Avalon Promotions Ltd and the Menier Chocolate Factory present David Baddiel - My Family: Not The Sitcom

Olivier Award Nominee 2017

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.

It seems wrong to refer to this show as fantastically enjoyable - but that is what it was. I have no idea how David manages to keep it together to do it every night but not only achieves it he also refreshes it with current related items. I feel there may be a follow up to this show which will be our gain out of his loss.

This is a really thought provoking show for anybody that's ever had a relationship with a parent! DB does well to avoid drawing the audience too far into voyeurism and delivers a very touching and funny show.

This is an evening of laughs, total honesty and occasional out there sexual content. But all part of the fascinating story of David's family and his mother in particular. If she was still here she would be delighted I am sure. Personal but very genuine and touching.
