Matt Lucas, one of Britain's best-loved comedians and actors, speaks about his memoir. Chaired by comedy historian Robert Ross.
'The thing is, this is a bit different to most memoirs you may have read, because it comes in the form of an A–Z. For instance, B is for Baldy! – which is what people used to shout at me in the playground (not much fun), G is for Gay (because I’m an actual real life gay) and T is for TARDIS (because I’m a companion in Doctor Who now). You get the sort of thing.'
An award-winning comedian, actor and writer, Matt Lucas is one of the nation’s most recognisable stars. He started his comedy career in the early 90s, working with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer on The Smell of Reeves and 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. He received praise for his on-stage work in Les Misérables 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.
