Trolls: Not The Dolls

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

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.

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
★★★★
Dominic Maxwell, The Times

The comedian leads us from weird to wonderful to ‘the absolute worst of humanity’ in his new show about social media…hilarious
★★★★
Brian Logan, The Guardian

A laugh-filled show. Baddiel delights in taking on his Twitter trolls.
★★★★
Veronica Lee, The Arts Desk / The i

An astonishing meander through a world of misinformation, bad spelling, and atrocious grammar. Baddiel is gloriously self-deprecating, and pungently funny.….A five-star masterclass.
★★★★★
Phil Penfold, The Yorkshire Post

This show is so funny that, for all the effluent that swills around the Twitter cesspit, it could encourage even the most reluctant among us to sign up. Like!
★★★★
Steve Bennett, Chortle

A brilliant evening, somewhat in the vein of his previous show, My Family: Not the Sitcom. Baddiel investigates the horrors of personal assault by social media while managing to keep a large room laughing constantly.
Giles Coren, The Times
