These are the published scripts of the hugely successful series. ‘Little Britain’ is the TV comedy everyone is talking about, and has made instant stars of its creators, Matt Lucas and David Walliams. The show has a cult following, and the books will have material and photographs produced exclusively for the book.
‘Little Britain’ has become Britain's best-loved sketch comedy since ‘The Fast Show’ – at this year’s BAFTAs it won Best Comedy Series or Programme and was nominated for the Best Comedy Performance Award. It has already gone from cult cool to the kind of quotable success that comedy classics are made of.
The characters from ‘Little Britain’ are already household names: Daffyd, the only gay man in his village (and that’s the way he wants to keep it); Jason, the teenage boy with an unhealthy attraction to his best friend’s granny; Marjorie Dawes as the terrifying FatFighters group leader; Emily Howard, the rubbish transvestite; Bernard Chumley, the ageing theatre actor with a suspicious need to rid himself of his sister; and, of course, Vicky Pollard as the incomparably incoherent young offender.
The show has made stars of Matt Lucas – who appeared as overgrown baby George Dawes on BBC Two quiz ‘Shooting Stars’ – and David Walliams, previously seen on the comedy-drama ‘Attachments’ and spoof show ‘Rock Profiles’, alongside Lucas.
Both stars will help create the Little Britain script book, writing new exclusive material and plenty of unique additional features throughout. We will produce a lavish, colour book – illustrated throughout – that will make this book an instant classic.
