David Baddiel – My Family: Not The Sitcom

Playhouse Theatre, Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5DE

David Baddiel returns to the West End in My Family: Not The Sitcom at the Playhouse Theatre.

Following a critically acclaimed run at the Menier Chocolate Factory and the Vaudeville Theatre, My Family: Not The Sitcom returns to the West End by popular demand for limited run.

My Family: Not the Sitcom runs from 28 March 2017 until 3 June 2017 at the Playhouse Theatre.


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.

My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It’s a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, what we can and can’t say in an over-policed moral culture, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David’s behalf.
