Eddie Izzard Runs Again For Charity

Has the famous “action transvestite”, Eddie Izzard, traded his stilletos for sneakers permanently?  Hmmm, I don’t know about that, but Eddie has once again slipped on the running shoes for the Sport Relief charity. He was one of over 165,000 runners who showed up for the charity.

Sport Relief has a unique history of dedicated people doing extraordinary things to make a difference – from David Walliams’ swim across the English Channel, to Eddie Izzard’s amazing marathon a day around the UK.

And that’s not to mention the thousands of incredible people who rise to the challenge by doing the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile. Or our amazing fundraisers who do something fun and active to raise cash and help make the world of difference.

All the money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of poor and vulnerable people, both at home and across the world’s poorest countries. [SportRelief]

It’s nice to see that Eddie is doing active fundraisers. I mean, not that holding telethons isn’t effective, but it’s a great example for other people. Not that everyone needs to run over 1,000 miles like he did last year, but I think everyone should be able to do one mile.

BTW, nice legs!

Happy Birthday To Eddie Izzard

Happy birthday to Eddie Izzard!

Comedian, actor, runner (remember the 1,000 mile run last summer?) turns 48 today.

I hope he spends it running, jumping, climbing trees.

Eddie Izzard Departs NYC


Comedian and actor Eddie Izzard brought the house down at Madison Square Garden this past Saturday (January 16).  And with that out of the way, he’s headed out of NYC.

Eddie, who recently ran over 1,000 miles to raise money for Comic Relief, looks dashing in his pink scarf.

Bees love Eddie Izzard.
