In this episode of How I Got There, Matt is joined by comedian David Baddiel. His career started in the mid 80's and followed on from a well-trodden path of Cambridge footlights to professional performer. This route wasn't quite as easy by the time of the alternative comedy circuit though, and when he called the comedy store and announced himself as vice president of footlights, they put the phone down on him. He still managed to become the first 'rock star comedian' with Rob Newman selling out Wembley Arena. His second comedy partner was Frank Skinner, and together they wrote the most successful English football song 'Three Lions' along with the Lightning seeds. Hear why David ended up renting a room to Frank Skinner for 6 years for £40 a week despite Frank becoming 'super famous'.
