Little Brexit, Radio 4, review

This one-off special is an exercise in nostalgia.

Radio review: Little Brexit, Radio 4

I'm not sure if they said it would never happen, but it didn't seem likely to happen. Yet Brexit may not have brought the country together but it did bring Matt Lucas and David Walliams back together for a special one-off Little Britain reunion 20 years after their Radio 4 debut, complete with numerous familiar characters, old cast members and the booming voice of Tom Baker bellowing "Everybody loves Brexit".

Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 31st October 2019

Review: Little Brexit

News that David Walliams and Matt Lucas had reunited after more than a decade sparked mixed reactions - from fans happy that the once all-conquering partnership was returning to those concerned that some elements of their comedy, especially regarding race, would be more troublesome than ever.

Little Britain review: neutered by impartiality rules

The delay to Brexit plus strict pre-election guidelines left few chances for trenchant jokes in David Walliams and Matt Lucas's sketch show.
