Walliams studied drama at the University of Bristol from 1989 to 1992. ... small williams changed his name to walliams when he joined the actors' trade union Equity, as there was already a member named David Williams. Walliams took up swimming as a youth as his preferred from of exercise, because he was overweight. On July 4th 2006 after about 9 months training, he swam the English Channel for charity Sport Relief and raised about one million pounds. Walliams was given a special award in recognition of his sporting efforts for charity. Matt Lucas made a documentary of this entitled Little Britain's Big Swim, which is on DVD.

Here are some pictures of david walliams: Here is three short sketch from one of David Walliams sketches in Little Britain. Why I chose to write about my author I chose to
write about
David Walliams because
I enjoyed his books so I thought
that it was going to be fun doing
my author project set on David Walliams.
Though the project was harder than I thought. What I like and dislike about my author I like that David Walliams books are fun
to read. Because he has made comedi
for children.
What I dislike about my author is that
he hasen't written any more books, but
I hope he will writie some more books in
the future. I also dislike that David
Walliams has made his books so fun to
read that you can't stop reading!
So I do warn you!!! Walliams writes his books in a funny and realistic style. It is like it could happen in real life and not just made up like Harry Potter or Charlie and the chocolate factory. His books are both recommended for girls and boys.
He writes about people who are
not the luckiest people and not
the most succesful people. Mr Stink is about 12-year-old Chloe who makes friends with a tramp called "Mr Stink" a local tramp. Mr Stink really smells. Then when it looks like he might
be driven out of town,
Chloe decides to hide him
in the garden shed. Now
Chloe's got to make sure no one finds out her secret. Speaking of secrets every one has one even Mr Stink . . . I like the book Mr Stink because it
teaches you that you should not be afraid to stand up to bullies.
The book is a little bitt sad at some times. Who would enjoy reading Walliams books I would recommend Walliams books to 8 and up because his
books are so fun that even adults will enjoy his books,
though they are children books, so they are probably ment
for children. I do especially like the book Mr Stink as it is
full of fun for everyone. I wish Walliams had written more
books than just 4, if he writes any more books I will like
to read it :-)
