David Baddiel - Jews Don't Count

This event has passed

The comedian and writer David Baddiel’s book Jews Don’t Count is a bestseller. It was The Times Politics Book of The Year 2021. A tightly-written polemic that sets out Baddiel’s view that in the current political climate – with its intense focus on racism and discrimination against all minorities, one minority – the one that has suffered discrimination the longest – has been forgotten. It has been described by Stephen Fry as “a masterpiece.”

Join David for a night of forthright conversation about, and readings from, the book. He will answer all your questions about the subject of modern anti-semitism: and also, if you insist, ones about football.

“Most performers who have a residency somewhere tend to choose Las Vegas. I’ve gone for the much more glamorous Salford. Most performers also have a script. I’m doing without that too, as it will be a totally improvised Q and A. It will be serious, funny, challenging and probably a bit chaotic. Basically Baddiel Talks About Jews Unplanned.”
