πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸ˜† Happy Birthday David! πŸ˜†πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽ

Wishing one of my favourite funny guys, David Walliams, a fantastic 49th Birthday. His appearances as a judge on 'Britain's Got Talent' made it funnier to watch than ever, and as for 'Little Britain', if I've been out and cast my mind back to some of their sketches, I've suddenly burst out laughing... πŸ˜‚
People must have thought I was nuts!

6ft2.5 πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸŽŠπŸ»πŸ°

It’s interesting that he describes himself as 6’2”!

Does Jack Whitehall look closer to 6ft 2 with him here rob pr maybe David has lost a fraction in height at 48?
Miss Sandy Cowell said on 20/Aug/19
πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸ˜‚ Many Happy Returns David! πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ

David celebrates his 48th Birthday today. Congratulations and have a great day, you funny sausage! πŸ˜πŸŒπŸ˜†

I wouldn't go under 189cm as he look 13cm shorter than Peter Crouch.
Damon Blank said on 30/Apr/19
He's be about 6 ft 2 (188 cm) at low. At best he'd be about 189 cm in the morning. Possibly 188.6 cm (6 ft 2 1/4) during the day.
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18
Next to his comedy partner, Matt Lucas, David Walliams is a very much taller example of a 'large' when I think of all the classic 'Little and Large' couplings
through the decades of comical duos!

Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 13/Oct/18
Def a taller 6'2.5" than Ashton Kutcher.
Mike5 said on 18/Sep/18
Also, wonder who would measure up tallest and shortest (barefoot) between Walliams, Ryan Reynolds and Ashton Kutcher
Mike5 said on 18/Sep/18
No more than 6’2.5” and he’s probably gonna be one of those people that’s actually closer to 6’2 than 6’3
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Aug/18
I have just heard him in a TV advert for Google asking, "What's the best way to remove paint from a cat?"

He even brings comedy to his adverts - and I love it!

David gets 6ft2.5.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 2/Jul/18
More he look fraction over this listing. He really isn't over it.
berta said on 29/Apr/18
i think he is the listed height ore 1/4 under it.
QM6'1QM said on 22/Mar/18
1,5in taller than Mark Gatiss = 189 cm/ 6'2.5".
Junior said on 9/Jan/18
Def not taller than Ryan Reynolds and would be interesting to see them barefoot standing back to back.
Ana said on 7/Oct/17
I love his height... i'm tall for my age (13 and i am 5'9"...Helps with basketball though) too and it helps to know that one of my heroes is tall like me.
Christian-6'5 3/8 said on 5/Oct/17
He's not legit 6'3", or else he would've claimed it.
Anonymous said on 4/Oct/17
I think he is six foot three inches
ade rusmiati said on 30/Jun/17
You are very tall man
Dean said on 30/Jun/17
Looked almost 6'3 in CFWM
Christian-196.5cm (6ft5 3/8) said on 25/Apr/17
Williams is a part of the minority of people who round down the half-inch instead of rounding up like the majority.
Joanna said on 14/Apr/17
Rob do you think he pulls off a 6 foot 3 sometimes I seen him on BGT next to Simon cowell and he towers over him by a good 6 inches is there a possibility of an upgrade to 191cm 6"2.5 seems to low when you look at him. He is a giant!
Editor Rob: yes, sometimes you think he can pass for 6ft 3, but I still feel he is just under the mark.
Chris said on 5/Feb/17
Solid 6 inch difference between Simon and him
Rory said on 11/Oct/16
Another guy I saw up close and Yh looked over 6'2, and near 6'3.
Sandy Cowell said on 11/Oct/16
One of the funniest guys on TV today. He has afforded me so much gut-wrenching laughter and I have a sneaking suspicion that there'll be plenty more to come! Being so much taller than his comedy partner Matt Lucas adds to the comedic value I think, as so many double acts have proved over the years. He's hilarious in Britain's Got Talent as well!
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 22/May/15
189-190cm range is likely.
James B said on 21/Mar/14
Well if Gary linker is still 5'9.5 then David looked just about 6ft3 tonight on sport relief
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 8/Jan/14
"David Walliams height: 6ft 2.75in (190cm)"

Gives a bigger impression on Little Britain
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jun/13
There's your proof that Johno is a troll. Walliams is about as a legit a 6 ft 2 guy as you can get and he's still claiming under 6'2". Johno you're a joke.
teej said on 26/May/13
He is a legit 6foot2, more close to 6ft3.
johno said on 27/Apr/13
6'1.5 - 6'2
Xior said on 23/Apr/13
Could be a legit 6'2", take or leave half an inch. Either way, tall guy. Great guy too.
James said on 18/Feb/13
Like Ashton kutcher can look 6'3
James said on 16/Feb/13
190cm possible rob?
[Editor Rob: there are a bunch of photos out there of david with someone who we've seen measured - erin o'connor who is 185cm, he can look from 6ft 2 up to 3 against her...]
Jamesy said on 1/Feb/13
The sun described him as 6'2 recently
[Editor Rob: he does claim he's 6ft 3.]

