Matt Lucas

Matthew Richard Lucas (born 5 March 1974) is an English comedian, writer and actor. He is perhaps best known for his acclaimed work with David Walliams in the television show Little Britain and spoof interview series Rock Profile, as well as for his portrayal of the surreal scorekeeping baby George Dawes in the Reeves and Mortimer comedy panel game Shooting Stars. Lucas can currently be seen as Chancellor Donold David Dongalor, on the Comedy Central series Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire.

In May 2007, Lucas was placed 8th in the list of the UK's 100 most influential gays and lesbians, in fields as diverse as entertainment, business, politics, and science, by the British newspapers The Independent and the Daily Mail.

Born in Paddington, Lucas comes from a Jewish family and grew up in Stanmore, Greater London. He has had alopecia since his childhood, which in interviews he has inconsistently attributed to various events, including a delayed reaction to a road accident when he was four. He lost all of his hair at the age of six.
