Based on a highly successful Radio 4 series, Little Britain has a mix of character-based funny sketches written and performed by Matt Lucas and David Walliams. It also features special guest stars including Anthony Head and Tom Baker as narrator.
Shot both on location and in front of a studio audience, Little Britain looks at the breathtaking debris of modern life and all that makes Britain, Britain. Critics have lined up to heap unanimous praise on Lucas and Walliams with the show being described in turn as “legendary” and “catchphrase comedy at its very best… with characters that are surely destined to enter the comedy pantheon”. It was a case of “champagne for everyone” as the show won a raft of awards, including two Baftas for Best Comedy Performance and Best Programme or Series, and the prestigious Rose d’Or – as well as a clutch of British Comedy Awards.
