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.
