Summary

Following the release of his best-selling autobiography, Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens, Eddie Izzard spoke to us about history, politics, books... and funky poultry.
As a transgender artist, Eddie explains how a steadfast ambition has helped him to overcome discrimination and prejudice, long enough to make it in the world of Hollywood. Now a hugely successful comedian and actor who's starred alongside the likes of Dame Judi Dench, George Clooney and Julia Roberts, Eddie takes a look back at his favourite roles and co-stars.
Eddie has also always been a firm supporter of the Labour party and, in this interview, hints at pursuing a future as a member of parliament – a well thought-out plan which he delves into further in his audiobook.
Written and performed in the keenly intelligent, wholly honest and predictably hilarious style that we have come to expect from Eddie, his audiobook Believe Me has been hailed by critics for its commentary on historical and sexual politics, mad ancient kings and chickens with guns. A critic wrote of it:
"Izzard is one of the funniest people alive, a talented actor, a sharp cross-dresser, an experienced marathon runner, and a great writer. You will have to read this if only to find out what a jazz chicken is." (The Philadelphia Inquirer)

Really low quality

Annoying interviewer asking poor quality questions, not really responding to the answers, and so short as to be little more than an ad for Eddie's book.

Wonderful little tidbit!

Long live Eddie Izzard! Love him and respect his views and sense of humor! I truly loved his autobiography and HIGHLY SUGGEST it to everyone! He's a true human being and never afraid to lay himself bare as it were. I respect that immensely and hope to get to see him live one day. Enjoy this little tidbit interview and be sure to check out his autobiography as well as his comedy specials as well! Enjoy! Lady Anne ^^ö^^
