David Walliams

David Walliams (born David Williams on 20 August 1971) is an English comedian, writer and actor, known for his partnership with Matt Lucas on the sketch show Little Britain and its predecessor Rock Profile. Walliams took up swimming as a youth as his preferred form of exercise, because he was overweight.
