Eddie Izzard

Comic ambassador of free association, public advocate for language acquisition, stylish cross dressing transgender man, long-distance marathon runner for charity and, lately, prospective British Labor Party candidate, the multi-lingual comedian-scholar Eddie Izzard also finds time to write and act when not performing his smart, public discourse-driven stand-up around the world. Literate and surreal, he personifies every challenge to social norms in dresses, heels and mascara yet easily persuades audiences to join his sociable, humane imaginings via manic riffs on politics, Shakespeare, Greek myth, Oscar Wilde, Tolkien and poultry, as in his recent memoir, Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens.
