Classic Interview: Matt Lucas & David Walliams – Little Britain

With Matt Lucas back on the box with Pompidou and David Walliams rarely out of the limelight it seems like a good time to revisit this interview. I spoke to the duo for the Reader's Digest in 2007 just as Little Britain was going stratospheric. We met in a Greek restaurant in East London but the lunch was very rushed as they had an important meeting at BBC TV Centre, which was in West London in those days. I shared a cab with them across town and we continued the interview in transit. They were both very good company.

Review: Pompidou, BBC2

Matt Lucas was on Jonathan Ross recently comparing his new series to the children’s show Pingu. Like Pingu the characters here speak in a kind of nonsensical, noisy gibberish. We can tell when Lucas’s down-at-hell aristo is sad, happy, hungry or deliriously delighted just by the sounds he is making.


TV Review: Backchat, BBC3

People might criticise Jack Whitehall for all sorts of things, but you can't knock his work ethic. On Monday night he was simultaneously guest-hosting Never Mind The Buzzcocks on BBC2 and putting in a star turn on C4 in Fresh Meat. And tonight he made it three channels in three nights with the first episode of Backchat on BBC3. In fact his stand-up show was on BBC3 at 9pm tonight too, making it something of a Jack Whitehall love-in.

Opinion: Isn't All Comedy Character Comedy?

I think the first modern example of character comedy I ever saw was Edna Everage, followed shortly by John Shuttleworth about two decades ago. After him there seemed to be a flurry of weird eccentrics on the circuit from the Pub Landlord to Otis Lee Crenshaw via Count Arthur Strong.
