Brisbane Festival, in association with The Tivoli, presents

David Baddiel - My Family: Not The Sitcom


13 Sept | The Tivoli



David Baddiel (UK)

Australian Premiere

★★★★★ “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

Accomplished comedian, author, screenwriter and television presenter David Baddiel brings his Olivier-nominated, one-man stage show to Australia following a UK tour, a sold-out run in London and two critically-acclaimed West End runs. My Family: Not the Sitcom has been described as “brave, brutal and brilliant” (Graham Norton), “brilliant, funny, emotional” (J.K. Rowling), “absolutely beautiful” (Hugh Laurie) and “deeply personal, hilarious and touching in equal measure” (Bill Bailey).

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. Come and be offended on David’s behalf!
