5844715David Baddiel: Trolls: Not The Dolls
DateFriday 24th April 2020
DescriptionThe internet, as we know, doesn't have rules and laws, but if it has one, it might be: Don't Feed The Trolls. Don't for goodness sake, encourage these terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than their own souls have huge gaps in them, 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 you get heckled, it is a comedian's duty not to ignore the heckler but to wittily put them down. Over the years he's 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. And also, a bit of a self-help manual. As lots of people get trolled, but not that many people know how to deal with it. David has stories to tell, of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths 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.
