David Baddiel -  My Family, Not the Sitcom

David Baddiel - My Family, Not the Sitcom


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!

‘Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection’  The Guardian 

‘Hugely funny…If you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly.’The Times 

‘Universally joyful… I wish this show long life’  Chortle 

‘Rare to see one that draws its subject as honestly, vividly and humorously as this’ The i
