Wall Of Fame – David Walliams Takes It Hard And Fast Up The Twitter

by | 8th, July 2011

I GOT a chance to watch David Walliams, the UK’s official gay-for-pay ambassador (after Russell Brand) hosting his new tabloid panel show, Wall Of Fame on SKY 1 HD.

Essentially, David is a dry, hetero-flexible host with good punchlines and visual jokes, like his burning cactus (that is not an STI reference).

This is completely new territory for Walliams. Viewers see a new side to him – the strategic, driven and focused star drawing the panel and his guests out into the pop cultural fray to take the piss. He adds class to the usual news quiz format.

My attention was held as the wall of 25 photos and videos lit up and flickered. David acted queer and special guests Billie Piper and Mrs. Robinson-esque political wife Sally Bercow added to the impression of watching the lounge at a suburban party of city emigrants.

The panel of regulars benefits from well known comedians Jack Dee and delightfully wicked (and even better un-edited) Irish loose cannon Andrew Maxwell. Being a David Walliams show, there’s also some eye-candy in the way of the UK’s version of Paris Hilton, Tamara Ecclestone, who’s perfectly symmetrical cleavage is worthy of it own series on BBC3.

You find yourself curious which celeb brought Michael Jackson’s bed sheets (it was Jedward) and who’s hot on twitter for the most bizarre reasons. It’s all revealed on the wall and thoroughly mocked by the panel.

Verdict: If you like light entertainment weighted down by tanned cleavage, you’ll enjoy Wall Of Fame –
