Press Reviews

Refreshing... perfectly balanced anecdotes... touching moments...Dingli is a master of the stage

Vesna Hauschild

London Pub Theatre Reviews

From the slapstick physical beginning of this self-penned one-man monologue, through to the show’s philosophical conclusion, the laughs come thick and fast in Bad Dad.

Christine Kempell

Delightful... the jokes come thick and fast... elicits laughter from unspectacular moments that are part of the fabric of parenting and yet wouldn’t necessarily lend themselves to comedy...even an anecdote about his daughter’s vomit becomes both chucklesome and charming in equal measure... Bad Dad was so good that one hopes Chris Dingli delivers a sequel very soon.

Deborah Parry

The Reviews Hub, London

A solid hour of detailed, visual storytelling of short anecdotes is filled with highly efficient jokes

Hilariously memorable... had everyone in stitches from the word go... it has been a while since I laughed so much during a theatre performance

Jes Camilleri

Sunday Times, Malta

Many of the biggest laughs come from the amusing turns of phrase perfectly reflecting Dingli’s naivety and bewilderment... The Waltham Cat and I - both lurking around 30, both definitely child-free - found more than enough to laugh at all the way through. This isn’t just a show for new parents... the show’s poignant final scenes chokes you up whether you can directly relate as a parent or not.

Bad Dad proved to be one of the most side- splittingly funny and entertaining performances I have seen in a long time... not to be missed

Andre Delicata

Fantastic. It was funny, clever, serious at times. A play that a parents can relate to. Very well written. Not to be missed.
