David Baddiel – Fame: Not the Musical – Key Comedy Fest
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. A “very funny and thought-provoking” (Veronica Lee, Daily Telegraph) meditation on a life lived in – and out – of fame. “Hilarious and weirdly moving” (Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian).
