Little Britain Costumes & Fancy Dress Reviews
Little Britain Costumes
We are proud to present costumes and accessories based on the hilarious, and deeply disturbed, comedy series Little Britain.
Little Britain is a character-based comedy sketch show first appearing on BBC radio and then television. It was written by and stars Matt Lucas and David Walliams. Its title is an amalgamation of the terms 'Little England' and 'Great Britain', and is also the name of a Victorian neighbourhood and modern street in London.
The show comprises sketches involving exaggerated parodies of British people from all walks of life in various situations familiar to the British. These sketches are presented to the viewer together with narration in a manner which suggests that the programme is a guide - aimed at non-British people - to the ways of life of various classes of British society. Despite the narrator's description of great British institutions, the comedy is derived from the British audience's self-deprecating understanding of either themselves or people known to them.
An American version of the series, entitled Little Britain USA was created as a spin-off. The spin-off series is being shown on HBO in the USA, and in Canada on The Movie Network.
Many of the characters on the show have their own often-repeated catchphrases. Many have become well-known in the United Kingdom, and the show has gained a mainstream following.
