‘One of the biggest and most talented comedy stars the UK has ever presented’ – as per the words of Peter Capaldi – comes to Stockport Plaza on Tuesday, October 17.
An award-winning comedian, actor and writer, Matt Lucas is one of the nation’s most recognisable stars.
He started his comedy career in the early nineties, working with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer on The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer and Shooting Stars, where he played giant baby George Dawes, but discovered major success with co-star David Walliams in Little Britain and Come Fly With Me, for which they won three BAFTAs, three NTAs and two International Emmy Awards.
Lucas received much praise for his work onstage in Les Misérables and has since gone on to feature in many successful films and TV shows including Alice in Wonderland, Bridesmaids, Paddington, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and now Doctor Who. This is his story.
He said of his new show: “This is a bit different to most memoirs you may have read, because it comes in the form of an A–Z.
“For instance, B is for Baldy – which is what people used to shout at me in the playground (not much fun), G is for Gay (because I’m an actual real life gay) and T is for TARDIS (because I’m a companion in Doctor Who now). You get the sort of thing.”
Tickets priced at £20 include a copy of his new book, Little Me – My Life from A-Z – or admission-only tickets are available at £5.
Tickets for are available in person from The Plaza box office on Mersey Square in Stockport, by calling the booking line on 0161 477 7779 or by visiting The Plaza website.
