David Walliams Biography

Comedy writers and performers David Walliams and Matt Lucas are best known for their roles in Little Britain. However David's life achievements stretch well beyond that of comedy. Although available in principle for corporate events, in practice it is often difficult due to Matt and David's very busy schedule. However, when he does find the time, David is fantastic for hosting awards and conducting question and answer sessions.

Little Britain

Little Britain ran from 2003 to 2009 on the BBC in the UK and from 2008 onwards on HBO in the USA. Among the characters David played were Emily Howard, a deluded "transvestite", Ray McCooney, an insane Scottish hotel owner, and Sebastian Love, an aide de camp to the Prime Minister, on whom Love has a huge crush.

Beyond Comedy

In 2006, as David Walliams and Matt Lucas toured Britain with a stage show, Little Britain Live, Walliams managed to fit in two hours of daily swimming training for his cross-channel swim. He swam the English Channel in the same year in 10 hours and 34 minutes, the equivalent of 700 lengths of an Olympic standard swimming pool. In the process he raised over £1 million in charity donations for Sport Relief.

David did not rest here and in 2008 alongside James Cracknell he  swam the 12 miles (19 km) Strait of Gibraltar from Spain to Morocco, again for Sport Relief. Even more recently, David cycled an end-to-end journey through the UK, again raising over £1 million for Sport Relief.

BBC Sports Personality

David was given a special award in the BBC Sports Personality of the Year in recognition of his sporting efforts for charity. Matt Lucas made a documentary of this, entitled Little Britain's Big Swim, which is on the Little Britain Live DVD. David also won The Mirror's "Pride of Britain" Award for the Most Influential Public Figure.

Children's Author

David signed a contract with HarperCollins to publish two children's books. The debut novel, The Boy In The Dress, was released worldwide in 2008.  In 2009 came Mr Stink which won the the Children's Award in the inaugural People's Book Prize. Both books were illustrated by Quentin Blake. In 2010 David released his third book Billionaire Boy.
