Eddie Izzard is a stand-up comedian and actor based in London, whose tour de force career in comedy has yielded several successful comedy tours, roles in critically acclaimed films and television series. Particularly known for his witty, rambling comic monologue as well as his predilection for wearing women's clothing on-stage, Izzard has not only done much to advance stand-up comedy into more intellectually rigorous territory, but has also increased the public's awareness and acceptance of transvestism perhaps more than any entertainer that came before him. Consistently ranked by critics as one of the top five British comedians performing today, as well as earning multiple awards for his work in comedy, Eddie Izzard continues to be a legend on the comedy circuit and his live shows in particular are not to be missed.
