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

‘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

“Funny, surprising, sad, authentic, inspirational, honest, stupid”

Russell T Davies