Rylan Clark is indeed a legit 6'4" as I'd estimated. 1.5 inches on Walliams.
J.J. said on 14/Nov/12
Rob what you think Lara Stone is?
6'2" & 5'10" or 6'2.5" & 5'10"

greg said on 17/Oct/12
Would agree with others about him being closer to 6'3"; quite noticeably taller than Jonathon Ross on his show a few days ago (and Ross looked over 6'1" when I bumped into him a few years ago).
Dan said on 6/Feb/12
I met him and shook his hand at the BGT auditions in Cardiff and we were eye to eye and I'm 6' bare foot and just over 6' 1" in the trainers I was wearing. He was wearing smart shoes with his suit that appeared to have a slight heel
Shaun said on 4/Nov/11
Barefoot next to James Cracknell this guy looks 190cm.

hs2011 says on 22/May/11
Didn't look over his 6'2" claim with legit 6'4" Jamie Theakston on Little Britain.

188cm is bang on for Walliams IMO.

I suspect that Theakston is actually a little more than 6'4" like Darius Danesh and they both downgrade by half an inch.
Andy said on 23/Oct/11
Just seen him on a british tv game show with Will Ferrell who is 6'3 and they were pretty much the same height so 6ft2.5 would be correct for him.
johno said on 10/Oct/11
On more a careful inspection, i like to revise that to 6'0 - 6'0.5 for walliams
johno said on 10/Oct/11
Sorry mateys, he was not a full 3 inches taller then the 5'9 alan carr on the ''chatty man''. Based on a 5'9 alan carr, walliams 5'11.5. If anyone wants to argue any different, then search for the interview and you will see what i mean.
James said on 4/Sep/11
he's not 6'3 or 6'4. 6'2.5 is fine.

6'4 is ridicolous.
marshall init said on 13/Jun/11
i thought e was like 6 foot 4 init
Lenad said on 4/Jun/11
I think he flactulates between 189 and 190cm. He looks too tall to be under 6'2
hs2011 said on 22/May/11

Shaun said on 22/Apr/11
Walliams looks 6'3" in just about every pic, looked it next to James Cracknell, Vernon Kay, Josh Hartnett, David Schwimmer. I agree with Rampage this guy is around 190 legit. Closer to 6'3 than 6'2" for sure.
James said on 3/Feb/11
No more than 6'2
Doug said on 29/May/09
Was only about half an inch shorter than James Cracknell barefoot in wetsuits who claims 6'4". However the rowing website says Cracknell is 6'3" and Cracknell never looks 6'4" in my view. So Walliams at 6'2.5" and Cracknell at 6'3" makes sense. Cracknell is probably 6'4" in shoes but not barefoot.
Ian said on 8/Mar/09
David walliams is a strong 6ft2 barefoot but no 6ft3. True 6ft2 people are tall. Not those phoney 6ft2 in shoes people.
Andrew said on 8/Mar/09
Look here:

Lauren Budd is 6 foot and she's wearing 4 inch heels in those pictures. That would make her 6ft4. Walliams is dwarfed and must be no more than 6ft2.
_-_-_-Hugh-_-_-_/ said on 8/Mar/09
Should be 6ft3 (191cm) no more, no less.
sam said on 22/Feb/09
He was nearly the same height as Harry Lennix on Little Britain USA. Lennix is at least 6'3", probably close to 6'4".
Doug said on 14/Feb/09
By the guy Theakston is undoubtedly taller than 6'4". He is ashamed of his height so downgrades. Theakston has always been nearer 6'5" I'm sure. So a 2 inch difference wouldn't be unimaginable.
Doug said on 14/Feb/09
He is about half an inch shorter than James Cracknell who I believe isn't quite the 6'4" barefoot that he claims, Cracknell is listed as 6'3" on the rowing website. I would buy 6'3.5" for Cracknell. Compared to supposed 6'4" guys Walliams looks to be easily in the 6'3" range it has to be said.
Doug said on 14/Feb/09
I think he looks nearer 6'3".
Ian said on 27/Jan/09
Wallams slouches.

Click Here

The thing I notice with walliams is that with shoes on he's 2 inches of the top of UK door frame(6ft6) so that makes him 6ft4 in shoes. Take off 1.5" max for shoes+insoles+socks etc. Yeah it all counts socks too. That's 6ft2.5 We have a good match here 6ft2.5 he is.
Sophia said on 23/Jan/09
Blimey! that's nearly as tall as James
Ry said on 14/Jan/09
I'm pretty sure he slouches.

-in an episode of Little Britain Emily Howard was in a police line up and "she" was well over 6 ft 6 (with the hair). So I'd say he's probably closer to 6 ft 4
Ian said on 31/Dec/08
He is way taller than David Schwimmer.Walliams is slouching. 6ft2.5 seems good for Walliams but it's curtains to a 6ft 2 Schwimmer with this picture (who's 6ft in my opinion)

I heard he was 6ft3... but they could have been rounding up.

