Matt Lucas and David Walliams, the creators of this character-comedy sketch show, delight in all that is mad, bad, quirky and generally bonkers about the people and places of Britain.

Storyline

Based on the highly successful Radio 4 series, Little Britain is a hilarious exploration of the British Isles and its curious inhabitants after a successful pilot earlier this year. The programme travels from the Scottish highlands, through Wales, the tranquil English countryside and the less tranquil council estates of Britain's inner cities, while the narrator (Tom Baker) adds his insightful and eloquent comments for those less familiar with these fair Isles Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Student councillor lady: [On the phone, describing the student sat opposite her, who is of restricted growth] You know Paul. Everyone knows Paul. How can I describe him? Shoulder-length brown hair. Wears a lot of jewellery. Looks *up* a lot. Gets his clothes from Mothercare. That's it - the Oompa Loompa.
[Can't see why Paul looks annoyed. Starts humming the Ooompa Loompa song as he stomps out]

Crazy Credits

Every episode of the first series ends with a different farewell message from the narrator and a "world record attempt" sketch. With the second series, the credits roll over the end of a sketch starring Andy and Lou at the end of each episode. The messages from the narrator are still there in the second series. See more »

Alternate Versions

In 2005 the Australian Broadcasting Corporation showed repeat episodes as fillers, condensed to 15 minutes with the title Very Little Britain. See more »

User Reviews

 
Not for the perpetually butthurt.
25 August 2018 | by AndrooUKSee all my reviews

A simple sketch show that takes on stereotypes with interesting angles and some unconventional delivery.

This isn't high brow comedy, but it is not meant to be. It is a lighthearted look at things we don't all want to talk about, or we think but don't say... some are things we do think and talk about. Some things are more abstract.

You can still enjoy this programme today.

If you are perpetually butthurt or politically correct, you will no doubt find plenty to be offended on other people's behalf over. This programme isn't meant for you. You can watch some comedy show where they call *current year* right-wingers or white men names for an hour.
