David Baddiel Fame: Not the Musical - SOLD OUT
Thursday 27th March at 8.00pm 8.00pm
Fame: our society is obsessed with it - but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? David Baddiel, in his first full show for fifteen years, does. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him apart from Ben Elton, David Baddiel takes aim at himself, and examines his strange relationship with the New Lad/Token Jew/Comedy rock'n'roller/Football singer-songwriter that people see him as.
"Hilarious and weirdly moving" The Guardian
"Go see @baddiel. The man is an inspiration." Russell Brand @RustyRockets
