David Baddiel

David Baddiel is a US-born British comedian and writer who began his comedy career as a member of Cambridge University's celebrated Footlights society. He began working as a writer during the 1980s, forming a working partnership with Robert Newman, with whom he would become one of the first comedians to perform in arena venues. Following their separation in the early 1990s, he established a new double-act with fellow comic Frank Skinner.
