Fame: Not the Musical
In this long-awaited show, which previewed at Soho Theatre before premiering at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, David Baddiel talks about his relationship to fame. Fame: our society is obsessed with it - but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? David Baddiel, in his first full-length show for fifteen years, does just that. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him and Ben Elton apart, David Baddiel takes comedic aim at himself and examines his strange relationship with the 'new lad / token Jew / comedy rock'n'roller / football singer-songwriter' people see him as. A meditation on a life lived in (and out of) fame.
