For starters, I think it is always important to take a look at the formative years of the celebrity in consideration. It often helps the readers to get a better understanding as about how he or she turned out to be a person he/she is today. So speaking about David, I think that the person (or should I say character?) who had the greatest influence on him (aside from his family, of course) was Tom Becker, the actor who played a title role on television series Doctor Who. While speaking about this show Walliams has said: “Tom Baker cast a huge spell over me as a child. I used to watch it with my dad and spent hour upon hour in the playground dissecting that week’s cliffhanger – “How on earth will the Doctor get out of this one?” The Doctor is a great role model because he uses his mind rather than his fists to win. It’s such a British institution because it celebrates eccentricity, not good-looking action heroes.“ So I think it was this character that taught David to rely on things other than physical strength and beauty in his own life. And who knows, maybe if it was not for this lesson David Walliams net worth would never have reached such impressive heights.
Now speaking about his adult life, David Walliams net worth started to grow in the late 1990s, when he and Matt Lucas began writing and starring in British TV comedy show Rock Profile. The show ran for three seasons and during this this period the comedy partnership managed to build a considerable fan base. In 2003 Matt and David started working on yet another television comedy series, Little Britain. Even though the show‘s second and third season received severe criticism for impolite (to put it mildly) treatment of minority groups, the show was successful. As for the day, there is a long list of merchandise relating to the television series Little Britain, including audiobooks (such as Little Britain: On Radio), DVD‘s (for example, Little Britain: Comic Relief Does Little Britain Live) and books (the first of them being Little Britain: The Complete Scripts and Stuff: Series One). As for the day, the most important sources of David Walliams net worth are the paychecks for his work on television shows Comic Relief and Big School.
