Camp David

Front Cover
Michael Joseph, 2012 - Comedians - 357 pages

Wildly famous comedian, anarchic judge on Britain's Got Talent, and record-breaking long-distance swimmer, David Walliams is a man of many talents. He was launched to fame with the monumentally successful Little Britain, the characters from which have become embedded in our shared popular culture. 'I'm a Lady!', 'Computer says no!' and 'Bitty!' are some of the most famous catchphrases in British comedy.

Yet Walliams is a mystery. Often described as a bundle of contradictions, he is an enigma, playing up his campness one minute and then swimming 140 miles in a filthy river the next.

To read Camp Davidis to be truly shocked, as well as tickled pink - Walliams bares his soul as never before and reveals a fascinating and complex mind. Containing extracts from his deeply private diaries, this extraordinary memoir unlocks many closely guarded secrets that until now have remained hidden in his past.
