News: National Tour For David Baddiel's My Family: Not The Sitcom

Update 2/3: More tour dates added due to demand in Oxford and Cambridge, as well as extra shows added for Stafford, Exeter, Lancaster, Durham and Swindon. Click links below for full details. It's an excellent show, go see it.

Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two West End runs, David Baddiel takes his Olivier-nominated show to theatres nationwide. My Family: Not the Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf and gay cats. "A massively disrespectful" celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. 

The tour starts in Aberdeen on February 1, 2018, and currently finishes in Leeds on June 22. 

Baddiel says: "When family members die, or are lost to dementia, all we tend to say about them is that they were wonderful. But if that is all you can say about them, you may as well say nothing: to truly remember our loved ones, you have to call up their weirdnesses, their madnesses, their flaws. Because the dead, despite what we may think, are not angels."
