Product Description

Product Description

They are Britain’s best-loved comedians. This unauthorised biography gives the low-down on the men behind the laughter.

When Little Britain appeared on our screens, a series of characters was born that would make a nation laugh like no other British comedy in recent years. With its hilarious mocking of British clichés and stereotypes, it was not long before its catchphrases were being quoted in every home, playground and office across the land. And it was all down to the comedy genius of the inspired duo that is Matt Lucas and David Walliams.

All of a sudden, two relatively little-known comedians became the nation’s entertainment heroes, shooting straight to the A-list of Britain’s most wanted TV celebrities. Although such success was new to them, Matt and David’s creativity led them to write two more astonishingly successful series, earning them countless industry accolades, numerous British comedy awards and two Baftas.

But behind the sketches lie two fascinating individuals whose work in comedy goes way back – Matt and David met in 1990, drawn together by a mutual love for Reeves and Mortimer – and whose life stories provide a fascinating and hilarious insight into what has inspired them to produce some of the finest laughs in the history of British comedy. In this insightful and brilliantly researched biography, Neil Simpson traces their development from boys to men, revealing much about their off-screen lives along the way, and setting the record straight on the various rumours (many of them true!) that have grown around the pair.

Kings of Comedy is a fascinating portrait of two men without whose comic creations Britain would be a lot less funny place to live.
