Eddie Izzard (2015)

Edward John "Eddie" Izzard is an English stand-up comedian, actor and writer. His comedy style takes the form of rambling, whimsical monologue and self-referential pantomime. He had a starring role in the television series The Riches as Wayne Malloy and has appeared in many films such as Ocean's Twelve, Ocean's Thirteen, Mystery Men, Shadow of the Vampire, The Cat's Meow, Across the Universe, and Valkyrie. He has also worked as a voice actor, appearing in The Wild, Igor, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, and Cars 2. Izzard has cited his main comedy role model as Monty Python, and John Cleese once referred to him as the "Lost Python". In 2009, he completed 43 marathons in 51 days for Sport Relief in spite of having no prior history of long-distance running. He has won numerous awards including a Primetime Emmy Award for Individual Performance in a Variety or Music Program for his comedy special Dress to Kill, in 2000. Izzard's website won the Yahoo People's Choice Award and earned the Webby Award. On 6 September 2012, Izzard presented the medals to the athletes who had won the 800m T54 race at the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

About the Eddie Izzard Interview

Hello, it's Eddie Izzard here again. I’ve just finished filming the action-drama series “POWERS” which is launching on the 10 March on Playstation network.

Saturday, I’m off Australia and New Zealand to continue my grand 'Force Majeure' World Tour. I'm claiming it's the most extensive world comedy tour ever. I’ve played 25 countries so far and no one's disagreed as yet. The tour has now been performed in Russia, South Africa, France (in French), Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Turkey, Austria, Germany (in German), Serbia, Croatia, United States, Canada and more. (Force Majeure Dates: http://www.eddieizzard.com/gigs)

This world is a fascinating place, especially the weird and interesting (and fascinating) bits, so I’ve been researching facts about Australia and New Zealand. Let me know if you have any to share.

Thank you to everyone who sent in questions, I'm sorry I couldn't answer all of them. I have to go now pack my toothbrush to get ready to fly to Australia (and New Zealand). If you are in New Zealand or Australia over the next month I hope to see you at a gig.

Thanks again, Good Night/Good Morning.
