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.

Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection
- The Guardian
A show that bubbles with love and unexpected joie de vivre
- The Telegraph
Rare to see one that draws its subject as honestly, vividly and humorously as this
- The i

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.

Hugely funny…If you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly
