OFF-JFL: David Baddiel My Family: Not The Sitcom


July 20, 21, 22, 23 at 7PM

Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two critically-acclaimed West End runs, David Baddiel brings his Olivier-nominated one-man show to Montreal for its North American premiere. 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 their behalf! Hugely funny…If you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly. -The Times J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling I was so in need of a good laugh. Thank you, @Baddiel, for your brilliant, funny, emotional show xxx Russell Brand @rusty rockets Go see @Baddiel’s beautiful show. Sex, death, dementia, golf memorabilia, grammar nazis and actual nazis. I “loved” it Ricky Gervais‏ @rickygervais @Baddiel “My Family: Not The Sitcom” is Absolutely Brilliant! Finally a fresh spin on the old “My mum fled the nazis & wanks too loudly”.
