Following a critically acclaimed, complete sell-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory, My Family: Not The Sitcom comes to the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited 5 week run.

My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel's late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It's a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David's behalf.

'Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection'

Michael Billington, The Guardian

'Hugely funny&If you're going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly.'

Dominic Maxwell, The Times

'Universally joyful& I wish this show long life'

Steve Bennett, Chortle

Rare to see one that draws its subject as honestly, vividly and humorously as this'

Alice Jones, The i

'Baddiel launches himself into the Louis CK league of no-holds-barred comedy'

John Nathan, Metro

'This is a rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears as Baddiel reminds us his mother was more than just wonderful. So is this show'

Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

'A show that bubbles with love and unexpected joie de vivre'

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
