David Baddiel


My Family: Not the Sitcom
About the Show

From $49 / General Admission Seating / 16+

Comedian David Baddiel brings his Olivier-nominated show to Brisbane following a UK tour and two critically-acclaimed London West End runs.

My Family: Not the Sitcom is about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats. This is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come and be offended on David’s behalf!

★★★★★ “A rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears.” EVENING STANDARD, UK 
★★★★★ “An exceptional piece of comedy.” DEN OF GEEK, UK
