted Steven Berkoff’s Saddam Hussein in Dinner with Saddam. On the big screen he has appeared in Anita and Me, The Zero Theorem, Notting Hill, and London Boulevard. His other television credits include Doctor Who, The Indian Doctor, a host of appearances in comedy and drama shows, plus he’s fronted documentaries on India and Indian cinema. He also solves cold cases in the detective drama Unforgotten and stars in the adaption of The Sandman.

A classy, professional and hugely experienced performer, Sanjeev is the ideal choice to bring your event together with his friendly style and quick wit. Get in touch with Spectrum Speakers to find out how to book comedian and actor Sanjeev Bhaskar for your next corporate event.
