David Baddiel My Family: Not The Sitcom

Visiting Company

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 the Glasgow International Comedy Festival.

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!
