David Baddiel - My Family: Not The SitcomDuration 2h

Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Avenue, London, United Kingdom WC2N 5DE

Back by popular demand following an Olivier Award-nominated West End run, celebrated comedian David Baddiel performs this fond, somewhat irreverent, tribute to the lives of his late mother and his dementia-suffering father, Sarah and Colin.

Billed as “a massively disrespectful celebration” of the lives of parents Sarah and Colin, My Family: Not The Sitcom digs beneath the surface of his “wonderful” memories in order to truly remember them.

Recalling their oddities, peculiarities and idiosyncrasies, he celebrates their flaws and achievements uniformly; the dead, after all, aren’t angels.

A show about memories, ageing, infidelity, political correctness and gay cats, Baddiel invites audiences to come and be offended on his behalf on what promises to be a provocative and hilarious evening.

Please note that this show contains explicit language and is unsuitable for children under the age of 16 years.
