Second in the series of the hilarious 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 massive following, and the book contains exclusive material and photographs.
Little Britain has become Britain's best-loved sketch comedy since The Fast Show – and won both its nominations at this year’s Baftas, taking home the Best Comedy Performance and Best Comedy Series awards. Since the first series was screened, it has 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 is the only gay man in his village (and that’s the way he wants to keep it); Jason is the teenage boy with an unhealthy attraction to his best friend’s granny; Marjorie Dawes is the terrifying FatFighters group leader; Emily Howard, the rubbish transvestite; Bernard Chumley is the ageing theatre actor with a suspicious need to rid himself of his sister; and, of course, Vicky Pollard is the incomparably incoherent young offender.
The show, which has made stars of Matt Lucas and David Walliams, is now into it’s third series and is due for transmission on BBC3 later this year, with repeats on BBC1 in the run-up to Christmas.
Both stars will help to create the Little Britain script book, writing new exclusive material and plenty of unique additional features. The book will be lavishly produced and fully illustrated throughout, and is sure to be an instant classic.
