Product Description

The hilarious, moving, heart-warming and tear-jerking memoir from one of the world's best-loved comedians and actors, Matt Lucas.

Little Me is the first memoir from comedian, screenwriter and actor Matt Lucas. He is best known for his work with David Walliams in the television show Little Britain, as well as for his portrayals of the scorekeeping baby George Dawes in the comedy panel game Shooting Stars and both Tweedledum and Tweedledee in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. He is also starring alongside Peter Capaldi in the current series of Doctor Who, screening since April 2017.

Matt is a gifted, funny, serious and original writer with a truly unique and moving story, which he will tell for the first time in Little Me: The A to Z of Matt Lucas.

Lucas says: 'From my youth to Shooting Stars, Little Britain, Doctor Who and beyond, I've decided it's time to tell my story.'

'Hello there. Welcome to my autobiography. I see they've made my teeth whiter in the photo, so that's good. Throughout this book I talk about my life and work, including Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, Bridesmaids, Les Miserables, Alice In Wonderland and, of course, Shooting Stars. The thing is, this is a bit different to most memoirs you may have read, because it comes in the form of an A-Z. For instance, B is for Baldy! - which is what people used to shout at me in the playground (not much fun), G is for Gay (because I'm an actual real life gay) and T is for the TARDIS (because I'm a companion in Doctor Who now). You get the sort of thing. Anyway I hope you buy it at least twice. Thank you.'
