BELIEVE ME. A Memoir of Love, Death and Jazz Chickens

New York: Blue Rider Press, (2017). First edition. hardcover. Born in Yemen, raised in Northern Ireland, Wales and England, Eddie Izzard has proved himself to be a creative chameleon, inhabiting the stage, film and television screen with an unbelievable fervor. He lost his mother at the age of six, a devastating event. In his teens he dropped out of university and took to the streets of London as part of a comedy double act. When is partner went on vacation, Izzard kept busy by inventing a one-man escape act, and thus a solo career was ignited. As a stand-up comedian, Izzard has captivated audiences with his surreal, stream-of-consciousness comedy. As a self-proclaimed "action transvestite" Izzard broke a mold performing in makeup and heels, and has become as famous for his "total clothing" rights as he has for his art. Here, he recounts the dizzying rise he made from the streets of London to West End theaters, to Wembley Arena, Madison Square Garden, and the Hollywood Bowl. Illustrated from photographs. 348pp with photo credits. A fine copy in dust jacket. Item #14212
