Never miss another 'David Baddiel' show
My Family - Not The Sitcom: David Baddiel
Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two critically-acclaimed West End runs, David Baddiel takes his Olivier-nominated one-man show to theatres nationwide. My Family: Not the Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats. A massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come and be offended on David’s behalf!
When family members die, or are lost to dementia, all we tend to say about them is that they were wonderful. But if that is all you can say about them, you may as well say nothing: to truly remember our loved ones, you have to call up their weirdnesses, their madnesses, their flaws. Because the dead, despite what we may think, are not angels.
Opening to a wealth of glowing reviews, the show has been described as ‘Baddiel launches himself into the Louis CK league of no-holds-barred comedy’ (The Metro), ‘This is a rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears’ (Evening Standard), ‘Universally joyful’ (Chortle) and ‘Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection’ (The Guardian).
This show has a recommended age of 12+.
Brilliant, inspired stand-up comedian from the man who packed Wembley and gave us 'Three Lions', founder member of the legendary Mary Whitehouse Experience and partner of both Rob Newman and Frank Skinner. He also wrote for the BBC radio classic 'Week Ending' along with a host of contributors who included Ged Parsons, Oleg Stepaniuk, Nick & Roger Saunders, Michael Dines and Bob & Barbara Boulton.
