We’re looking forward to finally getting the chance to see the fantastic Trolls Not the Dolls tour by comedian David Baddiel – but there are still a few tickets left for his show at the Cresset if you haven’t grabbed yours already.
It follows his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom and of course the summer return to No. 1 of his seminal football anthem Three Lions.
After a bit of a delay David Baddiel takes to the Peterborough stage at last with his new one-man show, Trolls: Not The Dolls on Wednesday September 15 and remaining tickets are £28.50.
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. 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 David Baddiel has consistently broken. Because David 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, David 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.
David has stories to tell, of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths that interacting with trolls has led him down. Come with him on this comedy journey into our culture’s most dank virtual underground. You will come back safe, more able to deflect your own trolls, and only a little bit soiled.
Look out for Sarah Slack's review for ESP after the show.
