David Baddiel, one of England’s best known comedians, will be at Vicar Street this March for his first full show in fifteen years.
The show, ‘Fame: Not the Musical’, will feature David talking honestly about all aspects of fame and how it has affected him. Speaking on topics such as how Andrew Lloyd Webber thinks he is Ben Elton and how he stole the spotlight at Russell Brand’s wedding by accident, David will talk openly about his experience of fame in what has been called a “smart and funny show” by comedian Al Murray.
The author of four novels, Baddiel is also an established writer as well as a television presenter. His work with fellow comedians Rob Newman and Frank Skinner helped to launch his comedy career.
Baddiel worked with Newman on BBC Radio 1’s popular topical comedy programme ‘The Mary Whitehouse Experience‘, which, due to its success, was moved to television.
This series was followed by another show featuring the pair, ‘Newman and Baddiel in Pieces‘. It was so successful that it led to them being the first ever comedians to sell out the Wembley arena.
Baddiel then took Frank Skinner as a lodger in his apartment and a new comedy relationship was born, resulting in the hit television series ‘Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned’ and the number one selling football anthem ‘Three Lions‘ which featured in the UEFA Euro in 1996 and was again relaunched for the 1998 World Cup.
David Baddiel Fame: Not the Musical, comes to Vicar Street on Thursday, March 13th, at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at €23 and can be purchased online, from outlets nationwide or by calling 0818 719 300.
