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




Approx 150 mins


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
