London-born David Walliams is a comedian, actor, author and presenter best known for his collaboration with Matt Lucas on the sketch show Little Britain (2003-2006). David studied drama at the University of Bristol and was a member of the National Youth Theatre.
With the exception of the Little Britain tour in 2007, his stage debut wasn’t until 2008 when he starred in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land opposite Michael Gambon at the Gate Theatre, Dublin. David will return to the stage later this year in the comedic role of Bottom in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, part of the Michael Grandage season at the Noel Coward Theatre.
David began his television career writing for shows including The Ant & Dec Show (199-1997) and Barking (1997) before gaining small roles in comedy cult classics including Spaced (1999), Rock Profile (1999-2009), Black Books (2000). David’s break came when he teamed up with Matt Lucas to create Little Britain which ran for three series along with a number of seasonal and charity specials as well as American spin-off Little Britain USA (2008). After winning a slew of awards for Little Britain, including the Comedy Programme or Series at the BAFTA TV award for two consecutive years, David and Matt reunited to create sketch show Come Fly with Me (2010).
David has appeared in a number of comedy feature films including A Cock and Bull Story (2005), Run Fatboy Run (2007), Marmaduke (2010), and also as Pumblechook in Charles Dickens’s coming-of-age drama Great Expectations (2012).Read Less
