9780002740142: Little Goes a Long Way: My Own Story

Few comedy duos have brought more laughter to so many people as Little and Large. Now one half of the act tells his own moving story of a small town boy made good including great personal success and intense private sorrow.

This moving autobiography captures all the fun and laughter of one of the best loved entertainers today. With his controversial partner Eddie Large, Syd Little has broken all box office records and experienced prosperity that he could never have dreamed of as a Lancashire boy.

Little Goes a Long Way celebrates a life given to the enjoyment of others. But it also tells of a double blow which literally drove him to his knees. First his only son framed Little in a drugs deal reported in the Sun newspaper. He was later found dead from an overdose. Shortly afterwards his daughter almost died after a vicious knife attack by an ex-boyfriend. Both events happened in 1992.

These tragedies were a turning point in Little’s life. He refound his faith in God and embarked on a new journey of self discovery and ultimate fulfilment.

From the Back Cover:

LITTLE AND LARGE – MY OWN STORY

Few comedy duos have bought more pleasure to more people than Little and Large. From their long running television series to their frequent live performances, millions have grown up with their unique brand of humour.

Syd Little has risen to the pinnacle of show business, but came from very ordinary roots. Along the way he has worked with the very best entertainers. How he did this, and came to appear in possibly the most watched Royal Variety Performance ever, is an extraordinary story.

Success and laughter have only been half of it. Syd has had more than his fair share of tragedy and tears. His son's tragic battle with drugs and other personal struggles have been as tough to bear as they are dramatic. Now he tells for the first time the secret of how he made it through.

Both tears and smiles are to be had in this inside story from one half of a great comedy institution.
