Much admired comedian David Baddiel is bringing his new comedy My Family: Not the Sitcom to the Vaudeville Theatre following a successful, sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory earlier this year.
Watch David Baddiel explore powerful themes at the Vaudeville Theatre.
This moving show has been described as being a “massively disrespectful celebration” of the lives of Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah and his father Colin, who suffers from dementia.
Baddiel presents a side-splitting yet powerfully moving exploration of the memory, ageing, dysfunctional relatives, infidelity, moral policing on social media, and even gay cats!
At the Menier Chocolate Factory, My Family: Not the Sitcom earned a string of highly celebratory reviews. Michael Billington of the Guardian described the show as:
“Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and uncomplicated affection.”
The accolade was shared by Dominic Maxwell of The Times, who referred to the production as:
“Hugely funny… if you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly.”
Bruce Dessau of the Evening Standard wrote an equally impressive review, describing My Family: Not the Sitcom as:
“A rare production that boats side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears as Baddiel reminds us his mother was more than just wonderful. So is this show.”
David Baddiel- My Family: Not the Sitcom is showing at the Vaudeville Theatre on the West End for a limited five week run, starting on Monday 12 September 2016 until Saturday 15 October 2016. The show runs for one hour 50 minutes, including one interval.
