Each week Walliams will perform a medley of sketches with one other famous face (plus supporting cast) in front of a live studio audience.
The friends for the first series are Harry Enfield, Meera Syal, Jack Whitehall, Sheridan Smith and Miranda Richardson. Also, Hugh Bonneville will appear alongside Walliams in a Christmas special next month.
Walliams & Friend begins on BBC1 on Friday 25 November at 9.30pm
