Eddie Izzard: Comedy Royalty

I saw Eddie Izzard on Jimmy Fallon this morning. Yes, he was on a few days ago. I dvr both Jimmy and Conan. I'm way too attached to sleeping to stay up to watch their shows. Plus, this way I can fast forward through the boring commercials. I digress.

Eddie Izzard was on Jimmy Fallon to pitch his new dvd coming out next month. He also said he's run 43 marathons in 50 days. Or something crazy like that. Holy CRAP!!!!! Talk about a dedicated runner. He's been in a few major movies (that I've seen) My Girlfriend is a Superhero (As the super villian) and Oceans Twelve and Thirteen (as the tech guru they go to.) He was also on the tv show The Riches with Minnie Driver

I've been a fan of his since my friend Sunny introduced me to him via Eddie Izzard: Dress to Kill. Hilarious!

He talks about everything and anything. History, Languages, Transvestites, Snowboarding, Chiropractors, Religion, etc. I dare you to watch this and not laugh. The entire Dress to Kill dvd is available on youtube. So go ahead and watch to your hearts content.

Lea, I can imagine he really added some cache to the MAC line. Like they needed anymore.

Kiki, I'm glad you've been enjoying him. He is hilarious! Especially the puberty bit at the end of Dress to Kill. "'Ello Sue....I've got legs....d'you like bread?"
