Following his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom and the return to number 1 of his seminal football anthem Three LionsDavid Baddiel comes back to the stage with a brand new one-man show, Trolls: Not The Dolls.

Production shot

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.

A laugh-filled show. Baddiel delights in taking on his Twitter trolls.

It’s really, really good, really clever and beautifully put together
- BBC Radio 5 Live
A hilarious evening’s entertainment with belly laughs throughout
- What's On Live

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.

What the critics say

Invigoratingly funny. Baddiel continues his extraordinary run of form as a live comedian as he reprises and reframes his best and worst Twitter encounters. Huge fun it is too
- The Times
The comedian leads us from weird to wonderful to ‘the absolute worst of humanity’ in his new show about social media
- The Guardian
A brilliant evening. Baddiel investigates the horrors of personal assault by social media while managing to keep the room laughing constantly.
- Giles Coren, The Times
