David Walliams (Author)

Alongside Matt Lucas, David created and starred in sketch comedy Little Britain, which won three BAFTA awards and has gone on to air in over 100 countries. That was followed by one of the most watched comedies of all time on British television, Come Fly With Me

David was a judge on Britain’s Got Talent for ten years and won numerous National TV Awards for Best TV Judge. On film he has starred in Stardust, Dinner For Schmucks and Murder Mystery. He provided vocals for the Oscar-nominated animation Missing Link

Alongside his acting and writing, David swam the English Channel in 2006 and the length of the Thames in 2011, raising over £1 million and £2.5 million for Sport Relief respectively.

A best-selling children’s author with 39 titles to his name and global sales exceeding 53 million copies, David’s books have now been translated into 55 languages. Many of his titles have been adapted for television and the stage including the Olivier Award nominated Gangsta Granny and Billionaire Boy by the Birmingham Stage Company and the hugely acclaimed Royal Shakespeare Company musical of The Boy in the Dress. Others are being developed as feature films or animation series.
