David Baddiel - My Family: Not The Sitcom

Back by popular demand following a critically-acclaimed West End run and sold out residency at the Menier Chocolate Factory, My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It’s a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David’s behalf for the final time in the West End.
