Eddie Izzard speaking French
Eddie Izzard by Gorilla Film Magazine
Eddie Izzard is an English stand-up comedian, actor, writer, Executive Transvestite and Marathon runner! He regularly performs in French, in which he is fluent, and occasionally in German too. In 2003, he received an honorary Doctor of Letters from the University of East Anglia for his "pro-Europe campaigning", "his contribution to promoting modern languages and tolerance of other cultures and lifestyles" and for having "transcended national barriers" with his humour. He is, in short, a legend.
