Little Me

The A-Z of Matt Lucas

Matt Lucas

I’ve decided to open with ‘Hello’, and then, even if you don’t care for anything that comes after that, at least you’ll say I was well mannered

The hilarious, heart-warming and tear-jerking memoir from one of Britain’s best-loved comedians and actors, Matt Lucas

The hilarious, heart-warming and tear-jerking memoir from one of Britain’s best-loved comedians and actors, Matt Lucas

‘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.’


“To be truly unique in this world is almost impossible to achieve; this book is about someone who achieved it. Raw, honest, funny and moving”
James Corden

“Even when he’s baring his soul, Matt’s still hilarious - we’d expect nothing less”
ok!

“Standing out can be tough, but Matt Lucas is used to that. Being slightly different is just one of the many topics he chats about in this book … all handily arranged in A-Z format. Oh, and it’s hilarious, too”

“Matt is not only hilarious and kind, he’s probably the most generous person I know. All of which is wonderfully evident in this book”
Rebel Wilson
