This is the story of little me, from pudgy, awkward child to pudgy, slightly less awkward adult - via school musicals, adolescent angst, stand-up, Shooting Stars, Little Britain, Doctor Who, love, loss, wigs and giant pink babygros. And, in case your attention span is as short as mine, it comes in a handy A to Z format. So B is for Baldy! (yes, people did shout this at me in the playground), G is for Gay (because I'm an actual real life gay) and I is for Idiot (I was born a berk. I probably even stubbed my toe on the way out).

It will warm your heart, make you snort out loud in public and there's even a catchy song in the middle. What I'm saying is, please buy this book. It is VERY good. I know I'm biased because I wrote it but it is.

Matt Lucas is an award-winning comedian, actor and writer. He started his comedy career in the early nineties, working with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer on The Smell of Reeves, Mortimer and Shooting Stars, where he played giant baby George Dawes, but discovered major success with co-star David Walliams in Little Britain and Come Fly With Me, for which they won three BAFTAs, three NTAs and two International Emmy Awards. Matt received much praise for his work on stage in Les Miserables and has since gone on to feature in many successful films and TV shows, including Alice in Wonderland, Bridesmaids, Paddington, A Midsummer Night's Dream and now Doctor Who.


To be truly unique in this world is almost impossible to achieve; this book is about someone who achieved it. Raw, honest, funny and moving -- JAMES CORDEN A great read . . . it contains a wit and an emotional acuity far above the norm -- DOMINIC MAXWELL * * The Times * * Classy [and] elegant * * Guardian * * Grief isn't the point here. Rather, the book is warmth and joy * * Sunday Times * * If you are looking for a celebrity biography that's honest, funny, cheeky and a really good read, I can recommend Little Me from A-Z * * Sunday Post * * Standing out can be tough, but Matt Lucas is used to that. Being slightly different is just one of the many topics he chats about in this book . . . all handily arranged in A-Z format. Oh, and it's hilarious, too * * Heat * * As you'd expect from the Little Britain creator, it's full of laughs, but it's also an honest, moving read about Matt's experiences of love and loss * * OK! * * Matt is not only hilarious and kind, he's probably the most generous person I know. All of which is wonderfully evident in this book -- REBEL WILSON Brutally honest and brilliantly funny, this book is as brave and warm as the man who wrote it -- GRAHAM NORTON Funny, surprising, sad, authentic, inspirational, honest, stupid -- BOB MORTIMER
