Written together with friend and journalist Boyd Hilton, the audiobook follows a year in the lives of Matt Lucas and David Walliams in every unfiltered detail: the good, the bad, the mundane and the meaningful. It is a year that includes writing, rehearsing, filming, Live8, going to America, and undertaking a mammoth 100-date, seven-month tour where Little Britain goes in search of Great Britain. They visit the places that have inspired their best-loved characters and also formed each of them personally, from where they grew up to university and drama school. Reflecting on how they got from there to here, they look back on a journey from cult comedy success to rock-star levels of celebrity; a new world where magazines are constantly fighting for access to them and the tabloids obsess about every detail of their private lives. It will cover their childhoods, family life, and early comedy performances as they found their feet; their complex friendship and working relationship; and the increasingly insane celebrity bubble they live in, where the likes of Robbie Williams and Elton John are desperate to work with them. An essential audiobook for all fans of two of our country's funniest, most consistently inventive comedians.
