Written together with friend and journalist Boyd Hilton, this is a look at a year in the lives of Matt Lucas and David Walliamsthe good, the bad, the mundane, and the monumental. The year covered includes a mammoth nine-month Spinal Tap-esque tour where Little Britain goes in search of Great Britain. This milestone book offers an unrivaled close-up of a classic British comedy act, as it happens, at the height of its powers. But it is also a journey into their pasts, reflecting on how they achieved their success. It covers their childhoods, family life, and early comedy performances as they found their feet; their complex friendship and working relationship; and the increasingly insane world they now inhabit. Mixing memoir and travelogue to paint an engrossing portrait of fame and comic genius, Inside Little Britain is a candid look inside the celebrity bubble in all its glamour and awfulness.

He met comedy writing partner David Walliams at the National Youth Theatre, and together they went on to create the cult TV series, Rock Profile, and latterly the phenomenally successful Little Britain.
