Must share: Izzard

I recently discovered Eddie Izzard. He's crass. He's British. He's so my style. Particularly because he's a transvestite--sometimes.

Oh, and he's also on The Riches, which I haven't seen yet, but am now compelled to because he skips his accent. It's fascinating when actors strip out their accent for roles. I think it's generally a shame for the Irish, Scots, British and Australians, but for everyone else, I say, go for it.

I just saw him with a friend at Union Square Theatre and laughed until I cried. And then I went home and watched him some more on YouTube.

Have you heard of him? Am I completely behind on Izzard love?
