Web Wednesday: Eddie Izzard

My plan is to post something from each comedian recommended on Fiction Friday last week, in no particular order.

Last Friday I asked everyone to tell me about their comic muses last week on Fiction Friday, which is currently in a fugue state, and thinks it's Humor Friday. I must take to a specialist in Zurich. (Okay, I stole that from Woody Allen, whose early essays were one of my favorite things, at least until he started shacking up with his step-daughter.)

Anyway, many of them were classics, and most were at least familiar to me, but Rachel, over at Rachel's Ramblings, recommended Charlie Izzard, and he's a pip!

That was cute. Izzard was in a very strange TV series with Minnie Driver about gypsies in the US. Did you happen to see it. Can't remember the name.

I cannot think of that show either, but I liked it...although how long can you hide out in a mansion and have every neighbor or work acquaintance find out your secrets with out it blowing up in your face...I know a few people who cannot stand Izzard, but I find him fascinating (he had an HBO show recently too I DVR'd), and a great study of English humor...
