Season 1
Little Britain USA

Critics Consensus

The Little Britain troupe can still produce some big laughs after relocating their satirical sketches to America, but the series' gleefully gross humor gives the gags a sour aftertaste.

Critic Reviews for Little Britain USA Season 1

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (18)

Though there's some shock value humor in how awful or disgusting the characters look and act, the concept and the characters start to wear thin within an episode or two.

Little Britain goofs on common folk and reserves its lashes for snobs.

If you don't like comedy that pushes the boundaries of good taste, you have no business here. But the material is presented with enough comic skill, cultural resonance, and clever mockery to rise above.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The setting has changed to the United States and the title expanded to reflect that, but the core of the show is still Matt Lucas and David Walliams working hard for remarkably cheap laughs.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Little Britain USA does a nice job of balancing new material for old fans and recycling popular characters to hook newbies.

Some new comedies try to be as outré, but none of them are as clever. Forbidden territory in our society keeps shrinking. Sometimes, it's wiser to let the land lie fallow.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Watching comedy shouldn't also invoke a paralyzing fear of being disgusted.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

The easily offended should steer clear, but viewers with an appreciation for outrageous humor are likely to have a good laugh.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

American fans of the original Little Britain don't need to worry: A transatlantic move hasn't dulled the duo's work.

Sep 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I was cackling like mad through most of the program.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Except for the canned laughter and tendency toward crude humor, it's mostly quite winning, crowned as it is by the pithy observations of the same announcer as the British show, Tom Baker.

Sep 11, 2019 | Full Review…

It's crude, it's crass, it's outrageous, but if that's your thing, Little Britain USA should be a welcome addition to your Sunday night viewing.
