David Baddiel – My Family: Not the Sitcom

The Olivier-nominated one-man show comes to Storyhouse
  • £27 (each ticket is subject to a £1.50 booking fee)
  • Storyhouse Theatre

Part of: Spring Season

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!

No standby tickets are available for this event

Reviews

Baddiel launches himself into the Louis CK league of no-holds-barred comedy
This is a rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears
Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection
Universally joyful… I wish this show long life
Rare to see one that draws its subject as honestly, vividly and humorously as this
