Matt Lucas is a British comedian best known for writing and starring in the television sketch show Little Britain with David Walliams, as well as for his portrayal of the surreal scorekeeping baby George Dawes in the Reeves and Mortimer comedy panel game Shooting Stars.

He currently stars with Walliams in the mockumentary comedy show Come Fly with Me, which the pair also created, from 2010-2011.

Born and raised in Middlesex, England, Lucas began his comedy career at the age of 18, performing on the London stand-up circuit. He was soon spotted by UK comedian Bob Mortimer, and rose to fame as the giant drumming baby George Dawes on Vic Reeves and Mortimer's surreal quiz show Shooting Stars.

Lucas is best known for creating and starring in the award-winning sketch show Little Britain alongside David Walliams. Having met at the University of Bristol, the pair went on to work together on various TV projects, most notably the spoof interview series Rock Profiles, before hitting the big time with Little Britain.

With its array of grotesque characters, including Lucas's chav teenager, Vicky 'yeah but no but' Pollard, his misanthropic Fat Fighter Marjorie Dawes, and his allegedly wheelchair bound Andy 'I want that one' Pipkin, the show spawned a generation of playground catchphrases and represented a slice of British society at the start of the 21st century.

Lucas has also starred in BBC Three's comedy series Krod Mandoon and The Flaming Sword of Fire as evil dictator Chancellor Dongalor, as well as appearing in CGI-guise as twins Tweedledum and Tweedledee in the hit 2009 international film Alice in Wonderland and voicing a gnome in Gnomeo and Juliet.
