Little Britain Cast Reforms for Brexit Special

By Gary Cutlack on at

Matt Lucas and David Walliams are friends again now, it would appear, as the two stars of celebrated BBC sketch show Little Britain are reuniting to pick the low-hanging comedy fruit offered by today's political processes, in a one-off special that tells us how Brexit is affecting the lives of the show's main characters. Massively and hilariously, we suspect.

They've actually gone and called it Little Brexit too, so you know what to expect. Original cast members Ruth Jones and Anthony Head are back as well, and Tom Baker is once again providing the celebratorial narration. Oh but to make it easier for everyone this is only happening on the radio, so there won't need to be any dressing up, wigs, or prosthetics, and no one will need to acquire a wheelchair from props.

Little Brexit is scheduled to be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 this Thursday, the day formerly known as Brexit Day, but now back to being mainly about children spitting at old ladies if they don't get a big enough Twix and Channel 5 screening a poor remake of a classic horror film at midnight. [BBC]
