David Baddiel Adds Second Sydney Show To Olivier-Nominated 'My Family: Not The Sitcom' Tour

David Baddiel Adds Second Sydney Show To Olivier-Nominated 'My Family: Not The Sitcom' Tour

A second Sydney performance has been added to meet demand for UK comedy royalty David Baddiel's Olivier-nominated one-man stage show My Family: Not The Sitcom. Frontier Comedy are thrilled to announce that David will perform a second Seymour Centre show on Saturday 15 September.

The true story of David's life with his now deceased mother and dementia-suffering father, My Family: Not The Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats.

The acclaimed comedian, author, screenwriter and television presenter makes his highly anticipated Australian debut this September, kicking off with two shows at Sydney's Seymour Centre on Friday 14 and Saturday 15 September, before heading to Perth's Octagon Theatre on Monday 17 September and wrapping up with two shows at Melbourne's Alex Theatre on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 September. Tickets to all shows are on sale now.

Baddiel's comedy pedigree is deep-seeded. In 1992 David and his comedy partner Rob Newman were the first comedy act to ever sell out the Wembley Arena, prompting the media to declare comedy "the new rock 'n' roll".

HIs more recent partnership with Frank Skinner saw the pair co-write and perform with The Lightning Seeds the football anthem 'Three Lions (Football's Coming Home)' as the England football team's official anthem for 1996 UEFA Euro Cup.The song recently re-entered the official singles chart at Number 1 for a record fourth time when England reached the semi-final stages of the 2018 World Cup.

Some of the family history David touches on in My Family: Not The Sitcom includes his refugee mother's escape from Nazi Germany as a five month old child. A swastika appeared on her birth certificate, and soon after their arrival David's grandfather Ernst was interned as an enemy alien on the Isle of Man for a year. An episode of the BBC's genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are? investigated his heritage in some detail, but failed to prove his theory that his mother had been secretly adopted from another Jewish family who had no hope of escaping.

My Family: Not The Sitcom is 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! My Family: Not The Sitcom makes its Australian debut this September in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne.
