David Baddiel: Fame Not the Musical at the Southbank Centre
One of the most highly-anticipated and well-received shows at the Fringe this year, David Baddiel presents a show – half stand up, half talk – about the realities of fame, and the disillusionment of being not quite as famous now as you once were. Incredibly interesting, profound and very funny – a must see.
