David Baddiel - Trolls: Not the Dolls

Part of Comedy

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

Come with David Baddiel on a comedy journey into our culture’s most dank virtual underground in his brand new one-man show.

The show follows Baddiel’s Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not the Sitcom and the return to number one of his seminal football anthem ‘Three Lions’.

Trolls – the terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than to fill the huge gaps in their souls.

Baddiel has stories to tell, of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths that interacting with trolls has led him down.

Join him and you will come back safe, more able to deflect your own trolls and only a little bit soiled.

There is a common wisdom about how to deal with trolls: don’t, for goodness sake, encourage these people by replying to them.

It’s a good law. And it’s one that Baddiel has consistently broken. Because he has always seen trolls as hecklers, and if a comedian gets heckled, it is their duty not to ignore the heckler, but to wittily put them down.

Over the years, Baddiel has spent a lot of time doing this, which has led him to think that there might be a show in it: a show that would say something about how we live now.

This is a rare production that boasts side-splitting laughs and also moves people to tears ★★★★
David Baddiel is breathtakingly honest ★★★★