He looks taller than Harry Lennix whos i think is around 6 ft 4 in this clip

6ft 2.5 is about right, hes in ireland at the moment doing a play here.
i walked past him on grafton street and hes at least an inch and a half shorter than me or more.
im exactly 6ft 4 (193cm) in my barefeet and i was wearing vans shoes that day,he was wearing converse so shouldnt have been much footwear difference between us.

Next to Vernan kay. He looks taller than 6ft2.5 but he is standing further forward.
Daii said on 7/Aug/08
I would say 6'3, he towers over 5'6 Matt, and in Run Fatboy Run there is a scene where simon pegg nudges past him and 5'9 is a good 5 inches shorter at least. 6'3 for walliams
Drexyl said on 21/Jul/08
Clearly he's taller than 6,2.5". I'd say he was closer to 6,4".
Jasper said on 2/Jul/08
@ Amelia

Are you blind? Clarckson was at least 1 or 2 cm taller in the interview...
MAC said on 16/Mar/08
He looked to be a similar height to 6'4" former olympic rower James Cracknell: Click Here
Demo said on 17/Jan/08
I saw Walliams on Top Gear, and was almost taller than legit 6'5" Jeremy Clarkson- was he wearing lifts maybe? Anyway, judge for yourself the interview's on Youtube.
Greg said on 19/Oct/07
If Walliams is 6ft.05 he must have some ridiculous lifts!
paul said on 13/Oct/07
David Walliams is UNDER 6ft 1, i recently saw him getting an interview with a English presenter Rick Edwards who is listed as 6ft 1 and surely if he was taller it would be listed as more, walliams is about 6'0.5, positive about it
Amelia said on 21/Sep/07
I've seen the top gear interview and, to be honest, david walliams looks exactly jeremy clarksons height (6ft 5" apparently) maybe about half a centimetre taller - he's a very tall guy
gorgeous too =)
anonymous said on 19/Jul/07
I saw Walliams standing next to Jimmy Carr who is 6ft and David was at least 3 inches taller. David Walliams is great, very camp but so sexy!
ian said on 22/Jun/07
ive seen re runs of that top gear episode several times and he was not on eye level with clarkson, there was at least a couple of inches difference, maybe 3" which i was surprised at as i always thought walliams was very tall
OutBenchThis said on 6/Jun/07
Why would Walliams say on his site he's 6'2" if he's 6'3"-6'4" ? He's a big 6'2" but he isn't 6'3-6-4"..Clarkson is likely to be a solid 6'3" too, not 6'4" or so.
Geo said on 21/Mar/07
I've met him! He's at least 6'3!
Anonymous said on 31/Dec/06
seems 6ft 3.5 next to clarkson or 6tt 3

I'll second the Top Gear thing. He and Clarkson were right at level.

TheMan said on 25/Feb/06
Yeah compared to theakston he looked about 6,1.5. Could of been ground though i mean he does look 6,2 or something but he was indeed 3 inches shorter than Theakston. I put it down to all the short people in the cast i mean with that other guy he always looks tall maybe people then begin to belive he really is much taller than he is like 6,3-6,4. And again im sure he was a similer height to ross or maybe 1cm taller.
Alan said on 24/Feb/06
I guess he is smaller than 6'2.5''. Has anyone else seen that episode of Little Britain? Walliams looked much more than 1.5'' shorter than Theakston.
Anonymous said on 5/Jan/06
No way is he less than 6'2''. Theakston is a big 6'4''.
TheMan said on 1/Jan/06
Yeah don't get me wrong he looks tall and is but theres that guy who confirmed himself as 6,4 and he just was nowhere near him if only i could remember he's name. Ah got he's name Jamie Theakston also did presenting on live and kicking. He's 6,4 confirmed it on jhonathon ross. Ross even had to say about he's height. But i was quite surprised how much he towered over willaims even i thought he'd be nearer. See i thought Willaims was abit taller than Ross say 6,2 but i saw the children and need thing and he was about the same height but i can't be sure. But he's deffently not 6,3. Hopefully someone else whos seen it can also confirm it.
TheMan said on 31/Dec/05
100% know he's not 6,3 more like high 6,1 this is becuase on one little britian episode the 6,4 forget he's name stood right up to him. You know that radio host did the presenting on with a little help from my friends. He was alteast 2 maybe 3 inches over williams and he confirmed he's height on johnathon ross as 6,4. If only i could remember he's name. Anyway saw him next to johnathon ross similer heights maybe only half and inch taller. And that 6,4 guy im talking about dwarfted ross and williams.

[Editor Rob: ah, I was going to come back to this guy...because when someone said he's supposed to have said he's 6ft 2...I couldn't find this quote though...but it might be closer to the truth.

he's done a lot of scenes with Anthony Stuart Head, sometimes looks just 1-inch taller, other times he looks genuine 6ft 3 guy...but then the other tall black guy who appears in those scenes (the one who kissed Anthony Stewart) looks very tall! He does look 3 inches taller.

And Habib Nasib Nader is listed 6ft 5 by his agency]
Anonymous said on 15/Jun/05
he says on the little britain website that he's 6'2. matt lucas is small than 5'7 though, i'd say more like 5'6.
