Edward John “Eddie” Izzard (born February 7, 1962) is an English stand-up comedian and actor, known for his cross-dressing. His comedic style is expressed in rambling, surreal monologue and self-referential pantomime. In addition to touring, he is also a television, stage and film actor, and is active in charity work.
I saw this dude on cable and he was really funny. Very original. The transvestite shtick makes no sense and seems to have nothing to do with his show. I guess early in his carrer it helped him stand out for the pack. Maybe he was just working out his issues. Maybe it’s just an English thing (see photo below). Whatever is going on with him I’m sure he’s huge in the Mid-West.
