Eddie Izzard Interview

eddiehero.jpg

Eddie Izzard is staking a serious claim to be the best person at everything in the world. Not only is he a world-famous comedian, but he has moved into acting, is planning to run for London Mayor in the near future and has run 43 marathons in 51 days.

We'd be pretty happy with just one of those things to be honest.

We caught up with him ahead of the release of his new DVD, Force Majeure to discuss the evolution of language, playing the piano in a stadium and the mental aspects of long distance running - so, just the usual stuff then.

Eddie Izzard: Force Majeure Live is released on Blu-Ray, DVD and Limited Edition DVD on 18th November. Preorder here
