David Edward Walliams OBE (born 20 August 1971) is a British actor, comedian, and author. He is perhaps best known for his partnership with Matt Lucas on the BBC One sketch show Little Britain.
In March 2011 Walliams undertook 24 Hour Panel People, in which he took part in back to back recordings of various panel show formats over the course of twenty-four hours to raise money for Comic Relief. The recordings were streamed live on the BBC website. He took part in nineteen episodes of "classic" TV panel shows.
