Society may be obsessed with fame, but what's it really like? British comedian David Baddiel is to bring his critically acclaimed Fame: Not the Musical to London’s Menier Chocolate Factory. The show will run April 29 through May 23.
From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand’s wedding, to realizing Andrew Lloyd Webber cannot tell him apart from Ben Elton, 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.
Baddiel is currently adapting his TV comedy The Infidel into a stage musical. His numerous TV credits include Fantasy Football, Baddiel & Skinner Unplanned, Newman and Baddiel in Pieces and Heresy. He recently released his fourth novel, The Death of Eli Gold.
