David Baddiel: My Family: Not The Sitcom

Motherwell Concert Hall and Theatre
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. ‘Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection’ Michael Billington, The Guardian ‘Hugely funny…If you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly.’ Dominic Maxwell, The Times ‘Universally joyful… I wish this show long life’ Steve Bennett, Chortle Rare to see one that draws its subject as honestly, vividly and humorously as this’ Alice Jones, The i ‘Baddiel launches himself into the Louis CK league of no-holds-barred comedy’ John Nathan, Metro ‘This is a rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears as Baddiel reminds us his mother was more than just wonderful. So is this show’ Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard ‘A show that bubbles with love and unexpected joie de vivre’ Chris Bennion, The Telegraph ★★★★★ Metro ★★★★★ Jewish Chronicle ★★★★ The Guardian ★★★★ The Times ★★★★ The Telegraph ★★★★ Sunday Times Culture ★★★★ Evening Standard ★★★★ The i ★★★★ WhatsOnStage ★★★★ Mail On Sunday, Event Magazine ★★★★ City A.M. ★★★★ The Arts Desk
