LONDON, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- British television star David Walliams reportedly has made his West End debut in a new production of Harold Pinter's drama "No Man's Land."

Walliams, who is best known for his work on the sketch comedy series "Little Britain," co-stars with Michael Gambon in the Pinter play.

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."

"In at the deep end, but he was wonderful. Brilliant on stage, had a wonderful presence and was perfect for the role," Cooper told Newsbeat of Walliams' debut.
