Little Britain has become Britain's best-loved sketch comedy since The Fast Show â€“ and won both its nominations at this yearâ€™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 thatâ€™s the way he wants to keep it); Jason is the teenage boy with an unhealthy attraction to his best friendâ€™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.

Matt Lucas and David Walliams met in 1990 at the National Youth Theatre and were brought together by their shared love of Reeves and Mortimer. When Matt began university, they went their separate ways but remained friends. In 1995 they teamed up to take their Sir Bernard Chumley and Friends show to the Edinburgh Festival, returning with new Chumley shows in 1996 and 1997. Following this success, they embarked on a sell-out UK tour throughout 1997 and appeared in 1999 at the Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada.More About Matt Lucas and David Walliams
