Little Me: My Autobiography by Matt Lucas

Updated: Feb 14, 2020

Summary: Comedian Matt Lucas has graced the stage and screen since the 90s. In Little Me, he recounts his days before fame and his rise to it.

{Free book(s) alert! I received this copy in return for an honest review.}

Review: If you're a terrible American, like me, you might only recognize Matt from his appearances in Bridesmaids or Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Maybe even Doctor Who if you're a nerd. But, apparently, he has been recognizable in the UK since the 1990s.

While I have always enjoyed British comedies like Keeping Up Appearances and Are You Being Served? I had never heard of Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, or Shooting Stars (or the vast majority of British celebrities mentioned). Reading Matt's stories about working with David Walliams and other co-stars, relaying the creation of characters like Lou and Andy or Vicky Pollard (yeah but no but yeah), I found myself YouTubing as many clips as I possibly could.

What I really enjoyed about Matt's autobiography was that he laid it out in alphabetical order instead of chronological. It was like jumping around his life in the Tardis, but without monsters trying to kill you.

Even though Matt went into some of the dark depths of his life from growing up with Alopecia and coming out to friends and family, he kept some things private, which was respectable. This wasn't one of those tell-alls where the author dishes all the dirt. Instead, Matt keeps some things private, which is respectable. After all, it's not People Magazine.

Overall, this autobiography was one of the most enjoyable ones that I have read. Matt's writing style and humor is constantly entertaining. If you like comedy and reading in a British accent, you'll really want to pick up Little Me.
