About Syd Little
Syd Little is an entertainer, once the straight man in the double act Little and Large, with Eddie Large. Born in Blackpool, Syd grew up in Manchester.
After leaving Yew Tree Secondary Modern School, Wythenshawe, and working as an interior decorator, Syd started as a singer and guitarist in Manchester pubs before teaming up with Eddie Large. Their double act won Opportunity Knocks in ...1971 and this eventually led to a successful 20 year television career.
The duo's first television pilot was filmed in 1976, and this led to a regular series in 1977. The show was cancelled 14 years later, in 1991. After the cancellation of The Little and Large Show, Syd took life a little easier, appearing occasionally on shows such as Shooting Stars, until 2005 when he took part in the reality television show Trust Me I'm A Holiday Rep.
He also appeared in The Bob Monkhouse Show, Wogan and Comedy Map of Britain.
He can now also be seen in Summer shows across the UK, as well as guest appearances on Cruise Ships and in Panto every Christmas.
In Spring 2015, he appeared on the BBC1 series Celebrity Masterchef.
