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

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. 


News: Baddiel & Newman Reunited...Via Twitter

One time arena-filling double act superstars David Baddiel and Rob Newman had a public comedic exchange today for the first time in over two decades.

After fan Rachel Palmer quipped on Twitter that whenever she sees Robert Palmer she thinks there's a non-league football team missing a manager David Baddiel responded by saying: "That, of course, is a great @mrrobnewman joke of old. Akthough doesn't work quite so well now Robert Palmer's dead."

Opinion: Why Don't The Olivier Awards Have a Stand-Up Category? By David Baddiel

As a few of you will know, my show, My Family: Not The Sitcom was nominated for an Olivier Award this year. It didn’t win it, the award for that category going to Matthew Bourne’s beautiful ballet, The Red Shoes. 


Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – David Baddiel

David Baddiel's latest show, My Family: Not The Sitcom returns to the West End for the third and final time from March 29. It is honest, touching, audacious and, of course, very funny. Baddiel has found a way to tackle the most delicate of subjects – in this case his father's dementia and his late mother's infidelity – and find humour in them. He makes it look easy. It clearly isn't. Over the years, right back to his early days working with Rob Newman, Baddiel has divided critics and comedy fans.

TV: The Trouble With Dad, C4

When I saw David Baddiel’s latest stage show My Family: Not The Sitcom, I expected it to be equally about both of his intriguing, eccentric parents. In fact it was predominantly about his late mother Sarah and her long-running affair with a golfer. There was less about Baddiel’s father Colin, who has a form of dementia called Pick’s Disease. This television documentary redresses the balance, telling the moving story of his father.

News: BBC Axes David Baddiel Radio Show

The BBC has not recommissioned the Radio 4 show Don’t Make Me Laugh.

The show was created and fronted by David Baddiel and got into hot water earlier this year over jokes about the sex life of the Queen in a pre-recorded episode which coincided with the day of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
