Review: David Baddiel, Menier Chocolate Factory

This was the second time I've seen David Baddiel's Fame: Not The Musical and it is as funny, clever and insightful as it was when I saw the shorter version at the Edinburgh Fringe last summer. It's Baddiel's first stand-up show for 15 years and yet it barely feels as if he's been away. He's as sharp, perceptive and pathologically honest as ever. I'm not quite sure why Baddiel rubs some people up the wrong way.

Children’s writers beware. It seems as if comedians are coming over here taking your bloody jobs. Yesterday it was announced that David Baddiel’s first novel for children, The Parent Agency, is to be published this autumn by Harper Collins. Baddiel got the idea for the fantasy about a boy whose dreams come true after inventing stories for his kids: “The Parent Agency came about after a chat with my nine-year-old son Ezra.” Maybe his son should be on a royalty.

Review: The Life Of Rock With Brian Pern, BBC4

Update 11/2/14: I did wonder what Peter Gabriel would make of The Life Of Rock with Brian Pern. Despite a plethora of gags at his expense it appears that he liked it (if this is genuine). Read his response here.
