WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Fame: we're obsessed with it, but who will talk honestly about what it's really like? David Baddiel, in his first full Edinburgh show for 15 years, does. From accidentally stealing the spotlight at Russell Brand's wedding, to realising Andrew Lloyd Webber thinks he's Ben Elton, David Baddiel examines his strange relationship with the New Lad / Token Jew / comedy rock'n'roller / football singer/songwriter persona he's co-existed with for 20 years. A 'very funny and thought-provoking' (Veronica Lee, Daily Telegraph) meditation on being (and not being) famous. 'Hilarious and weirdly moving' (Peter Bradshaw, Guardian).
