Crossing Humor: An Eddie Izzard Portrait
The NY Times has a most enjoyable feature today on the British entertainer Eddie Izzard. Here is a snippet.
“Some people would heckle me and say ‘Where’s the dress?’ and I’d say ‘Don’t oppress me, you Nazi’ — tends to shut them up. Because I have fought for the right to be able to wear a dress, not that I have to wear a dress. I didn’t jump out of a not-wearing-dress box into a have-to-wear-dress box.”
I recommend the full feature.
