Izzard’s  first  book,  Believe  Me,  was  just  chosen  by  Bill  Gates  as  one  of  the “5  Amazing  Books  I  Read  This  Year.” Released  on  June  13,  2017, Believe Me  is  a  New   York  Times  Best  Seller.    Writing  with  the  same  candor  and insight  evident  in  his   comedy,  he  reflects  on  a  childhood  marked  by  the loss  of  his  mother,  boarding  school,   and  alternative  sexuality,  as  well  as  a life  in  comedy,  film,  politics,  running,  and  philanthropy.  Honest  and  generous, Izzard’s Believe  Me  is  an  inspired  account  of  a  very  singular  life  thus  far.

Izzard  can  currently  be  seen  co-starring  opposite  Judi  Dench  as  her  son Bertie,  the   King  in  waiting  in  the  critically  acclaimed  film,  Victoria  and  Abdul. The  film   premiered  at  The  Venice  Film  Festival  on  September  3,  2017  and opened  to  the  public   on  September  22,  2017.

Over  the  course  of  a  thirty-year  career,  Eddie  Izzard  has  proved  himself  to be  a   creative  chameleon,  inhabiting  the  stage  and  film  and  television  screen with  an   unbelievable  fervor.  Born  in  Yemen  and  raised  in  Northern  Ireland, Wales,  and  England,   he  lost  his  mother  at  the  age  of  six  and  that  has affected  the  rest  of  his  life.   In  his  teens,  he  dropped  out  of  university  and took  to  the  streets  of  London  as  part   of  a  comedy  double  act.    When  his 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  lines  such  as  “Cake  or  Death?”, “Death  Star  Canteen" and  “Do  You  Have  a Flag?”  have  the   status  of  great  rock  lyrics.  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.  In Believe  Me,  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.
