    It's time to get serious with Britain's favourite funny man - Camp David, by David Walliams. "Will surprise, entertain, and allow fans and newcomers to enter the comic's uniquely brilliant world". ("GQ Magazine"). "Raucously funny and superbly written". ("Heat"). "Hilarious". ("Telegraph"). "A great read. My only criticism is it ended too soon". ("The Sun"). "A fascinating read". ("Star Magazine"). "Brilliantly written". ("Express"). "Fascinating stuff". ("Closer"). "Uproariously great". ("Guardian"). Famous comedian, funniest judge on "Britain's Got Talent", irresistible ladykiller and high-achieving sportsman, David Walliams is a man of many talents. Launched to fame with the record-breaking "Little Britain", his characters - Lou, Florence, Emily, amongst others - became embedded in our shared popular culture. You couldn't enter a playground for a long while without hearing "eh, eh, eh" or "computer says no". Yet Walliams is a mystery. Often described as a bundle of contradictions, he is disarming and enigmatic, playing up his campness one minute and hinting about his depression the next. To read "Camp David" is to be truly shocked, as well as tickled pink, as David Walliams bares his soul like never before and reveals a fascinating and complex mind. This searingly honest autobiography is a true roller-coaster ride of emotions, as this nation's sweetheart unlocks closely guarded secrets that until now have remained hidden in his past. David Walliams is an actor, writer, active fundraiser and - above all - he's a world class comedian who knows how to make us laugh. He performed in and co-wrote the phenomenally successful "Little Britain" and "Come Fly with Me" with Matt Lucas, and recently appeared as a popular judge alongside Simon Cowell on "Britain's Got Talent". He has performed many feats of endurance for charity, and won over the entire country when he swam the Thames for Sports Relief. His bestselling children's books include "Mr Stink", "Gangsta Granny", "Billionaire Boy", "Boy in the Dress" and "Ratburger".
