Little Britain Live contains just about everything from Little Britain the BBC television series. Leads Matt Lucas and David Walliams along with familiar faces from the series, reenact skit after skit, extracting new scenarios from the characters that have created die-hard fans. Little Britain Live has the twist however, of being a filmed touring theatrical production, and unlike the series, watching this DVD plays like you are an outsider during an inside joke. The actors are playing to a crowded theatre and often over-hamming, which serves to dilute the characters they worked so hard to perfect. They interact with the audience, address the audience, pause during applause, and sometimes break character, which tends to interrupt the skit of the moment. Clearly they chose to run the performance this way, and in person the magic is probably there, but that magic doesn’t transfer well to the impersonal DVD. The stage set-up is impressive, closely mimicking sets from the original program; the costume changes are lightning fast and perfectly timed. Little Britain as a series is a masterpiece of comedy. Little Britain Live is probably best seen live.--Rachel Moss

5.0 out of 5 stars More than you might expect... May 30, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the live version of Little Britain that played on stages around the UK, which means that the performances were uncensored, but not over the top. All of the favorite skits are represented including a cameo from Anthony Head as the Prime Minister. What is more interesting I found was the parallel story of costar David Walliams' training during the stage tour for an attempt to swim the English Channel for charity and his subsequent successful attempt. The DVD is well done with a blend of on-stage performances, off-stage background, and David's training.

5.0 out of 5 stars They excite my tickle bone!!! August 3, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a long time fan of Matt and David's zany characterizations. I prefer British humor to any other in the world! This DVD was the funniest yet! New material not seen in any of their series' episodes was presented during their expertly timed comic performances. They even included unassuming volunteers from the audience in several of their skits and handled other audience hecklers with great aplomb! I laughed all the way though! I won't spoil the end for you, but it goes out with a great big BANG!

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Britain is Fab!!! June 9, 2007
Format:DVD
Matt and David are brilliant. The live show just proves it. I loved seeing the adlibs and bloopers and especially the segment on David swimming the Channel.

On a side, Paul Putner was fabulous in all of the little roles he played. His costume changes were infinitely more complex and faster than some of the others.

For British comedy lovers, this is a must own!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's superb June 26, 2007
Format:DVD
If you Love Little Britain - or British humor - you won't be disappointed. Full of creativity - and simply hilarious. It is brilliant to see skits performed live and the twists that Matt Lucas and David Walliams have come up with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Kerfuffles in a Live Venue July 15, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After reading the previous reviews for this DVD, the only thing I can add is that seeing the little mistakes that always happen in a live production makes these skits even funnier. The camaraderie among the entire cast can be seen in their studio versions but it is even more pronounced in the live version. It wraps up the series and closes out a wonderful period in British humor. It is best to see this one after watching the previous First, Second, and Third Series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny June 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first heard about these guys in Entertainment Weekly a few years ago so I decided to check season 1 DVD out. I loved them and they seemed to get funnier with each season. A must for any British comedy lovers.
This show has many of the same character they do in their regular show but it's Live.
Great stuff.
