It's been 16 years since the Baddiel half of Newman & Baddiel last performed a solo stand-up show. But now, following a bunch of work-in-progress shows and an Edinburgh Fringe run, David Baddiel's back on stage with 'Fame: Not the Musical', which is now playing a run at the Menier Chocolate Factory. In the early '90s, Newman & Baddiel were the biggest comedy act in the country, and the first comedians to play (and sell out) Wembley Arena. Since the pair split, Baddiel teamed up with Frank Skinner and the pair became the kings of a new laddish comedy scene, hosting 'Fantasy Football League' and 'Baddiel and Skinner Unplanned'. His new solo show focuses on the bizarreness of fame and dealing with being in the public eye. It might sound pretentious, but it's actually rather interesting, and there are cracking gags among his stories.
