Description

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)

Short. Sweet. Lovely.

I was fine listening until he told the last little story about getting the letter. Then it was instant waterworks. I always appreciate Eddie's open honestly

A short, sweet, informative vignette

I just wanted a quick listen and this was it. I found him very interesting though I never knew of the name Eddie Izzard before now. I love that his parents embraced him unconditionally.

Eddie is wonderful. this is not .

This talk rambles and is difficult to follow. It is not his humor. He's a funny guy but this is just an interview.

Technical Issue

I love Eddie Izzard - he is as fantasic in his personal life as he is when he is on stage performing but this conversation had so many technical glitches it was difficult to listen - the sound was not clear and the volume wasn't steady. I don't know if all audible session interviews suffer from this as this one if the first I have tried, but it is a shame as I am sure Izzard was his usual interesting self.

10 minutes long, all about the audiobook

If I'd known what it was, I wouldn't have bothered. It's just an ad for what they want you to pay for.

My favorite comedian

This is one of my favorite Eddie Izzard stand up shows! Hilarious and educational all at once. Eddie is a brilliant and clever comedian who doesn't need raunchy or lewd humor to make you break out into fits of laughter. I highly recommend his comedy shows to anyone!

Very interesting!

He makes me laugh so hard. Eddie Izzard's comic presentation is well organized and thought provoking. It's so much fun, you want to share it with others.

More interested in his art

I love Eddie, comedian and actor. I would have enjoyed more discussion about his art and less about his personal life. Yes, it does play a part but there is so much in that man's head that I would have been far more interested hearing about.
