David Baddiel - My Family: Not the Sitcom
Covering topics such as memory, ageing, infidelity, gay cats and over-sensitive moral culture, My Family – Not the Sitcom is described by Baddiel as a massively disrespectful celebration of his parents. Because after all, when family members die, you tend to only talk about how wonderful they are. But if we truly remember our loved ones, we will remember their weirdness, madness and flaws – they may not all be angels!
Baddiel previously performed at the Menier Chocolate Factory in his hugely successful production FAME: Not the Musical, which his on and off relationship with celebrity. He is perhaps best-known for his collaborations with Frank Skinner, including Fantasy Football League, which aired for over 10 years. In 2010, Baddiel wrote hit film The Infidel, starring Omid Djalili, Matt Lucas and Miranda Hart, which later transferred to the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2014.
After an acclaimed season at the Menier, David Baddiel: My Family – Not the Sitcom opens at the Vaudeville Theatre on September 12th and will play for a limited season until October 15th 2016.
