Among those who turned ot to see Walliams make his debut were British comedians Russell Brand and Eddie Izzard, and actor Dominic Cooper, the BBC said.

Izzard told the British broadcaster's Newsbeat program: "I thought they were very good. I love Michael Gambon and he did great, and I thought David Walliams did great, as well."
