The Therapy Crouch

David Walliams Talks Swimming the Channel, Austin Powers, Matt Lucas and Astrochimp!

May 14, 2024

On today’s episode of The Therapy Crouch, Abbey and Pete are joined by actor, comedian and children’s author David Walliams who heard us shouting him out on a previous pod and decided to pop onto the couch for a chat!

David talks about his massive success in the world of children’s literature, his literary inspirations and why writing two books is never the same process.

He also weighs in on Abbey’s debut novel ‘Remember my name’ and gives a very special reading of the prologue which now has Abbey pondering if we should get this re released as an audio book!

In the Agony Ab section, we have a Shallow Hal-esqu scenario featuring a boyfriend who is getting worried about his girlfriend waistline woes and we have some very direct advice for a listener whose girls trip is in jeopardy due to the addition of some unwanted plus ones!
