As in Eddie Izzard. A comic who is a transvestite, who is amazingly funny. ( an Action Transvestite!)
If you don't know him, he stars on The Riches on FX with Minnie Driver. A good show, but it certainly does not show off his comedic talents.
The man is hysterical - and it's intelligent humor. Last night's bit was all historical( a lot of his bits are) but the funniest parts are when he goes off on a tangent and gets totally lost. You have to really pay attention to follow him.
This round he's not performing in drag. He didn't explain it to us, but someone said it's bc he thinks people come to see him in drag and not for his performance.
But he was awesome and 2 hours was not long enough, although with this sinus infection, I was about to die...
If you ever have a chance to see him live do it. If you aren't familiar with him, rent Dressed to Kill. That will get you hooked!
