Eddie Izzard's long-awaited full memoir - erudite, engrossing and above all very very, funny
Best-known for his cross-dressing stand-up comedy routines, Eddie Izzard was born in Yemen. After working as a street performer throughout the 1980s, he received his big break in 1993. He is the recipient of two Emmy Awards, two British Comedy Awards, a Webby and a Tony nomination. A committed activist, he received the 6th Annual Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism. He may or may not run for Mayor of London in 2020.
King of the Universe . . . Comic genius . . .
Entertainment incarnate * Telegraph *
Izzard is Wikipedia in heels. He's made his career out of hilarious, dizzying, surreal routines held up by their own daft logic . . . A force of nature * Radio Times *
Sheer Comic Genius. His humour reflects the scattershot lunacy of Monty Python, but with a sophisticated silliness that is entirely his own. He is the most brilliant stand-up comedian of his generation * New York Times *
A comedy gem * Guardian *
Izzard has a knack for reducing centuries' worth of history to just a few exquisite words (the Romans were just 'fascist plumbers', for example) * Time Out *
The funniest man in England * John Cleese *
The funniest man in, well, pretty much all of the known universe * Los Angeles Times *
Izzard is fleet of foot - even in Cuban heels * Independent *
Had the Pythons stuck it out, they'd certainly be doing Izzard-like gags * Chicago Tribune *
A consistent intelligence underpins Izzard's whimsy * Chortle *
True Izzardians are every bit as committed in their fandom as Star Trek or Dr Who fans * Guardian *
